Wikipedia is an indisputable leader in putting together the most extensive online collection of open knowledge in history. With the official Wikipedia app for Android, users have 40 million articles across nearly 300 languages at their fingertips. The app owners assure, “All for free. Forever.” Easy navigation, multilingual support, customized explore feed are just some of the application infrastructure elements, enhancing user convenience.
This year Wikipedia celebrates its 20th anniversary. The resource has grown from being a dubious collaborative project to the world’s largest free online encyclopedia that advocates for open-knowledge policy. The Wikipedia app is excellent to be used as a jumping-off point when looking for, let’s say, some event of historical importance or making a large-scale inquiry.
We advocate for Wikipedia’s vision of knowledge as a service, so we decided to test its official mobile application for Android. Read on to find out about the bugs our QA engineers found.
