WikiNodes, a visual Wikipedia browser for the iPad

WikiNodes is a visual browser for Wikipedia on the iPad. Based on the SpicyNodes information mapping technology, the app displays articles as nodes that you can touch, drag, and spin around. The design challenge was to create an user interface (UI) that will allow users to explore Wikipedia content through the relations between articles and between different sections within an article, making information easier to assimilate, in a more engaging manner. The application maintains an unique visual style while hinting at the association with Wikipedia through the application icon.
