I remember sitting down with an Encyclopedia set as a kid and just paging through it. You could get lost in one and spend hours jumping from subject to subject. V for Wikipedia ($4.99) recreates that childhood joy by combining Wikipedia with your iPhone.
At the most basic level, V for Wikipedia takes standard Wikipedia pages and makes them look incredible. The typography is fantastic and the layout is designed for a native iOS reading experience. But where the app really shines is in its other cool features. You can check out the most-read articles and see what people all around the globe are reading most right now. Or you can discover interesting Wikipedia articles about nearby places by sharing your location with the app. You also get rich previews in search results, bookmarks & history and Apple Watch compatibility (nearby places, voice search, Handoff and bookmarking).
There are so many cool details in this app it’s hard to get to them all. A few other notable features include; inline footnote references, a dark reading mode, text search within articles themselves, Wikipedia editing, keyboard shortcuts, code syntax highlighting, Split View support on iPad and a ton more. It’s just an all around awesome app, I highly recommend grabbing it and exploring your heart out.
