Editors' Notes

Wikipedia is terrific: it’s armed us with countless life-saving nuggets of information. This app takes all that priceless information and spruces up each page with its own bespoke design. Essentially, it provides Wikipedia with a handsome filter. You simply search for whatever you’re interested in. Our favourite feature, however? The way it uses GPS to pinpoint your location on an interactive map and offer up a handful of useful and interesting places for you to read about.

Not worth it.

I’ve had this app for years and I still use Wikipedia in browser. It’s counter intuitive to use and you have to buy it, I really have no idea why I bought it but please don’t waste your money like I did.
