7 Awesome Wikipedia Apps for iPad

7 Awesome Wikipedia Apps for iPad | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it

"A few days ago we posted an article listing some iPad apps that teachers can use to create wikis on the go . One of our readers just sent us some new suggestions but this time about Wikipedia apps. We have checked the apps and found them working quite good. We have even furthered our search to include more apps to this list.

The apps below are meant to help you enhance Wikipedia browsing on your iPad. You will be able to have the same reading experience you have when using the web version. If you have other suggestions or know about another app that can do the same then don't hesitate to share with us and generalise the knowledge."
