Looks great and works well, but needs text-to-speech support & “read later” functionality. Knowledge is power and some people – like myself – spend a LOT of time reading Wikipedia articles… This powerful application brings the entirety of Wikipedia to your mobile device, optimized for the screens of mobile devices and with powerful functionality (such as the ability to save articles for offline reading). I use this application extensively and it is incredibly easy to use, but I wish this supported text-to-speech, for use in the car… It’d be great to some sort of “read later” functionality.
