Qwiki is essentially an audio and visual Wikipedia app with a deep database of 3 million topics. Like the scene in “Wall-E” where the captain asks the ship's computer aboard about the planet Earth, Qwiki cycles through bits of data such as images, videos, infographics and narration to quickly inform you on the topic for which you’re searching. You can pause at any point and scroll through the information at your own pace. The app includes options for controlling the recitation speed, and provides suggestions to related topics you might want to learn about next.
