The day is finally here, Qwiki is now officially released!
Qwiki is my alternative to searching through Wikipedia. It’s a simple app, and it sits in the menu bar of your Mac. From there you can search Wikipedia as usual, and the results appear in a (beautiful may I add) list.
Once you’ve found the article you want to read, then you just need to click on it and it will open it directly inside Qwiki! If you prefer a full desktop browser experience, then you can set Qwiki to always open articles in your default browser. That’s not an issue!
I know people like to share links as well. So along with the native Mac OS Share Sheet, there is also a Copy Link button! This will by default copy the article’s URL, or you can also set Qwiki to output the Markdown or HTML equivalent.
Here’s an example:
[Apple Inc. - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia] (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Inc.)
<a href="https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Inc."> Apple Inc. - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia</a>
It’s my (I’m @chrishannah btw) first ever ”proper” app that I’ve been working on, so I’m really excited to see how people react to it! And hopefully everyone gets a copy of Qwiki and enjoys it!
Buy Qwiki! Qwiki is available solely on the Mac App Store.
Usually the price will be £1.49/$1.99/€1.99 (depending on your location). But to celebrate the launch, I’m offering a 50% off1 discount for the first few days! (7th-10th June). So it will be just £0.79/$0.99/€0.99!
P.S. Download Qwiki!
Well it’s pretty much 50% off, but the price ranges never perfectly match up on the app store. For example 79p is just over half price, so it’s nearly right. ↩
