Ask Your Amiga: Wikipedia Search Tool ("AYA")

The germ of the idea is here in v0.1: A Wikipedia search tool without using a browser. Despite the screenshot on Amitopia, there's not that much information returned - yet. Otherwise, it is an intriguing idea. I thank the authors of this app for their time and for supporting the community.

It requires MUI and the GIF datetype. It includes versions for AROS, OS4, and MorphOS.

I had underestimated this application so much that I did not consider it useful to make a News, then I realized that in the Amiga world such a program is important.
If you look at the screenshot, it was enough for me to write the name of my city to have a lot of information such as inhabitants, geographical position, distance from the sea or the mountain, news from Wikipedia and much more in both text and graphics mode.

The description on the developers website states it is a GUI for Wolfram Alpha?

It is NOT a wikipedia search tool. It searches Wolfram Alpha, which in turn displays _some_ Wikipedia information.

Great app for our Amigas!! You learn things and it is great for kids as well. Why use our PCs for things like that if our Amigas can do it!! Keep it up and make it even better
