Endless is a simple way to discover the world by bringing you great hand-picked content from Wikipedia.
The Internet truly contains an endless amount of information. Although access to that information is often dictated by a small handful of companies (Google, Facebook, etc.), facts and opinions about the world are out there for people to discover. Endless is an iOS app built by Studio March that provides an easier connection to the massive distributor of information that is Wikipedia. The app sources data and information from that free, open platform. Anyone that’s ever spent a ridiculous amount of time going down the Wikipedia rabbit hole (that is, clicking your way through article after related article on the site), Endless will be an appealing app.
Unlike Wikipedia, however, Endless isn’t free. It costs $1.99 in the iOS app store. What users pay for is essentially a better designed version of Wikipedia with an increased emphasis on pictures. The cost also covers the curation service that Endless offers. It might not be worth the money if you’re comfortable clicking through Wikipedia on your own, but the Endless team brings cool and interesting Wikipedia articles to those that buy the app. Users can swipe through fact after fact, story after story. It’s entertaining to continue discovering new information about the world around us, but the same feat could be accomplished for free with a visit to Wikipedia.
