I’ve used this since getting an iPad 2. It’s the best looking and easy to use Wikipedia app. My only request is that there be a gesture to go back a page (the usual swipe to the right brings up a useful left hand pane).
Numerous issues and seems to no longer be maintained
- Crashes each time you switch from one wiki to another
- Can’t view many images
- Can’t listen to most audio files
- Large pages on other Wikis (e.g. Wookiepedia) don’t load properly, formatting gets messed up, e.g. references / footnotes get squished together
This used to be my go to Wiki app but it appears the developer no longer maintains the app (last update over three months ago) and numerous small bugs have crept in. Will start using the official Wikipedia app for Wikipedia and websites for other Wikis. It’s a shame to lose this once good app.
Great wiki app
I’ve had the iPhone version since my iPhone 3G. When I got my iPad 2 this was one of the very first apps I downloaded. It’s fantastic, ad-free, and continues to get updates. One of my all-time favorite apps on my iPhone and iPad.
