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

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
