Wikipedia Android App Gets updated, Users Now Allowed to Edit Articles on the Go
Wikipedia, the famous encyclopedia that has been a gold mine for tons of students and pupils over the past years has been updated with a new Android app, that’s completely revamped from what you knew before. This is the beta version we’re talking about, so beware of the usual potential crashes or bugs.
The interface of Wikipedia Beta has changed, adopting the flat design that’s so hip these days and it comes with nice visuals. The previous version of the app had a Gingerbread vibe to it and in 2014 that simply couldn’t cut it anymore. The app offers a sliding menu, that includes features like History, Bookmarks and Random Article. We also get a table of contents for each article, allowing users to jump to the area they need.
Editing is also available straight from the app, so you can log into your Wikipedia account and edit any article. Wikipedia Beta also allows you to read an article in any of the languages it’s available in, not just English. Finally, there’s Wikipedia Zero support here, which means on some carriers around the globe you’ll be able to browse the encyclopedia without paying for the data traffic.
