“Sooner than later”, this phrase no longer has that charm when it comes to Wikipedia android app. I believed ‘may be’ it happens; the “good things come to those who wait”, but after seeing new Wikipedia app for android, it has made me a firm believer.
As a matter of fact, users of android devices didn’t get any specific app for their devices but iOS devices holders had it. However in 2012, the app was made available on Play Store – which made it almost 2 years late already. This app was displayed in Google Play Store in Gingerbread screen shots without any good impression imposing to any of the android users. But, the recent update has shown that Wikipedia beta app has made those updates which are worthwhile to have.
Wikipedia beta app has gone native. Now you can experience faster, smoother and improved UI that looks better than it was ever before. Now, you can have the history, which is maintained as per your pages. You can pick up from your history any topics to read them later. No need to move into your browser’s history to pick up any of the old topics. Wikipedia android app has a side bar now to offer for this feature.
Do you have a Wikipedia page of your own? Or do you edit and update someone else’s Wikipedia page. If you are manager of a celebrity or of a whole band now you are at ease. Do you have information to put into Wikipedia pages or some information to edit? At this time, you can do it with your Wikipedia app for android. As far as, the editing version of the app is concerned, they have improved the toolbar. The icons are now more visible to select and tap for the action. The buttons layout is now extendable. Even the help section allows you to take a look on sentence structures and the common formats you have in the text throughout.
Take a look of the gorgeous UI from your mobile. You can update your app to its beta version, they have made it available to every user of android mobile or tablet holder.
