No question should go unanswered…â€œWIKIPEDIAâ€ is here! The encyclopedia of the ages, the darling of the 21st Century and the resource of resources comes to the iPhone in a free application. Curious about John Lennon’s birthday? Look it up!
Just click on â€œWIKIPEDIAâ€ and a home page magically transports readers to Europe for the Italian War of 1542-1546, via â€œTodayâ€™s Featured Article.â€ Scroll down with a fingertip to see the â€œIn The Newsâ€ section devoted to current events like the dust storms of Australia, or the earthquake in India.
At the top of the screen, simply enough, is a search engine for the Appâ€™s amazing archive of information. Even professors admit that the usefulness of this tool cannot be ignored, as â€œWIKIPEDIAâ€ makes a great starting point for any research project.
Now that the power of the web siteâ€™s encyclopedia is completely mobile, information is traversed from the pocket to the hand, anywhere. The â€œWIKIPEDIAâ€ App provides the complete array of background information that the web site has: histories, biographies, definitions (and more), but it gives it all to the small screen of oneâ€™s iPhone.
