Wikipedia

It's been a long time coming, but Wikipedia has finally released an official Android app, sneaking it into the market a few days ago. It's kind of ironic timing given that Wikipedia is blacked out today in protest of SOPA and PIPA, but everything seems to be working on the mobile version.

Features of the app include:

  • Save for later for offline use
  • Search articles nearby
  • Share articles
  • Multiple language support
  • Full screen search

It's great to finally see an official Android app from Wikipedia. Alternatives that we've used have been decent, but it's nice to have one straight from the Wikipedia developers. The free app is available in the Android Market. We've got links to it after the break.
