Description

Discover is a completely new way to explore Wikipedia, inviting you to sit back, relax, and expand your knowledge through a delightful experience that doesn't feel like you're reading an encyclopedia.

* Also check out our latest iPad app "Decks" and rediscover shopping *

Launch Discover every day to enjoy a new cover showing featured content from Wikipedia. Read articles from the cover or search for the best articles related to your favorite topics. Articles are presented in elegant multi-pages layouts with large photos for the best reading experience.

Continue your exploration by looking at the best related articles selected by Discover, or by selecting any word and jump to the corresponding Wikipedia article or dictionary definition.

Discover can even be used without an Internet connection to revisit previously viewed covers or articles.

Enjoyable

:
A great way to wiki. Nice interface, easy to use and fun. Thanks.

5/5 stars

Stunning app

:
I am a wikipedia fanatic---Constant User--and this is a lovely way to use it without the eyestrain its normal interface requires. The app leaves out some of the end and side stuff (eg family trees of kings or the links to other categories or the notes or the see-alsos,) but a tap gets you to the actual website if you want such things. Tremendous job, Guys.
