Today we are going to know about the Wikipedia App. The free encyclopedia for your phone!
The official Wikipedia app helps you find, discover, and explore various contents on Wikipedia and increase your knowledge. Wikipedia is written collaboratively by volunteers and consists of more than 40 million articles in nearly 300 different languages. We are familiar with the web version. Now it's time for the app which provides you, your favorite online encyclopedia at your fingertips. When you open the app for the first time, here comes the simple grey colored start up page. Next is just a few line summary of what Wikipedia actually is, in a clean white. You can add or remove different languages based on your preference before starting exploring the app. Viewing contents on our desired languages is the one of the biggest advantage of Wikipedia. But remember, not all card types are available in all Wikipedia languages.

In the app, the first thing we need to do is, to Customize Explore Feed. You can now choose what to show on your feed and also prioritize your most preferred or favorite types of content. How to do that? Click on the customize option. Here you will get the list of the types of contents that are displayed in the feed. Like - On this day, Trending, Today on Wikipedia etc. If you dont wanna see a particular category, unchecked the box beside it. You can also change the order as per priority. Click on the three lines on right side and pull it up or down to change it. This is indeed very helpful. As it gives you liberty to not get into the contents of the things, which you don't need.

For any app I believe this is a very useful function where you can type down any topic you want to know about to have a detailed information on it. Wikipedia has it too. Even it has an integrated voice search function which might come handy incase you are feeling lazy to type! Try it out.

My Lists & History:
Here you can find all your saved articles. You can categorize your saved articles into various cards. Like I have - Favorite fruit, Favorite places, Favorite topics etc. Now, how to create the cards? Suppose you are reading this article about football. Once you click on Save button. It would give you an option to create a new card. Create it, give it a new name and boom! you are set. You can access your saved articles even offline. You can also sync lists to your Wikipedia account across devices. This Card feature is particularly useful as it helps you in sorting your favorite articles into their rightful place. You don't need to go through all the articles to find a particular one. Just go to the specific card and find it. History holds the list of all your browsed articles.

In the Settings tab, you can change your preferred language. Changing app theme, is something I Like a lot. You can Have Light, dark, Black or sepia theme. It would also help you in getting a better experience while reading at night. My personal favorite is sepia one which gives you a feel of book reading. Changing the text size is also possible from here. You can also opt for image dimming in dark theme. One of the most helpful feature is that you can sync reading lists across different devices by saving them to your Wikipedia account.

There are loads of app available to boost your knowledge. But to be frank for me, Wikipedia would be a choice over any other option, always. I am sure, most of us use it while browsing to get information about any particular incident, place, personality or anything else. Wikipedia has a vast collection of articles about almost everything. Now, as we are quite familiar with web version, why would you want to install the app? Well for me, I would definitely go for the app, as it uses less data and loads the article much faster than in browsers. More over the inbuilt voice search, dark mode, Near by are other add ons. There is nothing, that I don't like about the app. But one thing I would like to say is, while using the app for the first time, the interface might seems to be a little messy for some of you. Once you get used to it, that won't be any issue at all.
I will give it 4.5 out of 5
