Discover by Cooliris: Wikipedia Never Looked This Good
Wikipedia is one of the most popular sites on the Internet, but the sparse design of the service isn’t likely to win awards. On the iPad, on the other hand, we are now seeing a trend towards beautiful apps like Flipboard, which combines design and functionality. With Discover, Cooliris is now launching a free Wikipedia app with a magazine-like interface that allows users to browse and search Wikipedia on the iPad in a whole new way.
This is great and all, but I’m rather disappointed that Cooliris didn’t port their image browsing web app to the iPad. It screams for a touchscreen interface! Argh.
