WikiLinks drops from $6 to nothing – change up your learning

By now almost everyone knows what Wikipedia is. But while there might be a worrying generation growing up citing the crowdsourced encyclopedia in papers, the majority of us use it in a far more sensible way… like solving arguments at the bar.

The point is, Wikipedia has become a huge part of learning and researching about almost anything. It’s no surprise the App Store is packed full of apps that go beyond the website’s own offering, adding new features, or unique ways of exploring the millions of articles on offer.

One of those apps is WikiLinks, which uses a mind-map style approach to track the familiar Wikipedia rabbit hole, making it easier to track your research. That kind of approach comes at a price. Or at least it used to. For the time being, the app has just dropped its $5.99 price tag and gone completely free in Apple’s App Store.

So, if you’re using an iPhone or iPad, we’d recommend giving the app a download, and seeing if it can revolutionize your Wikipedia research.

Note – this pricing is accurate at the time of publishing, but is likely to revert to normal in the next few days. Act fast!
