    Wikipedia? I'm totally losing my touch, huh? But look, the official app got a material-ish update, and it works better than using a browser, so what's not to like? You can also save pages, switch to a dark theme, resize the font, and read about places and buildings near you. It's pretty sweet, and I've learnt that there's nothing interesting near where I live.
