Free Wikipedia PlayBook App Now in App World

Wikipedia PlayBook3 Wikipedia PlayBook

We told you before that one of RIM’s employees, @gordtanner, that came from their TinyHippos acquisition was working on a Wikipedia app. Specifically he was porting their HTML5 open source app to work on the PlayBook through PhoneGap. Now that app is officially in App World directly from the Wikimedia Foundation and is totally free. The font size is a bit small for my taste but definitely makes browsing Wikipedia much easier. Update: You can change the font size in the settings to be easier to read.

  1. you can change the font size in the setting. Please don’t say something negative about the app if you haven’t even tried it.

  2. RIM should work on finding a way to recommend these sort of settings during the application build process. Either way they are already in their UI Design guidelines:

    “Use a font size of 21 pixels for normal text and 36 pixels for titles. You can use other font sizes, but avoid using any font smaller than 15 pixels.”

  3. Hmm. It’s an okay app. Prefer the website. BUt that’s just me. These need to keep coming…the higher profile apps that is
