I remember when my parents got a encyclopedia set. It was volumes and volumes of the most interesting things imaginable. If I needed to look something up for school, I would often end-up getting sidetracked reading about something else. Sometimes I would even randomly crack open a volume and just start browsing, looking for something that caught my eye (channel surfing?). I never walked away from the encyclopedia bookshelf without knowing more about the world than before picking up one of those large, black bound books. Now with online tools like Wikipedia, that set of Encyclopedia Britannica holds but only a fraction of the amount of data in comparison.
So how do you even consider browsing Wikipedia for fun?
There’s an app for that:
That’s a good name, don’t you think?
This may be the most curious 99 cents you’ll ever spend on an iOS app.
“Endless is a simple way to discover the world.
It looks up sources such as Wikipedia, and sends you articles you rarely hear about. Some are hand-picked, some random but all of them — totally amazing.
– Great articles, ordered by random. Just swipe to see a new one.
– Clear and distraction free typography.
– Full-screen images for the visually curious.”
Let the fun begin. 😀
