Editors' Review

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.

"I might like it if I could actually install it"

October 19, 2010  |  By thisisshitty

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

NONE - IT DOESN'T WORK

Cons

Can't download and install through the mobile devise or through the desktop manager - BIG BIG CON!! Why is this still out here since no one can use it?

Summary

Won't download to the BB Curve 9700 - error message - and won't load through the application manager on the desktop manager either. Thus, it's a useless application, don't waste your time here trying to download and use it.
