Really beautiful app and ui, even better than the Original Wikipedia app. Keep up the good work

Has unnecessary flaws

No iCloud sync, really?? Just installed on my new iPad and presto - have to remake all my bookmarks. That really goes against the slick reading flow this app otherwise so beautifully promotes. The kind of stuff that could easily make one go “Oh, never mind I’ll just use Wikipedia in safari then.”

Also “You can toggle dark mode in the device settings”, sorry but that’s just lazy. No I don’t want to search through my device settings every time I need to switch between a darker or lighter interface depending on my surroundings.” Again, something that goes directly against a slick reading flow.

Doesn’t cater to vision impaired, despite dynamic text

Feel angry having spent money on this. It would have been so easy for this design team to add the option of white (or near white) background and black text, or any high contrast option, really (the dark option is even worse in this regard), but they chose not to, probably because they’ve learned the design cliché that black text is ugly (it‘s actually very classy, because it helps people see). The layout is a light green with darkish grey text, and for me, therefore, a headache.

Just another example of how fancy designers see impaired or disabled people as not important enough to cater to. The text must be grey even if it means some people can’t see (without a headache), and there can’t be too many options, because it breaks the whole curated layout concept.

I also tested if it would respect the bold text option in the accessibility settings, and it doesn’t.

Too bad, I was excited about reading Wikipedia in a pretty serif. Just need black text on a white background and that’s an impossible demand, I suppose.
