Updated the article with v0.3! There were some AmigaOS 4.x and MorphOS folder mixup. That’s fixed while other changes with this version are purely internal, some little redrawing problems that he got a report from OS4 and some bug fixing I found myself (not cleared buffer, such stuff). This update came only a few minutes after I posted this news.

Finally the author behind muimapparium and Leu which I highly recommend anyone to download found some motivation to release “Ask Your Amiga” which is an advanced Wikipedia searching tool that is so much more for your beloved Amiga operating system.

This is a mighty new tool for your Amiga that demands that your Amiga must be connected to the Internet but it doesn’t require any web browser to be used. Brilliant!

The author behind it writes on his website about Ask Your Amiga that “It’s working nicely, now also can save the image or text, but nothing more… just very basic functionality but even so I like it working rather smooth even on my slower Amiga 68030.”

Ask Your Amiga is a tool that uses the API of Wolfram Alpha. Wolfram Alpha does return answers from Wikipedia but it is much more than just that. It is a Very cool site related to topics such as math, physics, astronomy.

It is a brilliant tool for AmigaOS 3.x, MorphOS, AmigaOS 4.x, and AROS that lets you search Wikipedia without using any web browser. But you need to be on-line to use it. It is available for all Amiga systems with an Internet connection and a GIF Datatype installed with 68020 or higher. There are many GIF datatypes available on Aminet so your AmigaOS system can show images in this application.
