Been using this one for a couple of years now The official Wikipedia app could never catch up to this quality app                Best Wikipedia App
Cant access font slider using iphone 5s Wikipanion No matter what I do Still not supported       David F Ortiz
Would be nice to see settings to adjust text and font size to make larger or have the app look to the iPhone text size settings Can you format the text to fit the screen width from left to right when using pinch to zoom             Toms Wikipanion Review
I have used this app for over two years now I have never had any issues with bugs glitches or unexpectedunexplained crashes The informations is easily retrievable and very well organized The user interface is naturally intuitive I strongly recommend this application for any Apple product user                Wonderful functional application
Its not working on my iPhone after last update Some content doesnt load or is delayed The bugs issues are more prominent now than before Keep the previous version as it was working with no trouble       Trouble after 2015 update
FWIW Wikipedia app is a Wikipanion wannabeWikipanion provides fast straightforward access Nothing in the way no stems no seeds that you dont needI cant imagine what the paid version would do for me so Im sticking with the freebie But each time I for the heckuvit look at the Wikipedia app again I remain convinced Wikipanion is the one                Exactly right
Excellent Wikipedia reader                Great
The web site says you can easily reset your history on the iPhone settings page for Wikipanion However there is no such option nor is there an option to do so in the app itself Confused this would go unnoticed          Nice app but cannot clear history on iPhone
Best                Best
The latest version crashes on my iPhone 4S Hope it gets fixed soon    App crashes
But what is that white bar on the top in landscape mode And its still there after so many updates             Great app
Still no simple sliding animation when swiping forward and backward through pages Apple introduced this feature in iOS 4 I think it was Im done I am finally deleting this app Its too hard to navigate by swiping without this simple feature    Programming is 5 years behind
However it loads so slowly now that Ive been using Google instead       Used to be GREAT
If you make a universal app at 3 I will buy full version to show support even though I dont need the features of the plusOne of the best apps in the App Store and probably the oldest I have been using since I got my first iPadGreat design thanks for making it free                Great
One of the simplest most straightforward apps in the App Store Elegant design simple interface intuitive layout cannot recommend more                Gorgeous intuitive app
I recently upgraded to an iPhone 6 and I have to say that this app is quite garbage Now when I go back to a previous page it doesnt go to the same section I was browsing Very inconvenient I just tried searching The Who only to find that this band does not exist Im over it    Better when I had a iphone 4
I had so many articles saved and organized in here And when I got my new phone the backup saved nothing    Lost all my info when I switched to iPhone 6plus
Great on iPhone and I even prefer the iPad interface to using the website on a PC or iPad                Best Wikipedia iOS app
Very easy to use Google search results help immensely with words that are difficult to spell Perfect wiki app                Simply the best wiki client
Fantastic to use and easy to navigate                Great app
This would and used to be an awesome app but all it does is freeze and crash The update arent working    Crash Freeze
Loved this app until they updated it for iOS 8 and now I cant type more than 3 letters into the search bar before it crashes          Keeps crashing
Research app Ive ever used on the iPhone By far the best wiki app Ive used And I think Ive seen about all of em                Best
my old review of this app was one of the only apps that does what it says its gonna do Im changing it to its become garbage theyve completely ripped out all the good assets of this app its simply trash now and the developer should be ashamed of his work no update since Feb Jesus       use to be good
App is okay but that it seems unable to open itself courtesy of a mobile browser link is a VERY significant deficitI absolutely despise visiting the Wikipedia Website instead of viewing the information through my local iPhone appALWAYS first launch the app          Mediocre AppGREAT Idea
Without the Google search feature this app is nearly useless to me I want Google to search for me but Wikipanion to open the wiki page Thats it The default search is incredibly stunted Example If I put in the last names of two boxers who fought each other the default search is probably not going to point to that bout I end up having to go to my browser and searching first to find the exact name of the entry       What happened to the Google search feature
The app used to work great but it has since been really slow to open articles    So slow
Apple should hire this guy XD                New update is awesome
Best Wikipedia app I have found I did use wikiamo but it quit working after trying several others this is the one Im going to keep             Best
This is a great app but sorely needs support for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Right now the magnified screen looks goofy and I use safari instead          Please add support for the iPhone 6 screen
I like this best Ive used Only real complaint is that the icon is not too visible                Best Wikipedia app yet
My most used app                Great
I finally got my iPhone 6 today and this app is no longer usable with my new phonewhich is a bummer because I always liked this app over safari Looks like Im going back to using safari until this gets fixed    Broken by 6
SeriouslyLook this is a solid useful app I use it all the time Dont be babies Im still running iOS 7                1 star reviews over an icon
Fantastic upgrade for iOS 8 So well done A favorite app                Fantastic Upgrade
I use this app all the time and think its one of the best in the store However the icon is an eyesore I had to remove t from the first page of my phone and hide it in a folder somewhere Please please change    Love this app hate the icon
Please add dark or night mode                Great app but can you add night mode
When using the back button or left swipe to go back often skips to the top of the article or a totally different place Irritating       Forgets place on page
So helpful to have Wikipedias whole database on my iPod                Great
New icon still abysmal Go back to the old classy icon       Awful icon
I started using this App on my first generation iPad and I think its THE best way to access Wikipedia from an iDevice Not sure why some people are complaining about it because it still looks beautiful and works perfectly on an iPhone 5S running OS 8 I think its even better than the official Wikipedia App Check it out and send this guy some money                Wonderful
As others have mentioned there seem to be problems with the app that have accumulated over the last several updates For months now searches will return results but individual pages take ages to load quite the accomplishment given that most Wiki pages are nothing but line after line of text Even manually closing the app and reopening it doesnt help After literally being unable to open a single page for 5 minutes Im done with this app    Sluggish performance
This app forgets this basic simple fact    Encyclopedias are alphabetic
Ive been using this App since its inception on the iPhonewhich is a long time Its always worked phenomenally well I upgraded to an iPhone 6 Plus two months ago and it still works fantastically Its without a doubt my go to app for references Terrific job Please keep it up                FANTASTIC
The app is extremely slow to open linked articles The version simply will not Please FIX THIS    SLOW
Then it started freaking out the keyboard would not display when my cursor was in search Also it would stick in landscape mode Used to be able to close it and then re open to make it work Today no go so Ill go to another app    Used to be good
This once was a phenomenal app They seem to not have figured out how to make the swipe back gesture work properly Sometimes it goes back to where you left off and more often it goes back to the start of the last page Incredibly annoying       Used to be a great app
Even better on the iPhone 6 Plus                Great
App gets stuck in landscape out of nowhere on Iphone 5 Works fine on Ipad Air Usually happens after a search Superirritating please addressUpdate after the most recent update now its even worse Now its LOCKED in landscape no matter what whereas before it would only happen at random or when I went into the table of contents for a particular page This has been going on too long Im giving up and finding another Wikipedia app    Constantly gets stuck in landscape
Logged in to redownload the main Wikipedia app but feeling frustrated with its interface or lack thereof I looked through the others Within five minutes of using this app Ive found my immediate goto This thing is so simple anyone can and should use it Navigating pages is either through scroll or the quick guide at the center consoleMy one request would be a night read feature Change the font white and the background black so it doesnt bombard me with white light in dark roomsThis app earns 5 stars for its complete ease of use and for the developer not making something more complicated and unreadable like the main app or other copy cats                Grand in its Simplicity
