Ui a bit messy

Zim is great for offline storing, but the ui took a while to figure out. For example, I wanted to delete a file. Since I couldn’t find a delete button, I went into the files app and manually deleted it, but it still didn’t go away. Then after a while, I realized I had to long press tabs and hit library and then long press the file and hit unlink. My sister, who installed it for bulbapedia because she plays emulators offline, deleted it in one second because she couldn’t figure anything out, and then I had to install it and do everything for her.

The entire internet in the palm of your hand

Even though this takes up 50gb for me, it's much worth it. You can read about the history of poptarts, random grammatical rules, or really just anything on the internet, without the internet. I highly recommend Kiwix to anyone with a few dozen gigabytes to store, especially if they don't have a reliable internet connection. I'd also like to add that if it crashes a lot while searching, switch to "Matches" for your search engine, it takes longer but i find it to be more reliable, more accurate, and crash a lot less.

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.
