My thanks to Raureif for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed to promote V for Wikipedia. V for Wikipedia is an opinionated iOS app with nit-picky typography hailed by no less than Erik Spiekermann as the “best on the small screen yet.” It is a gorgeous app, and it’s amazing to me personally how much better Wikipedia reads when it actually looks good.
V for Wikipedia’s design is more than just typography, though. The map visualization lets you explore nearby places — interesting both for your own neighborhood and anywhere you might travel. You can even find articles on your Apple Watch (which sounds crazy, but works great).
Download V for Wikipedia on the App Store. It’s a great app, well worth a couple of bucks.
