Loving the WikiNodes iPad app

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

I’m always perusing through new iPad apps to check out UX & design and WikiNodes definitely caught my eye. WikiNodes puts the knowledge of Wikipedia at your fingertips. Articles are displayed as nodes that you can touch, drag and spin around.

 

This has an awesome fluid interface. It’s yet again, an entirely new way of searching & consuming info (if you trust Wikipedia). I did a sample search of NYC Subways and here was the result. The interface presentation of information similar to that of mind mapping, which I love. Nodes link together sections of Wikipedia articles and related topics, making Wikipedia come to life.

When you tap any node, it expands to give you more information.

Or, switch to a full-page view to display articles as pages, then scroll up and down.

Proof everything doesn’t have to be linear in its contextual relevance when you’re researching anything that is of interest to you.
