Editors' Notes

Wikipedia has been answering our big and small questions since its introduction in 2001. What if you only speak Hawaiian? Mai hopohopo! Hauʻoli! (Don’t worry! Be happy!) With information in nearly 300 Wikipedia-supported languages, you’ll be able to find facts in the lingo you like.

I love Wikipedia

And I really enjoy this app. But there’s one bug that has been there for months: when I read an article, click a link that leads me to another Wikipedia article and go back to original article, the font of it changes to a smaller one. This is really annoying since it changes the position where I left off reading on the screen and I always have to scroll up and down to find where I actually left off. Would be great to get it fixed!
