[Wiki-offline-reader-l] Kiwix for Android released!

Emmanuel Engelhart-5
Hi,

Wikimedia CH has sponsored a long Kiwix Hackathon (and the WMF two
tablets) and there is the result, the first version of Kiwix (and also
the first ZIM reader) for Android:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.kiwix.kiwixmobile

It’s very easy to use:
* Download the app from the Google Play Store, and launch it;
* Click on the “Open” button, select a ZIM file from the list (from your
device or SD card);
* That’s it! You’re already browsing offline content.

If you don’t already have a ZIM file of Wikipedia, Kiwix leads you to
its online repository so you can download one:
http://kiwix.org/m/

You can also use any of the Books created on Wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Book

Being a mobile version of a feature-rich desktop software, the Android
version is lightweight. It provides access to the most essential
features: opening and reading a ZIM file, search with auto-completion on
article titles, in-page search, random navigation, zoom in & out.

More details in the Wikimedia Blog post:
