Wapedia, wapedia wikipedia
Wapedia was a mobile version of Wikipedia It was started in August 2004 by Florian Amrhein and shut down on 4 November 2013 It was operated by Taptu

Wapedia was originally a Wireless Application Protocol WAP site for use on mobile phones of the very early 2000s The URL for Wapedia was http://wapediamobi which was one of the early examples of a mobi website

Over time HTML interfaces were added with the site generating pages optimised for a variety of mobile devices such as smart phones, PDAs, and tablets

In 2009 dedicated applications for iPhone/iPad/iPod, Android and WebOS were launched

Wapedia offers the most recent version of every article, which is done by using a combination of a proxy-like behavior and a local article database This combination provides both high speed and up-to-date articles and low load and traffic for the Wikipedia servers The copying of data is one way, from Wikipedia to Wapedia, and so Wapedia does not offer the ability to edit pages Edits must be made to the original page on the Wikipedia site, which propagate through to Wapedia over time For many Wapedia users on low-powered mobile devices, this is not an issue since their devices are unsuited to editing significant quantities of text

Standard Wikipedia pages are typically too long for display on these devices, so long pages are divided into smaller chunks to fit into the small displays and the standard side navigation is removed To reduce the bandwidth requirements, images are scaled down to the resolution of the mobile device In addition, Wapedia includes a search engine that is independent from Wikipedia servers Wapedia supports WML and modern XHTML Mobile formats, with an autodetection of the best format for each device Articles are served from an independent article database

Unlike many other mobile Wikipedia solutions, Wapedia injects adverts into the Wikipedia articles, either in the HTML or in the applications
