As of February 5th, 2013, this project is forever discontinued. Have you ever been in a situation that wanted to know what surrounded you?
With What's Near? you can now discover the places that are near using Wikipedia and GeoNames.
This is an application for Android devices that is showing the local Wiki Pages based on your location on the map. It shows wikis on the map and provides a link to wikipedia page. This app needs your location, it will show Wikis in range of 10 km. As you move the wikis will update automatically.
- Loading wikis on map - List of nearby places (Wikis) - Language and radius selection - Location wiki search - Images of the place
App was tested on:
- Samsung Galaxy SII - Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 - Asus EeePad Transformer TF101
