WikiMonster Coded in 24 Hours; Released Open Source

If you’ve ever hopped on board the Wikipedia train, you know how engrossing Wikipedia can be. Wiki Monster seeks to emulate this aspect on your phone, by displaying a random live tile with information about the article. If the article the information displays is interesting to you, you can tap the tile to see the full article.

The app was coded within a 24 hour period at a Microsoft-sponsored Slovenia WP7 hackathon. The developer of the app has released the code as open source since it was so hastily coded, so if you’re a developer and you’re interested in helping a new app take off, you can check out the code available on the developer’s website.

If you’re interested in checking out the app itself without looking at the code, it’s available on the Windows Marketplace here.
