WikipanionWho doesn’t just adore Wikipedia?  And if you don’t claim to “adore” it, you can’t deny that you use it often!  What’s not to love?  A free website that allows its users to add, modify or delete its content at any time – sounds ideal to me!  This website is packed with lengthy content about people, tv shows, animals, food, objects, along with anything and everything else you can think of!  It’s sort of a knowledge management and note taking website.  I don’t even know if there was any purpose at all to explaining Wikipedia, because I’m sure 99.9% of the world already knows…

 

WikipanionAlthough I have always been a Wikipedia guru, I recently downloaded the iPhone app, Wikipanion by Robert Chin.  It’s such a fast and easy way to use Wikipedia!  Search and navigation is made simple!  You can even show your browsing history grouped by date, which is cool in the case that you want to refer back to a certain search.  Wikipanion has it all, even dual language searching!  Not only can you bookmark specific searches, but you can actually bookmark sections of pages in your specific search!  Although, I think the page setup in Wikipanion is perfect, you may not agree.  In that case, Wikipanion offers interactive font resizing!  This app really does have it all!  You can basically customize the app to read and look the way you want it to, which is something you cannot do at all on the actual Wikipedia website.  Wikipanion is a must have app for anyone who cares to know everything about anything!  Download it now.
