Does your Wikipedia mobile App expect our full content layout?

If so we have an upcoming change this week that you should be aware of. We’re in the final part of our new device detection testing that will automatically redirect any mobile agent we recognize over to its corresponding .m mobile gateway.This means that if your app declares a mobile UA as recognized by WURFL and connects directly to us we will redirect that traffic to .m.wikipedia.org and NOT .wikipedia.org.
Those apps that use an intermediate gateway which don’t have a mobile user agent will not be affected. If on the other hand your app does all of your logic then you will need to explicitly identify your UA to us.  Or, ensure that your UA contains “bot” to bypass redirection.
If this is not the behavior that you want then please let us know at know on meta or come find us on freenode #wikimedia-mobile.
