“Wikipedia has to be everywhere, and Adobe PhoneGap helps us get it there,” says Tomasz Finc, director of mobile and special projects at Wikimedia. “Within its first three weeks of release, the app became the number one search result for Wikipedia in the Android marketplace, and now has more than 3.6 million total user installs and 5.3 million active device installs (as of Sept 2012). As we push our products out to multiple mobile platforms, the PhoneGap development process becomes easier and easier. If we’re spending less and less time on each platform then we’re doing something right.”
