Welcome to the Wikipedia Beta for Android! We’re excited to offer a major update to the Wikipedia Android app for beta testing before our full market release.

What’s new in this app:

* A major design update (we went native!)
* Editing – help improve Wikipedia articles from your phone!
* Everything is faster, whether you’re searching, browsing, or settling a bar bet
* Table of contents to help you navigate long article and get to the information you need
* Wikipedia Zero support – data charges waived for participating mobile operators (Wikipedia as always is of course freely licensed)

Additional features:

* Search any language Wikipedia
* Bookmark pages
* Random article
* Recent browsing history

You can install Wikipedia Beta alongside your current version of Wikipedia for Android, so you can test our new features before they go live for all Wikipedia for Android users. Your feedback will help us fix bugs and decide what features to focus on next.

Please help us improve this app by leaving feedback here or sending a note to our mailing list,

Recently changed in this version

- New experimental feature: instead of showing three "read more" suggestions at the bottom of each article, we show a single "read next" suggestion with a full-width image of the suggested article, similar to the lead image at the top. This feature will be shown to half of our users (chosen at random), in order to gauge user engagement versus the old feature.
- Fixed crashing bug when highlighting text in certain versions of Android.

    Saved pages, should be sorted, by date and time, the saved image contents should be in right side menu. I love this app but just these troubles for me with it,...
