App Review – WikiMe

wikime1
Developer: SupportWare
Category: Lifestyle
Price: £0.59

The addition of GPS added a massive amount of functionality to the iPhone, not only in the sense that it made the Maps application that much better, but that it allows applications to make use of the location data in incredibly clever ways. This app from SupportWare takes your current location and finds Wikipedia entries from that area so you can get a slice of local history, find out about events that are taking place and generally fill you brain with local knowledge without having to buy a guidebook. If you don’t get around much you can also type in a location or postcode to get information on other areas. The interface is very easy to use and the app is good at sourcing content. For a nominal fee it’s definitely worth a download, especially if you are about to go on your holidays and can afford roaming charges. This is another well thought out app that is great value at just 59p. Definitely worth keeping on your phone for when you want quick facts about a place you are visiting, or you’re in need of finding local places of interest.
