Developer's Description

Here is the winner of the Yahoo Mobile Developer's Conference hackathon in NYC, August 2015. See for yourself on your phone and on your Android Wear watch.Be smart, get the facts.

Get Wikipedia out of the search box and into the everyday world.On your watch, swipe through pictures of nearby sites from Wikipedia. Double tap any photo on your SmartWatch to start walking directions to that location without touching your phone. Of course, a watch is not required - the phone has a complete set of features including navigation.On your phone view the same nearby page photos in a summary list or swipe through the full page with a tap on the list. Open the page on Wikipedia or tap the arrow to get walking directions. You can set the distance for the search and change the number of results in the Settings screen. Use the menu to load up Wikipedia's photo of the day or the featured story of the day.This app is ad-driven.
