Everything’s mobile these days: from the nifty Segway scooters that we dodge in the San Francisco streets to the millions of documents floating around in the cloud. There’s mobile TV, mobile banking, and even mobile fashion.
Today we are happy to announce that Wikia is going mobile, too! In addition to a newly revamped mobile skin, which makes viewing wikis on your phone much cleaner and more enjoyable, we are taking it one step further and introducing customized mobile apps for gamers and music lovers.
The app for gamers is called Wikia Game Guides. It provides instant access to all of the vital information stored within the most popular and biggest wikis on the Wikia Gaming Network. With top level navigation for categories such as Levels, Weapons, and Characters, you can quickly and easily find exactly what you’re looking for.
Currently the Game Guides app includes content from more than 30 gaming wikis, including RuneScape, WoWWiki, Battlefield, FFXIclopedia, Fallout, Call of Duty, Mass Effect, and Dragon Age. If your favorite game is missing from the Game Guides app, let us know and we'll try to work with you to make it happen.
LyricWiki , the world’s most comprehensive database of song lyrics, is also now available as a mobile app. Some of the cool features of this app include:
- Auto-complete for super fast searching
- Discographies for artists, grouped by album
- iTunes Top 9 images on main screen
- Over 1,500,000 songs, with more added every day
- Fully licensed: royalties are paid to publishers
- Highly accurate, with 5 years of review and editing from users
- Available in English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Polish, Finnish, and Czech.
Game Guides is available for iPhone (iOS 4.0 and later) and iPod Touch (3rd Gen or later) and Android phones (2.0 or later); LyricWiki is currently ready for download by Android users, and will be available soon for iPhone users. Both apps require 512 Mb RAM, and the use of wifi or cellular data connections (mobile Internet data rates apply).
Ready to try them out? Visit the Android marketplace or iTunes App store for your FREE download of these two mobile apps:
