Listen to Wikipedia
By Michael Oltman
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
See and hear every change to every article on Wikipedia in real-time. Bells are sounded for additions and strings are plucked for subtractions. The pitch changes with the size of the edit – the larger the edit, the deeper the note. Green circles show edits from unregistered contributors, and purple circles mark edits performed by automated bots. Orchestral swells and a blue banner welcome new editors.
The app has support for English, German, Spanish, Swedish, Russian, and 27 other languages.

What can I say?
This is beautiful! I would easily pay for this app anyday. The sensual sounds, the lovely circles that appear and fade, this app truly is one of a kind... It's wonderfully relaxing, simplistic, and well put together. It downloads fast so there is no reason not to give it a try! I've spent over 50 dollars purchasing all kinds of apps and this one is a favorite; goes to show how beautiful the power of community (wikipedia) truly is when combined in real time!🌷🌻
Amazing but there's one thing-
It would be awesome if you guys made it do background play.. I mostly use this app to calm me down when I have anxiety so it would be great if I didn't have to keep tapping to keep my phone from locking- other than that it's flawless
To all people who downloaded the app: the sounds of the app are nice, but aren't we missing the point of the app, which is the real time edits. I like the sounds as well.
I don't know why this app was created sooner, good work. Keep up with updates & everything.
