Official Wikipedia app comes to Android

It’s sort of ironic that Wikipedia chose to release its official Wikipedia app on the day it is choosing to “black out” in protest of SOPA and PIPA, but we’re happy it’s here nonetheless.

In addition to being able to view every article in mobile-friendly format, you can save them for offline use later. You can also use your GPS to search for nearby articles (like we saw in Wikitude). You can also share articles through the official Android channels, which is convenient.

Available in multiple languages, the Wikipedia for Android app can be downloaded now from the Android Marketplace.
