Wikipedia Mobile in Review – Wikipedia -vs- Wikipedia; Wikipedia wins!!

wikipedia_mobile1

With this review, I’m assuming that people are familiar with Wikipedia, an open sourced encyclopedia that anyone can contribute and review, and that it’s a wonderful source of information.

Not only is the interface well designed, it comes loaded with features that even includes purchasing tickets right within the app. Nice.

Well, after using Happy Tapper’s Gratitude for the past few days, I believe I have found a great reason to start my very own journal.
