Veveo has announced the launch of their own WikiTap application for both the iPhone and T-Mobile G1. Now G1 owners can contribute to Wikipedia anywhere from the vtap TM web video service. WikiTap allows you to quickly search Wikipedia to find multimedia content such as pictures and video.

This is the first application that allows people to not only read articles, but also make immediate multimedia contributions on the go. WikiTap also enhances the Wikipedia experience on the G1 by bringing up relevant videos from vtap’s video index.  You can also rate the relevance of the content for other WikiTap community members.

“WikiTap gives iPhone and Android users a unique way to discover, enjoy, share and contribute to the already amazing amount of knowledge that exists in Wikipedia, all from the convenience of a mobile device,” said Murali Aravamudan , CEO of Veveo. “Built on vtap technology, which delivers over 250 million media search queries per month, the iPhone and Android community now have the ability to easily search through millions of Wikipedia documents, and micro-contribute by uploading videos on any topic, from anywhere, making it an even more powerful knowledgebase for other users.”
