Test Freaks has a great post today with a round-up of all of the encyclopedia apps (and mobile sites) that you can use on your phone.
Sadly, most of the best ones are mobile sites, and there are very few killer encyclopedia apps so far. Their list includes:
- Wikipedia in mobile Safari
- A handful of Wikipedia apps
- Encyclopedia Britannica in mobile Safari
- Encarta Online in mobile Safari
- Worldbook Online in mobile Safari
Seriously, why are more of these being released as full apps? I can appreciate the mobile versions so they can reach a wide variety of devices, but why not build an app as well?
