[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - Tamper LLC, a independent iOS company known for their award winning organizer app Morning, today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Curiosity, a beautiful location-aware Wikipedia reader for iPhone. The app surfaces interesting and relevant content to users based on their location, recent events, and hand-curated lists. Curiosity is the best companion to explore the world around you.
"Our first app, Morning, was designed for the daily routine, showing the weather, commuting time, and reminders," said Jeff Dlouhy, Co-Founder of Tamper. "Curiosity is all about learning something new and exploring the world around you. We want people to get out an explore. From wandering a foreign city, to learning the history of your own neighborhood, Curiosity is the best app for those with the itch to discover something new."
The creators of the app wanted the Wikipedia experience to be more than just searching for a specific topic. That's why when the app is launched, it immediately shows context-aware articles. For example, in the Explore tab you can see what movies were filmed nearby, historic battles that took place around you, as well as other curated sections that are constantly being updated and change with location and time.
