Recently, Microsoft and Bing released their own Wikipedia app for Windows 8.1 users. Many on this site lamented that there wasn’t a similar app from Microsoft for Windows Phone, even though we have the excellent ‘Wikipedia’ from developer Rudy Huyn. That app is sanctioned by the Wikipedia Foundation, and for all intents and purposes, it’s official.
Version 2.4 was just released to the Store, and it includes one of the features people envied from the Microsoft version: Bing article recommendations.
That’s one of those small changes that brings this app on par with the Microsoft offering, so kudos to Huyn for getting it done so quickly. Likewise, we noticed that if you pin the Search to your Start screen (press and hold on Search in the app), the Tile can now do transparency. Wikipedia received Cortana integration with the 2.3 update last week.
Pick up Wikipedia 2.4 for free here in the Store and let us know if being powered-by-Bing has helped your queries!
