Wikipedia + iPhone

Does anyone NOT want to write a toy iPhone web application? It was pretty much the first thing I wanted to do with my new phone. I messed around with some cool JavaScript gizmos, played with the resize-on-rotate thing, and…time passed.

Today I was looking at Wikipedia and came across some information on alternate ways of getting information from their database (q.v.). In particular, I was intrigued by the feature whereby you can get a list of a given Wikipedia page’s outbound links. A couple of hours later, I’ve got a crude little demo that lists a topic’s related links in pairs: the first links to a similar page with a list of links for that┬átopic; the second links to the actual Wikipedia page. If you have an iPhone, try it out!
