This weekend I was discussing what Cardinal Mercier achieved that he has a street in Leuven (Belgium) named after him. As with most of these discussions these questions tend to bother me for the rest of the day. At home I would do a quick search but not everyone has a computer in their living room, let alone on the train to Brussels as in this case. Wouldn’t it be nice to have Google in your pocket?
Enter iPodia, an iPhone optimized interface for Wikipedia. The auto-completion search field makes it easy to look for an article or keyword in a longer article. iPodia is available in 10 different languages.
The Dutch language option in the drop-down box forwards to the Portuguese version of iPodia for now, but this will be fixed soon (you can change the language code in the URL as a workaround).
- The Dutch language bug has been fixed as Keishi pointed out. Thanks!
- Powerset released an iPhone optimized Wikipedia search engine . I love the design and usability! Make sure to try out the outline views or in-article search features, it feels very Mac OS X like. It doesn’t have multiple language support like iPodia but I changed my bookmark to Powerset right away.
