App Review: WikiWeb

I like Wikipedia. It’s a good start point when you’re looking for information. The one thing that has always bothered me (other than the potential for mis-information) is the rabbit hole you cannot stop yourself from heading down when you start clicking links within text.

Well, the app Wikiweb changes that. It provides a unique visual map helping you to see where you’ve been – topically speaking, where you can go and how topics are linked.

I’ve only played with it minimally but so far I like it. It’s intuitive and fun and I love how it visualizes the information on Wikipedia At $4.99 the price could be considered high, but I think it could be really interesting for information instruction. I don’t have an iPad to try it on, but I really like how it works on my iPhone.
