How to add a viral waitlist to your mobile application (iOS or Android)

Jorge Ferreiro

Updated: Sep 03, 2023

Adding a waitlist to your mobile app is one of the most effective ways to get more users organically and increase your brand awareness.

Users love competitions and gamified waitlists -- we've seen our clients getting 10x more users and up to 200K new leads launching referral campaigns.

We suggest several options to add ZooTools Panda to your mobile app. The option you choose depends on your development resources and time to market.

Option 1: Embed your form in a WebView

The fastest way to add a waitlist to your mobile application is by opening a WebView (an iframe on the web world) with the ZooTools Viral form.

This way, you will not need to build a waitlist yourself, and just use our no-code solution, it's fast, convenient, and requires limited coding.

However, using a Webview is limited, for example, you will only be able to customize certain elements of your waitlist based on what ZooTools Panda offers.


Fast to integrate. Low code (not much to develop)


Limited personalization -- it's a website, so doesn't feel native.

Best for

You need to launch the campaign asap and have limited developer resources.

Option 2: Custom implementation via API (advanced)

Most of ZooTools Panda mobile clients decide to build their own waitlist experience from scratch using ZooTools Panda API.

Clients decide to choose this option to have full brand customization for the waitlist and save up to 2-3 weeks of development work using an enterprise-ready referrals API.
