Wikimedia Finally Releases Android Wikipedia App

A few days ago, Wikimedia finally released the long awaited Wikipedia Android app in the Android Market. I’m not too sure how we missed this one as all of us here at TalkAndroid are big fans of the Wiki. In case you aren’t familiar with Wikipedia (aka live under a rock), its the ultimate place to find answers to any and all of your yearning questions.

This new app will allow you to do the same thing the webpage does, only this time you will never even need to open your browser. The Wikipedia app also has the ability to save all of your searches so you may return at a later time and read those articles you previously searched for. You can also search article based on location and even share the results with your buddies. Hit up the link below to see what all the rage is about.

Thanks Trent!

About the Author: Stacy Bruce

Stacy Bruce was born and raised in Spokane Washington. He attended the University of Washington to study pre-med only to change his course study a year later to forensic science. Although currently not a doctor or a scientist, some believe he posseses the knowledge of both. He was a resident of San Diego California for ten years, lived beachside and sometimes wonders why the hell he moved back to Spokane. A multi-talented man, Stacy is a fabricator, an artist, a gear head, a tech junkie and at most, the disciple of Casanova. Growing up, he was always enthralled with electronics, gadgets and gizmos. Throughout his life he has had one, if not two, of every cool and new electronic device available. He began his smartphone experience with the original iPhone. After realizing it was more like theirPhone, he decided he wanted the ability to customize, so Stacy moved to the OG Droid and has been a loyal Android fanatic ever since. Moving through all of the top tier Verizon phones, he recently retired his Droid Charge in favor of the Galaxy Nexus, only to wonder what great device Samsung will come out with next. Stacy is a busy new homeowner in where he lives with his beautiful girlfriend and two dogs.
