Possibly THE BEST SITE on the entire Web

Wikipedia is probably the best site on the entire World Wide Web. The information provided by Wikipedia is always accurate, up to date and easy to use.

I have explained to my children, ages 10 and 12, just how much easier they have access to any information on any subject at their fingertips. I explained to them how information was researched and provided when I was in grade school.

I think they have a better understanding and appreciation of how, who and why the information they are able to obtain has changed, accessed and obtained since the creation of the word wide web.

I would just like to say THANK YOU to all of Wikipedia’s contributors and the time they have invested. It is also such a blessing to be able to trust the information, without doubt, Wikipedia provides.

Subtopics should be easier to find...

I do like this app, however, sometimes I want to find a specific factoid about someone or something. With the app, I have to scroll and scroll and scroll in order to find something. With the regular website, you can click on the subtopics (discography, personal life, later years and death, etc.). Maybe I have not discovered how to do this yet on the app, but it is annoying.
