Wikipedia is not relenting on its mobile app and has been steadily rolling out updates to further improve its users’ mobile experience.

The online encyclopedia unveiled a brand new iOS app which is focused on improvements to the visual design, better search, and additional features that allow you share facts and images with friends on social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and elsewhere.

The new app has also been improved to make accessing its content easier and much easier than before, considering the mobile users’ limited time and the size of their mobile phone screens. The app also sports a cleaner, more efficient design with a short descriptor of the topic at the top of the screen that makes it possible to get answers within seconds.

The apps search functionality has also been given a huge boost with a higher contrast search bar and support to show your recent searches.

Once within the app, Wikipedia has also made subtle designs to keep you there so you  can keep  exploring topics and reading more.

The entire idea behind the new app is to make Wikipedia much more fun and social rather than just a tool.
