Looking for imagery on your mobile? No need to just randomly search the Web any longer; Wikipedia has just released the official Commons app for iOS and Android. Commons is a free image repository used by Wikipedia and many other projects, and now it's being transported to the smartphone arena. The official Wikimedia Commons app for iOS and Android allows you to quickly and easily upload your photos to Commons. You can also upload multiple files and add categories (Android only so far) and share your uploads through your favorite image sharing sites.

In the future, the entity hopes to "add more features and make it easier to browse and discover all the great content Commons has to offer." Wikipedia is asking folks to download it, take it for a spin, and report back with any bugs or features that they love. Too bad that there's no BlackBerry or Windows Phone version on the horizon, huh?
