App DescriptionWikiMe is a fun and interesting way to find Wikipedia articles for your
current location or a postal code of your choice. By default WikiMe uses the current location found by your device to search for geotagged Wikipedia articles near you. It's unlike the experience you have when browsing to the Wikipedia website, because of the geotagged articles WikiMe searches for, you get articles related to a location.
You can use a postal code to search for a specific location. This feature is especially interesting when you want to read information about a place
you are going to or where you have been.
You can read articles in these languages:
English, Deutsch, Français, Español, Italiano, Português, Polski, Nederlands, Esperanto, Suomi, Svenska, Norsk, Japanese.
