Wikipedia Unlock iPhone application for Apple iPhonesA new application being launched on Apple iPhone is no more a celebration, except when exclusive websites launch their app for the iPhone or iPod Touch. Recently, Wikipedia created a stir by launching ‘official’ iPhone application. The launch of the app named ‘Wikipedia Mobile' by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation will be available free for download now from Apple iTunes App Store.

This Wikepedia app is termed ‘official’ since there is also other application for the iPhone which makes Wikepedia accessible. Wikepedia has been a favorite with iPhone developers who have then and now developed Wiki-style encyclopedia apps for the iPhone and iPod touch. Some of the apps influenced by Wikepedia have also been much appreciated. Even, Wikimedia Foundation has gone on record to acknowledge that some features of ‘near to’ Wikepedia app are better in comparison to the official software; which in this version is mainly focusing on speed and simplicity.

Is Wikepedia iPhone app an upgrade of mobile version?

The newly launched 1.6 MB open-source Wikepedia application is considered by analysts as an upgraded and sophisticated adaptation of the mobile version of the Wikipedia website. However, one of the spectacular advantages of the iPhone app (not seen in the mobile version) is that, it provides you with the pioneering feature of saving your Wikipedia browsing history for quick access and later use.

Prime Feature focus – Wikepedia Mobile

The developers of Wikepedia Mobile iPhone app in the current and its first iPhone version is concentrating on speed and simplicity. One of the positive aspects from the promoters of this iPhone app, Wikimedia Foundation is that they are aware of their short-comings and are ardently requesting feedback from users, and welcoming suggestions from other developers and programmers as well. Wikimedia Foundation is confident that in the next version, it will be able to come up with a full-featured version of Wikepedia Mobile.

Wikepedia touches the 3 million mark

In a recent announcement, Wikipedia has confirmed that web users had contributed more than 3 million English-language articles to the user-generated website. This is an amazing achievement for Wikimedia Foundation whose mission is to spread free knowledge and pursuit everything to meet its goal.

Now with Wikepedia being accessible to millions of iPhone users worldwide; it is for sure Wikepedia has many other milestones to explore. And Wikimedia Foundation is honest in its duties to take Wikepedia to the next level by housing the source code and continuing to update the application through Apple channels with successive releases.
