The newly launched Wikipedia iOS app trades in the website's simplistic layout for an interface that encourages discovery and learning. The modern discovery platform lets users access encyclopedia entries in 300 different languages and makes web-based data more interactive than ever before.

In addition to giving users access to Wikipedia's 36 million plus encyclopedia entries, the new Wikipedia iOS app highlights inspirational images of the day, spotlights top searches and trending topics along with giving users access to nearby articles that are handpicked based on location and relevance.

Additionally, this contemporary platform also encourages customization and makes searching for any topic an easy feat for all -- whether doing research for an upcoming work project or debating an interesting topic with friends.
