Have you ever tried to use a mobile device to access the wildly popular Wikipedia website. If so you might have found the process extremely frustrating due to the fact that the pages are not designed to function with such devices. Now, the iWiki app takes any page and makes it entirely functional for mobile users to enjoy.

The user of the iWiki app can browse and read Wikipedia content freely and still get the benefits of the standard page layouts, linked terms, and more. The app allows the user to view each page in portrait or landscape format, save an entire page for offline use, access full-text or individual term searching, use the embedded links for sections of the main page, open any image, use the table of contents built into any article, and even retain a history of their viewing pattern.

This means that each item will appear almost identical to the full computer version, with the exception that the standard table of contents enjoys an individual screen. Sections are also easily closed with a turn of the arrow, making use of the site even more streamlined and simple.

There are many web browsers for mobile apps, but the iWiki app is designed to make the Wikipedia website usable and functional on the small screen of any suitable device.

This app is designed to function strictly with iPod Touch and iPhone devices and works in all thirty-two languages that Wikipedia appears. The cost for the app is $1.99 and all updates are made available at no additional charge.

If you are tired of being unable to use Wikipedia through your mobile device, this is definitely the app to download right away.
