  • Opening Intro -

    In case you are not aware, Wikipedia has an app that works offline.

    This is the major advantage it has over other research platforms.

-------------------------------------

You must have heard about Wikipedia, but what you probably don’t know is that it is getting better and better for research purposes. Here are some of the reasons you should consider Wikipedia and the accompanying app first before others.

Wikipedia works offline

In case you are not aware, Wikipedia has an app that works offline. This is the major advantage it has over other research platforms. Being able to work offline makes it your best bet. With this app, you don’t have to use your data. It is needless to remind you how much data costs. But with Wikipedia offline app, you don’t need internet to access all its resources. So, the app saves you a lot of money.

It helps to locate places

Contrary to your belief, the app is not only an academic resource. It also helps to locate places. In case you hit a new city or State and you need to get to the nearest gym, you only need to consult your Wikipedia app.

Or you arrive in a new city very late and you just need to get some food and hit the bed; your Wikipedia app will help you locate the nearest eatery around and also locate the nearest guest house or bed & breakfast in the vicinity.

It is cool in low-internet areas

For some reason, you may find yourself in areas with little or no internet connection. That is not a problem for the Wikipedia offline app.

An app that does not even need internet to function, will low-internet connection affect it? It is definitely a big no. That means as a student, if you have the app on your phone, you can study anywhere and anytime with or without internet connection. This should be your best buddy, especially when your examinations are around the corner.

It works in airplane mode

As a student, you don’t have to spend all your flight time on only music, games, and videos. You can also study too because switching your phone to airplane mode does not stop the app from working.

Imagine a situation where you have to fly back to school for a test or an examination and you still have much to study. It will be a bad idea to waste all your in-flight hours.

This is where your Wikipedia app comes in. You can utilize those hours by studying on-air even while your phone is in airplane mode. Remember, as a student, when examinations are approaching, every hour of study counts.

Easy to download

It is very easy to download and most importantly, it is easy to use. You will have no problem navigating through it.

It is multilingual

The app is available in several languages so non-English speaking students can also make use of it. You can get French, Swedish, and Spanish versions, just to mention a few.

In conclusion, the Wikipedia offline app is a great academic resource for college students and non-students.

Now that you know more about the Wikipedia offline app, why not share the information on Facebook with your peeps? You will not only get likes for it, you will also get more followers and friend requests since they will be expecting more informative posts from you.
