Curiosity has just been released in the App Store! Curiosity is a new way to browse Wikipedia based on the literal world around you. The app looks at your current location and then offers up articles about nearby points of interest. I think this would be particularly helpful and informative on vacation. The app also serves popular articles and let’s you save your favorites. It’s a nice way to rediscover Wikipedia.
