    Best way to browse Wikipedia with the new font options. The dev listened to my feedback and incorporated a new feature.

    Great app. Would be even better if there was an option to search right after launching (to avoid the extra tap in the search box).
  • Fantastic app — Most used of all!

    Gorgeous and efficient version of Wikipedia that I use multiple times a day. Especially useful is the ability to see, instantly, a map of wherever you are in the world with pertinent entries of local physical attractions and historical events. You can also pan the map and get entries from other locations besides the one you inhabit. Just outstanding esthetics and a real joy to use. Most highly recommended!
  • Not for me

    I bought this and have been always a little disappointed. The UI on the "most read" page starts the app off really well.. However, when it comes to the UI of everything else, especially on Dark Mode, is pretty ugly. Brownish-red dark theme, NO sans-serif font, and literally zero customization options outside of light/brown(ugly) modes. It's like the creator made the startup page, then half-assed the rest. Can't even sign into Wikipedia from last I saw, and overall lacking in features in general? I'm genuinely surprised that this app was "best of 2016" (by whose standards? Nobody knows). I'm just going to use the official Wikipedia app, thank you. NEXT.
  • Gorgeous and simple.

    Just what a mobile research app should be.
  • Amazing; some pages slow to load

    This is probably the best Wikipedia app ever created. However, the only downside I can really find to this app is the fact that some pages are slow to load.
  • FEATURE REQUEST!

    I love this app so much but it’s missing one essential thing: Please add a feature to Highlight and Take notes on pages! Withholding my fifth star until then. Thank you!

    Nice app, but I wish I could read a full article on my watch. Even if it’s uncomfortable, it’d be nice to have the feature.
  • Daily usage
