Ratings and Reviews
The web of our connections
Although, a infrequent nexus may be a bit contrived, the visual stimulation which one enjoys is the crux. Reading in landscape is so very satisfying.
The app allows a small window/pop up to open on a long press. At that point you can do a quick read or, open the linked page. Wonderful addition. Especially useful on a “disambiguation” page for a quick but informative peek at an article.
Overall, WikiLinks is the reference app of choice. Well done.
Fantastic, but one annoying bug
Update: Please fix this bug described below! We paid money for this good app and it needs to be updated.
I love the app and use it everyday. One issue that occurs regularly is that after browsing several articles, the app will suddenly fail to load content. It will just show a small animation and a blank page, as if there is no internet connection. Sometimes when it does this, the text of the article will load, but not the images. Once the app begins this behavior, any further navigation to other articles will not work. The only fix is to force-close the app and reload it. Then it works fine again for another 5 or 10 articles until the bug repeats itself.
Update: this issue is present in both my IPad Pro 9.7 and my iPad 3. It is reproducible 100% of the time. Please fix this if possible.
Great for visual referencing!
An absolutely great visual interface to Wikipedia. Makes doing research so much easier. The only thing missing, that keeps me from giving five stars, is the ability to create and manage bookmarks in folders. (I happen to have more than 150 so far.) Being able to search Wikipedia using “visual” bookmarks would be even better!
It would be great if I could use the new iOS Shortcuts app to create shortcut where I could send queries to WikiLinks (ability for Wikilinks to open to the result after being passed information from the clipboard, for example.)
