Sophiestication Software has released a major update to Articles, its wikipedia browsing app for iOS devices. Articles 2.0 for the iPhone and iPod touch adds a number of new features including AirPrint support and the ability to search for text within the current article and mark articles for later reading. The update also makes a number of improvements to article layouts and typography and enhances the layout for info sheets and Wikipedia tables. The light box display can now also display image captions and animated GIFs and tap-and-hold gestures can be used with image previews to copy images to the camera roll or clipboard or open links in Safari. Articles 2.0 also adds automatic text hyphenation on devices using iOS 4.2 or later and provides external URL schemes for opening Articles from other iOS applications. A number of additional fixes and improvements have also been made in the latest update. Articles 2.0 requires an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 4.0 or later and is available from the App Store for $1 for a limited time. An iPad version is available separately but has not yet been updated to 2.0.
