Wikipedia is one of the largest information sources available on the market and is able to provide useful data about almost any subject. On the market you will find a few Wikipedia apps available for your iPhone 4 that will help you locate information of interest faster, no matter the subject involved. Here are the most popular Wikipedia apps that you should install on your smartphone.
Wapedia provides the fastest access possible to the content of Wikipedia and other wiki sites able to provide the needed information. This app offers full-screen reading and allows you to save articles for offline analysis. It allows you even to easily load long articles. You have the possibility to share your articles with your friends via Twitter and Facebook. Released in 2004, Wapedia is one of the most popular ways to access Wikipedia content.
Another great iPhone 4 Wiki app that you should check out is Wikipanion which was designed to access, search and display Wikipedia entries directly on your smartphone. It allows you to use multiple search methods including Google search, Smart completion and full text Wikipedia search. You have the possibility to bookmark individual section pages and change the font size of the text. This app also lets you save images to the Photo library.
Quickpedia is a free Wikipedia app designed for the iPhone 4 which catches your attention with an easy-to-read interface and search history. You have the opportunity to browse random Wiki entries or search for the most popular ones. This app comes with the so called “nearby” feature which uses the smartphone’s geo-location to search for information on local towns and landmarks.
I also need to mention WikiTap which helps you find useful information on Wikipedia by simply typing a few characters into the search box available. This app comes with a nice interface and easy to use controls. It also lets you watch videos relevant to the topic and listen to how a specific word is pronounced. If you are interested, you can also add videos and pictures to a Wikipedia subject of your interest. The browser pages are saved as links in the History tab, so that you can access them later. This app is also a great reference to treasures and pronunciation.
Wikiamo is another free Wikipedia app designed for the iPhone that comes with Safari like UI.
