I got an invitation from my mother to my first reading of Wikipedia on my phone.
I was intrigued by the site’s ability to show me things I already knew and then explain things I didn’t, as well as the fact that there’s no need to download and install software to access Wikipedia.
I didn, though, need to buy a separate subscription to the service.
I had to go to the website first.
I spent $20 and downloaded a free trial, and it was a lot to handle.
There was no interface, no menus, and no “Learn more” or “Search” buttons.
Wikipedia was as simple as clicking on a link and then reading a paragraph.
That was fine for me, but not for others.
I tried to read the Wikipedia article on my smartphone with the iPhone’s native browser.
I used Safari.
I could just click on the link to read it on my iPhone, but I couldn’t navigate through the page with my fingers.
I wanted to click on some text to read.
That’s where I got confused.
Wikipedia didn’t have a navigation bar.
I couldn-I just went back to reading Wikipedia with the app on my iOS device.
There were no icons, just a navigation menu, but there was no way to find a specific section.
Wikipedia’s page for “How to Read Wikipedia” was confusingly large.
My navigation menu would always be filled with multiple, redundant, and sometimes irrelevant links.
When I clicked on a relevant link, I got a menu with all the pages I could find there.
But the Wikipedia navigation menu on my iPad just looked like a hamburger menu.
The navigation bar on my Android device wasn’t quite as obvious.
When you hover over a section in a Wikipedia page, you’d get a list of tabs, and when you clicked on an item, you would see the corresponding section.
The same thing happened with my iPhone’s navigation bar, with tabs, but with no way of finding the relevant page.
The Google search app I used on my tablet also didn’t seem to have the navigation menu for Wikipedia, either.
I went back and forth to the app’s search function, but it was so sluggish I couldn.
When Google announced the new version of the Google search on iOS, they told me I’d have to purchase the free trial.
I did, and I’m happy to report that it’s not worth it.
In the beginning, I didn.
I downloaded Wikipedia on an iPad and used it while on my lunch break, and then when I woke up I was hooked.
I love how much more Google has made the app for iOS.
The app has been revamped, with the help of some pretty nifty new features.
You can now search in your search results, even if you don’t want to.
The search box now shows you the full text of a page, rather than just its title and a list with related links.
You get the full Google results on the home screen.
I’ve never found it to be too confusing, but if you have a search for something and want to sort through the results, the navigation bar will show you a list.
But when you start browsing through a Wikipedia article, you get a navigation box with only the relevant pages, no content.
There are no navigation links.
And that’s fine if you’re on an iPhone, because Wikipedia is a really simple app.
I can’t imagine anyone reading Wikipedia on their phone, and that’s not a good thing.
But I can imagine a person using Wikipedia on a computer and looking up information, and not having any idea where the information is coming from.
I’m not the first person to be confused by the navigation bars on Wikipedia.
When my iPhone 4 came out, I tried searching for something on Wikipedia, but the results didn’t show up on my screen.
That prompted me to download Wikipedia and try to understand it.
I learned that Wikipedia is about “things that are not people,” and that people can be very complicated, and the Wikipedia articles are a great place to start.
Wikipedia is really simple to use, but a little difficult to understand.
I like the way the app makes it easy to navigate.
I also like how Wikipedia has made it easier to read articles, too.
The Wikipedia navigation bar works well, and a navigation link lets you navigate through articles that appear in the app.
But if you find yourself looking at the navigation button in the article you want to read, you’ll get a menu instead.
The menu lets you jump to the specific page you’re looking for, but you can’t move your mouse or tap on the “Home” button.
If you’re reading Wikipedia, you don.
You have to use your phone to scroll through articles.
I wish Wikipedia made the navigation buttons on iOS the same way it made them for Android, but that’s just the way it is.
If Wikipedia had made the buttons for iOS and Android the same, I’d be a happy user.
