Wikipedia comes to Android Wear via the Attopedia app


Android Wear smartwatches can already do a lot of things on their own, despite the deceptively small size and form factor. And browsing Wikipedia has just been added to its repertoire thanks to the Attopedia app on the Google Play Store. Available as a free download, Attopedia allows users to browse the largest online encyclopedia using just their wrists, thus making it convenient to get a quick history on a subject or some other topic you’d like to know about.

Fortunately, the app uses the entire display real estate of the smartwatch, giving users as much space as possible to read and scroll through content. It’s a measly 2.9MB in size, which shouldn’t be a lot for the LG G Watch or the Samsung Gear Live, which are the only commercially available Android Wear smartwatches in the market today.

Attopedia is one of the reasons why Android Wear could be on its way to being a widely popular smartwatch OS, which makes use of the versatility of Android to its full potential. We recently came across an app called Wear Hotspot, which allowed Android Wear users to remotely toggle the WiFi tethering feature on their primary Android device.
