The Android app for Wikipedia has a few useful extra features
Wikipedia for Android is handy but somewhat limited way of accessing the 20 million plus articles available from the online encyclopaedia.
While there's a mobile version of the Wikipedia site, the Android app has some useful additions including an offline reading mode and the ability to search for articles related to your physical location. This is an interesting feature if you happen to be sightseeing and fancy a bit of extra information.
In actuality, Wikipedia for Android is little more than a means of looking at the Wikipedia website with a slightly better interface. There's a dedicated search bar at the top of the app and navigating around the app is slick. A full history of pages visited and search results is also stored.
There's even a rather strange option to read an article in a variety of different languages.
For a free application, Wikipedia for Android is a decent way to read and browse through the vast number of articles on the service.
