Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Qwiki will be a whopping 50% off!

So if you're unsure whether you want to try it out, or maybe you like a bit of a discount. Then this is your chance to get Qwiki, and bring Wikipedia to your Menu Bar! (and Touch Bar soon).

Check out the Qwiki website, and you can buy Qwiki on the Mac App Store.

My app Qwiki received it's second update the other day, and I'm really happy with the progress it's making!

Here are the release notes for 1.2:

In the latest update there are things that make Qwiki a bit more of a polished product.

Including things like being able to set Qwiki to launch on startup (Which was a lot harder than expected), a slightly more "lit" icon (Brighter colours, bigger stroke, and a gradient), some extra accessibility support, and also some behind the scenes efficiency work (But we all know you don't care about that).

One More Thing

Qwiki now supports every language Wikipedia does! Just select it in the Preferences window, and you'll be reading articles in whatever language you select. I recommend trying out "Scots", that's pretty funny!

P.S. TouchBar support coming in the next update!

As I said above, I'm working on adding some form of functionality for the TouchBar in the new MacBook Pro's. Mine should arrive soon, so I can fully test that out and ship it to everyone! I also redesigned the website, which you can check out.

For now, you can buy Qwiki on the Mac App Store for £2.99.

I've started working on a new app. It's a Wikipedia search app for Mac, called Qwiki. At the minute it lets you search for an article, and quickly access that page in your browser.

It's only been in development for a few days, so it's nowhere near the end product.

I plan on adding loads more features, such as copying the link (including Markdown style), and the standard share sheet. I think I will also add in an option to view the content of the article directly in the app, but I've got to work out how I want to do that.

But even though it's super early days for Qwiki, I've made the beta open to the public, so that I can get as much feedback as possible.

So if you've got a Mac and it runs OS X 10.10 or higher, then you can test out Qwiki!

You can give feedback through Hockey, or direct to me on Twitter at @chrishannah.
