This update contains no new features, but it does update the icon
Also sorry to the Americas and New Zealand, but I couldn't really fit you on the icon (because I needed Australia) :(
Ratings and Reviews
Great and epic! But.... minor tweaks
I got an Apple Watch and I was looking for a good web browser/reference that type, but I couldn’t find any so my next option was to look for a Wikipedia type thing of course I ended up with this mini wiki I thought it might be in the trash like all the other watch apps but it’s really great and has a very high-quality UI, it’s easily updated and singing and high-quality information at short notice. It’s really great and I seriously recommend it. But there is room for improvement. When I click the blue arrow at the top, it sometimes doesn’t work. And when new results pop up, that ping sound isn’t really necessary, and it really disturbs people around me. Of course, I could just go into silent mode, but I want hear alerts coming. Maybe an option to turn it off? But other than that, epic app and it is a must have for new Apple Watch users.
Amazing capabilities on the Apple Watchh
I continue to be impressed at the capabilities of Will’s apps on the Apple Watch. MiniWiki is no exception. I never thought it would be useful to have Wikipedia on my watch, but this app changed my mind. It’s very easy to lookup articles and bookmark or download for future reference. What’s really cool though is the Nearby feature that finds articles for things near your current location. This is a super feature for when I travel. Will continues to add to each of his other apps, so I can’t wait to see what he brings to MiniWiki next.
Can’t get past tutorial
Developer responded: Looks like the iPhone app has no functionality. It’s just there to provide the app to the watch. They should update the iPhone portion to alert you to this instead of putting you in a tutorial that you cannot end.
This app is completely unusable. Install the app and once you get to the end of the tutorial, it shows the other apps by this developer. There’s no way to proceed in to the app. You’re stuck on that screen. It says press and hold to open but does nothing.
Developer Response ,
That’s all there is in the iOS app. You continue on your Apple Watch.
Apologies for the confusion. If that was your only problem and the above instructions fixed it, I would really appreciate you adjusting your review, thank you :)
