iOS App Brings You Locally-Relevant Wikipedia Articles

Lifehacker has a nifty article about an iOS app that brings you locally-relevant Wikipedia information. “You can browse a map—centered on where you are—and see articles related to landmarks all around you. Tap one to read it, or bookmark or share it to read later. It’s ideal if you’re wandering a foreign city, or you’re just curious about what’s interesting in your own neighborhood. It’s not all factual, dry, reference stuff either—the app will show you movies filmed or set in your neighborhood, historic battles that took place nearby, and more.”
