As an information addict, I look at Wikipedia all the time, so it's only natural that I would have a related app on my phone. There are several Wikipedia-related apps available on the Android Market, and I haven't tried them all, but Wikidroid does just what I need it to do. I get access to all Wikipedia articles, including photos, and I can browse between entries and search as I normally would.
I'm sure some of you are saying that this pick is boring, and I might concede that point. Others might argue there are better Wikipedia apps available and if that's the case I'd like to hear about them. On a more serious note, I know that you can't trust everything that you read on Wikipedia completely, but it's still a great starting point for researching both a new subject and even something on which you might consider yourself an expert. And though this app is essentially a boiled-down version of the Web site, I still use it all the time.
Price: Free, but the Wikidroid Pro version ($1.99) is free of ads.
