  • Native Wikipedia App for iOS Re-launched in the iOS App Store, Grab it Now!

    On Thursday, the popular open source Web resource known as Wikipedia re-launched its iOS application in the iOS App Store. Version 4.0 of the application has been completely re-built from the ground up with a native Objective-C framework. What users can expect from this are improvements with speed, reliability, and fluidity.

    Wikipedia notes that apart from the obvious changes under the hood, users are going to see right off the bat that the application's new interface is going to fit along just nicely with iOS 7/iOS 8. It has been designed with the new operating system in mind, so it's flat and zippy as users would expect.

    Included in the application is a table of contents, a new sidebar for navigating articles that you're searching though, editing features for editing articles that you're viewing, and localization improvements. Features of the newly-released application via Wikipedia include:

    * Speed, the app is faster than ever.
    * Editing both logged in or not.
    * Recent pages so you never got lost in the depths of Wikipedia.
    * Save pages for offline reading.
    * Share articles with others.
    * Read articles in a different language.
    * Wikipedia Zero, supporting zero-rated access with participating carriers.
    The Wikipedia application is an open source application and Wikipedia has made the source code available at this link. The team is actively looking for experience Objective-C programmers for future improvements to their application.

    To grab the all-new Wikipedia application for your iOS device, you can head over to this App Store link and download it for free.
