Description

Kiwix enables you to have the whole of Wikipedia (and many other web sites) available wherever you go! On a boat, in the middle of nowhere, or when data charges are too high, Kiwix gives you access to the whole human knowledge for free. You don't need Internet, everything is stored on your mobile device!

Download the Kiwix program from the iTunes App Store then download the ZIM data files which contain the content. You can download these files directly using the Kiwix App on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch - but this might take a long time, may incur expensive charges for the download, and is liable to errors because some files are rather large.

A faster and more reliable method is to use a computer to download the small torrent file for the large non-indexed ZIM file you want (not the pre-indexed package for Windows) from http://www.kiwix.org/wiki/Content_in_all_languages, then use a bit-torrent client (such a qTorrent) to download the actual ZIM data file to your computer. You can then transfer the ZIM file to your iOS device using iTunes File Sharing.

What’s New

Version 1.15.6

- prevent app from crashing when searching zim files with no full text index

Great App, But It Has One Major Issue

I’m loving that I have a portable encyclopedia and information resource whenever I cannot get internet, but I have noticed that whenever I play a video that I cannot fullscreen it. I also can’t move to a specific part in the video, I have to replay it all the way from the start to get back where I wanted. This is a terrific app, but this is the only major thing keeping me from fully enjoying it.

Great app, although only 1 thing.

Personally, I think this is a great app, although because there are so many genres and articles on them, it doesnt cover all of them. I’m interested in one genre, but it isn’t contained in the app. And, personally, I would love a feature in which you could download specific articles, but sadly that doesnt exist.

Super handy, clean and stable

I do quite a bit of international travel, and even with a decent data plan, access to the internet is often not cheap, convenient, or even possible. So I love having a big chunk of Wikipedia and Wiktionary stored offline for those times when I just NEED to know something and Google and online Wikipedia are not available. This does the trick with a clean design and stable performance on my 128 GB iPad.
