    This app is a great way to browse the Wikipedia site. It makes searching and navigating big articles easy.

    However, the latest update is missing this animation when you return from the current page to the previous page. The current page would slide away to the right revealing the previous page below it, like the pages are stacked on top of one another. Instead, the current page flickers for a bit and goes back to the last page viewed with no animation at all. Not very pleasing to look at.

    This is THE app anyone should have on their device. I wonder why companies don't preinstall it. Just an idea, though. It'd be really great if you could open up multiple tabs at a time.
