Ratings and Reviews
Very nice app, but can you please update the app so that it can be viewed in split view in the new iOS? thx!
In true Wikipedia style, very authoritative and complete in it's coverage on every subject i've investigated. Plus it allows You keep everything You look up at your fingertips.
Disappointing. After saving a number of pages it periodically crashes and I lose everything. Happened several times. The idea is good but useless if it crashes every so often wiping everything out.
