Official Wikipedia Android App Using PhoneGap

mikejuk (1801200) writes "There has been a Wikipedia iOS app available in the App Store for some time but you can now download an Android version from the Google market. The iOS version was written in Objective C but the Android version uses HTML/JavaScript and it is then wrapped by PhoneGap to look like a native app. This not only made it quick to create but you can look out for custom apps on other major phone platforms very soon. This does seem to be the way of the future."

  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
