Plain, but effective

Search Wikipedia articles fast from a familiar-looking interface on your BlackBerry.

When you want answers, Wikipedia is the place to go. This simple app for BlackBerry leaves the bells and whistles to other developers and dives straight in to creating a bare bones, but effective doorway to Wikipedia.com. The replicated search interface will help you feel right at home as it quickly grabs and displays your search results in your phone's default browser.

Click "Go" to pull up the closest-matching article or "Search" to see all possible Wikipedia matches. Until Wikipedia or another developer creates a richer, fully native Wikipedia reader, this app is just satisfying enough.
