If you love Wikipedia and have an Android phone, you’re in for a treat!
Today we’ve released a revamped Wikipedia for Android app, now
available on Google
Our new features include:
- *Speed* – Our new, native app allows you to browse and edit Wikipedia
faster than ever before.
- *Editing* – You can edit Wikipedia on the app. Logged in or logged
out, we thank you for all your contributions.
- *Recent pages* – We provide you with your reading history, so you can
tap as many links as you like without ever getting lost.
- *Saved pages* – You can save select pages for offline reading and
browse them even when you don’t have a data connection.
- *Share* – Use your existing social networking apps to share in the sum
of all human knowledge.
- *Language support* – The app allows you to seamlessly switch to
reading Wikipedia written in any language.
- *Wikipedia Zero* – We’ve partnered with cellular carriers around the
world to provide Wikipedia free of data charges to users in many developing
- *Night mode* – We’ve gotten lots of great beta user feedback; one
feature people love is reading Wikipedia in darker environments. The
inverted colour scheme offered by night mode will make that much easier.
- *Discussions* – Talk pages are an important part of Wikipedia for both
new users and experienced editors alike. We’re bringing them to the app.
This release is just the beginning! We’re still working hard on creating
new features to make the app the best Wikipedia reading and editing
experience out there.
