Official Wikipedia App Makes It To Android


The official Wikipedia App hit the Android Market last week and somehow slipped past most people’s radar. If you were lucky enough to have found out about it before the SOPA blackout yesterday, you were treated to Wikipedia access via the app, while most everyone else remained in the dark. At least we know about it now, and I’m sure there are quite a few people who have been waiting on an official app for Android. If you happen to be one of those people, you’ll be pleased to know it’s available now, and offers many great features such as:

  • Save articles to read later or offline
  • Search articles nearby
  • Share articles using Android “Share” function
  • Read articles in a different language
  • Full screen search

Just another quick and easy way to access the over 20 million articles in 280 languages offered by Wikipedia. The app is free and available to download in the Android Market. App link provided below.
