Wikipedia blackout is now over, official app arrives on Android

Wikipedia blackout is now over, official app arrives on Android
Wikipedia was probably the biggest and most drastic protester against SOPA and PIPA, going for a full blackout for a day and helped raise awareness tremendously about the absurd draconian bills, but thankfully the website is back and not only that - an official Wikipedia application has hit the Android Market.

The app is free and offers a clean and simple design. It’s oriented towards the content-consuming user rather than Wikipedia editors as it lacks account login and page edits. Except for that - it allows you to focus on the articles and that’s the main thing about it. 

One nice addition most users have wished for in the reviews, is Google Search integration and hopefully this is coming too in future updates.

Head to the download link to get the application and let us know what you think about it in the comments below.

Did you mean " express" or did you forget to finish typing something? And what did Phone Arena do wrong? How did they censor you? And if you're so upset with them why are you even on this site or bothering to post? Do your parents know you're on their computer? Shouldn't you be in school?
