Windows 8 Wikipedia app receives its first update with Windows 8.1
wikipedia windows 8.1 appThe official Windows 8 Wikipedia app is one of the best apps I have installed and used and it’s almost always pinned to my start screen. I trust you have reader our extensive review of the Windows 8 Wikipedia app, if not, I recommend you to do it immediately. Wikipedia has undergone a serious update when Microsoft switched to Windows 8.1, but here’s the first update after that.

First of all, the Windows 8.1 update lets you change the size of pinned Wikipedia article tiles on the Start screen and add new dimensions, thus making it look much more vivid and “busy”, while keeping it useful. The now looks better on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 tablets, of course, since it now has support for bigger resolutions, as well.

wikipedia windows 8.1 app updateI might not know this exactly, but I have a feeling some new languages have been added, as well. The HTTP support in Chinese locale has also been added in a recent release version. There have also been reports of some intermittent crashes with the Windows 8 Wikipedia app, so it seems it has been taken care of. As well, the advent of Windows 8.1 brings a new search input with release number nine.

If you have been experiencing issues with backspace in the search box of Wikipedia, not anymore, as a fix has been made available, as well. Let me know, if you have Wikipedia installed on your Windows 8 device, how the app feels after the update.
