TODO: Support this project by adding ideas and comments to the discussion page and edit this article (See: To-Do List)

Mokopedia intends to make wikipedia accessible on your phone even without being online because all articles will reside bzipped on an SD Card. It is based on the Stylus Demo by Mickey which one can find in openmoko/trunk/src/target/OM-2007/examples/. Please submit more feature ideas!


Feature Ideas

Please feel free to add anything that comes to your mind.

  • show articles depending on location (GPS)
  • list with
    • recently viewed articles (history)
    • most viewed articles
  • search articles "as you type"
  • it will have no pictures - not enough room on any storage media
  • tex forumlas could be generated with a local LaTeX install but such may be too big for the phone
  • all wikipedia versions except the english one will fit on a 4GB SDCard (tested with the second largest wikipedia (german))
  • all articles in one big file and one index file for title searches OR a lot of small gzipped files which get unzipped on the fly
    • the gzipped/bzipped version will only take less then a gigabyte and this way even the english wikipedia should fit on a little microsd card
    • can anyone confirm if SDHC cards are working with the neo? if not we are capped to 2GB
  • new wikipedia versions can be obtained from here [1]
  • option for varying the text size
  • settings dialog
    • set articles location
  • forward/back buttons
  • bookmarks
  • support for stripped down wikipedia versions (100MB, 500MB) with only the most viewed articles for users without expensive 4Gig Cards
