Wikipedia for Android updated with improved tablet UI, Quick Search Bar integration and more

Wikipedia for Android

The official Wikipedia application for Android devices has just received an update to version 1.1. The upgrade brings with it an improved UI for tablet users, which I must admit, does look much better that the first release did on my Asus Transformer TF101. The Quick Search bar has also been implemented throughout the app, making it even easier to dig up those facts in times of need.

Another nice feature has been added, which allows you to open Wikipedia URLs from any Android application using the Wikipedia app — functionality that only seems fitting, right?

If you find an article on Wikipedia that you want to come back to read it at a later time, now you can do so because save-to-SD support also comes to us in version 1.1. As a college student, I’m really fond of this feature.

To round things out, support for Full Text Search and ‘Did you Mean?’ correction support were also thrown into the mix. As you can see, this is a pretty nice update.

Do you already have the Wikipedia app installed? If so, head over to Google Play and get your update on. If not, you can always use the link below for a fresh install. Be sure to let us know what you think of the new features!
