The Verge: This app reads Wikipedia to teach you about the cities you’re driving through. “If you’re a fellow Wiki-addict who loves obscure local trivia, there’s now an app that’ll read it to you. Developed by Malte Ubl, the tech lead for Google’s AMP project, the app detects a user’s geolocation and matches it with relevant Wikipedia articles. The app then reads the articles out loud, kind of a smart passenger who happens to know everything about the history of the town you’re driving (or walking) through.”
