Wikipedia is the official application for Wikipeda, and allows you to access the entire content of one of the greatest sources of information on the Internet, just by making a few movements on the screen of your Android device.
Its interface is very simple, and has been reduced to simply providing a space to write the word you are interested in and to search for it on the database. However, thanks to this extreme simplicity, Wikipedia perfectly fulfils its purpose, and ends up being very handy and quick to use.
The content that can be accessed from the app is exactly the same as that available on the website. However, the convenience of accessing it directly from an app is what makes all the difference.
So here it is, the Official Wikipedia app for Android. Don’t expect anything beyond what it should be, it’s just a faster and a somehow more comfortable way to browse through Wikipedia.
Although at the start you’ll land on the “today’s featured article” and the current events (aka news) the virtues of this app are found out just by tapping on ‘menu’. There not only you can change the language the current article is written (and you know how important it may become in some cases) but also look for near articles according to where you are right now and choose to store an article in order to read it later offline. Sharing options are as fast as useful and include the most popular social networks and Evernote and Whatsapp options if you have these apps already installed.
In fact, it’s a rather simple app. However, a rather simple app linking to who knows how many articles in the most comprehensive encyclopedic compilation of knowledge that humans have ever gathered, well, it’s quite worth.
