Hello mobile Wikimedians,
The iOS app team just pushed an initial beta of our next major update to
our TestFlight channel. If you'd like to enroll as an iOS beta tester
please sign up here:
This beta includes the following major changes:
- New Places tab: explore Wikipedia content near you or even on the other
side of the globe. This is a major update of our geolocation based "Nearby"
feature is now called places, since it does a lot more than show you whats
nearby. Places includes a map based interface for browsing, extended geo
search capabilities, and even the ability to see where your saved articles
- New login system: totally re-written login system, including support for
password reset, accessible account creation and 2FA for Admins, with more
improvements to come before release.
- Bug fixes for issues with Share-a-Fact, face recognition and lead
images, and searching with apostrophes.
We look forward to your feedback!
PM, Wikipedia app for iOS
