Redesigned ‚Wikipedia‘ iOS App Brings 3D Touch, Handoff Support
Wikipedia yesterday released a major update to its iOS app, offering an all-new interface and several new features designed to enhance content discovery.
Wikipedia Mobile 5.0 brings several optimizations to devices running iOS 9, featuring Spotlight Search integration, Handoff support, and 3D Touch enhancements for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 Plus users.
Previous updates to the app added features like offline access and mobile editing, but with the latest version Wikipedia has changed tack by aiming to make navigation simpler and developing an interface that’s more focused on personalization and tailored content.
The Explore feed now populates based on previous interests, local surroundings, and featured articles and images, with support for navigating using a wider range of multi-touch gestures.
3D Touch support has also been extended to the Wikipedia icon, with Quick Actions like „Random article“ and „Nearby articles“ accessible from the home screen.
