This app adds the option Show Articles in Map to any app that can shown/send/share a geo location or geo-uri .


It hooks into the android system, asks wikipedia and shows the results in Location Map Viewer
(or any other installed app that understands the format 'kmz').


Location Map Viewer shows a map with bubbles (or article-icons if enabled/available) for every wikipedia article found.


If you click on a bubble you get a popup with a short article description and a button that links to the full article.
