Wikipedia Goes Mobile - Thanks to Bonfire Media

by Darla Mack

Wikilogo Bonfire Media has done it again.  The company behind my favorite eBay application, which as you can see I've been using since 2005, has now announced their new WikiMobile application.

Carry Wikipedia wherever you go, and you'll never be stumped again! Want to look up the names of Britney's exes or the effects of global warming? Looking for how many homers A-Rod's hit or the capital of Zimbabwe? With WikiMobile, you gain access to all 2 million Wikipedia articles, including pictures and quick facts. Bookmark your favorites for quick and easy tracking. Being a walking encyclopedia is now at your fingertips.


Wikimobiledm_menu WikiMobile is a java app that brings the functions and features of Wikipedia to your mobile.  In the images shown I chose to do a basic search for the Nokia N95.  The same content that you see on the web is whats produced into this application, including the options to view images.

While the app is an excellent tool to have, its currently only available to supported handsets from Verizon and AT&T.  Nokia N75 users can benefit from this by going to Media Net and searching apps under "Education and How To's". 

The cost for WikiMobile is subscription of $2.99 per month.

For more information please visit Bonfire Media.

Why on earth would anyone pay a monthly subscription for this? You can just visit Wikipedia in a web browser :|


If you are looking for a wiki like application for mobile phones, just try the real wikimobile midlet at www.wikimobile.eu. With it, you can create multimedia documents in a wiki like format, inserting photos, video, sounds and text in a file you can share with others (and many other features).
Store all you life in your pocket! and share it!


It would be more useful if it were free and native Symbian sis.
