the stories I heard so far outside this list are

and the way they upload their pictures is still a bit shaky. Also the source
code doesn't see open source?
The code is just about 200-250 lines in Python, so it might not be as
usable as our official WLM application. I am, however, not able to
test it because my smartphone uses an old Android 2.1 :-(
At the same time, it is interesting to see what an
open API can do :)
They are not using any of our APIs at the moment; the data they use is
based on a recent Wikipedia dump, as I have been told, and has not
been updated since (as is the case with our database).
