Slightly smaller than the Wikipedia-produced app, Wikipedia Lite is an alternative "browser" into Wikipedia. It displays "Today's featured article" and "In the news" links, with a "Search Wikipedia" link at the top of the page.
The official "Wiki Encyclopedia" browser has four links near the top of the page: "Article of the day," "Random Article," "Reading List," and "Newspapers" (which opens a list of 65 American newspaper links). The opening page also offers an ad-free "Upgrade to Wiki OFFLINE," with offline databases available from $3. At the top of the page is the conventional "Search" magnifying glass.
Thus, Wikipedia Lite opens directly into Wikipedia publications, while "Wiki Encyclopedia" is less direct but has the Reading List (which you assemble) and Newspapers links, plus the up-grade option. Beyond these differences, they are the same.

I use wikipedia lite more than I use my browser on my coby mid8042 tablet. Its on the home screen so when I need it (several times a day) I can get answers FAST! Much faster than my browser. A must have for quick reference. Thank you Amazon, I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to find it.
This is a great app for looking up information on nearly any subject you might think is on the main Wikipedia site. It is my opinion that it provides more of a summary of the topic than an extensive description. One may need to go to the full Wikipedia site for further information. However, in most cases, the summary is all that you may need.
There are adequate links included to expand your interest or knowledge of the subject.
It seems lightweight and runs smoothly on my Kindle. The search bar is however in the app rather than on the top so I had to look for the proper search bar for the Wikipedia Lite rather than for the Web. This app has a proper word wrap vice the browser on the Kindle which extends a line off the screen so one has to scroll left and right to read a whole line.
