Articles -The Wikipedia App for iPhone
Optimise Wikipedia for your mobile with Articles -The Wikipedia App for iPhone

While the online encyclopaedia Wikipedia can be accessed from your iPhone using Safari, the layout of the articles means that the site can be difficult to navigate and awkward to read. Even if you use the mobile version of the Wikipedia site, things can be less than ideal.

This is where Article - the Wikipedia App for iPhone can help. Wikipedia articles can be styled so thy are perfectly suited for viewing on an iPhone screen and the app includes a number of handy features that make this unique online reference tool even more useful.

Chapter index control makes it possible to skim through lengthy article quickly while a map feature is available to find articles that are relevant to different places around the world. Wiki searches can be performed from within the app and spelling suggestions are available to help you to home in on what you are looking for.

Text can be resized in the same way as image using a two finger gesture and you have the option of sharing article with others as well as saving images to your camera roll. Recently viewed articles are cached so they can be read in offline mode and frequently used articles can be bookmarked for easy access. Article transforms Wikipedia into the site it should be for iPhone users.
 

Verdict:

Wikipedia the way it should be for iPhone users. If you use the online encyclopaedia, installing Articles is almost essential

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.4

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
