Wikipedia app reviews

  • infojunkie 5/5

    By Nick the User
    This is by far my favorite web source for quick information. It remains to be seen how well this is executed on the iphone.
  • Doesn't allow me to go back 1/5

    By Sreins
    Once in the app - can't go back to prior selection. (Or at least it's not obvious). I have to close app.
  • Really Useful! 5/5

    By Destroyer090902
    Everything I need or want to know is right in front of my fingertips. Amazing app!
  • Wikipedia and me are friends 5/5

    By shahad.nassar.1099
    To be honest, Wikipedia is my best friend and I can't pass a day without it♥️, I really thank the creator of Wikipedia.
  • A library in the human hand. 5/5

    By krsdolbow
    That is how I see Wikipedia. A tool that provides access to free information educating the masses. A gift to the world!
  • Must-have app 5/5

    By LostDweller
    Get smarter every day.
  • Great App 5/5

    By TypographyFan
    I really enjoy using the site directly in an App. Easier than using the phone's browser.
  • Good good not bad 5/5

    By rocker2day
    I cry when I think of how happy this makes me. Hands down the best part about living in now, 2017. that people care to leave information accessible to enlighten anybody willing, feeds curiosity and I think leave a positive effect on people in the long run. If you're a fan of Wikipedia, you'll enjoy the app.
  • Great, as usual! 5/5

    By Auxonin
    Can you update the splash screen to be dark when the settings are set for dark mode? Otherwise it's one of my favorite apps out there. Thank you and the team for your awesome work!
  • Love it 5/5

    By dltcole
    The app in the whole idea of this product is wonderful. Who would believe that he gentleman wants to share information with the world and not proceed in trying to make mountains of money. Thanks very much for the whole product and thanks to all the people that contribute to it.
  • Audio doesn't play 1/5

    By Fls'Zen
    I installed the app hoping that it would be able to play audio files embedded in pages, but, like Safari, it doesn't.
  • Lovely 5/5

    By owvargas
    Fast, handy ... sepia reading theme: amazing
  • Great App 5/5

    By __Geronimo__
    Offline reading, bookmarks, dark mode, dimmed images, Wikipedia articles based on location. Need I say more?
  • Good Stuff. 5/5

    By eghm627
    Use it multiple times daily. A useful update.
  • Simple and clean 5/5

    By VelocityG4
    This app is great. It is a simple and clean setup. Dark mode is a great addition. I just hope this isn't the beginning of feature creep. 🙏
  • Important 5/5

    By Colbolt blue
    One of the best apps for information about the world. Also perfect for biographies of individuals and other cultures. I have always loved history of the world. I was an art major in college with a minor in art history. It's very interesting to find out personal information about the artist.
  • Thanks 4/5

    By mac the light
    Makes research useful More so than even Google
  • Great as a website. But this app does not work. 1/5

    By Excellent714
    The app is worthless because it doesn't work. I was trapped into using the app while on Safari and am just wasting time here waiting and waiting and waiting... and waiting and waiting.....
  • Homepage should be the same as the website. 2/5

    By rwuh89
    When you click on the W button on top of the app, it takes you to a different page with a bunch of irrelevant articles. They should've made the homepage the same as the website.
  • The best 5/5

    By bijoyg
    THE goto app for basic information about everything!
  • 27 percent sol. : Bernie backed off and folded? 5/5

    By MortathaKhaleel
  • Best 4/5

    By akorucuk
  • Flawless, seamless 5/5

    By Morning_Star_42
    Very smooth-functioning app, I've never felt like it was missing a function I need. Wikipedia itself is almost synonymous with "the Internet", do I need to explain what a wealth of knowledge it is? Get this app if you find yourself constantly Googling to just click on the Wikipedia page, saves you time (and you can bookmark articles/pages easily)
  • Worth the price of a PELL grant 5/5

    By 27 percent sol.
    And, the folkish ideation that college even without much brains or ability and no ingenuity but enough funds will get you to the next stage of humanity, and; facts are in Bernie backed off and folded. It doesn't take money or brains or luck and proper grooming (however of all the other blessings grooming is second; next to integrity). You got or you better get it. A lot of courage and the ability to recover from failures and experience at reading for truth in Wikipedia-- or a an apt bldg. with a address like #666 -- that has to help some too.
  • Wikipedia (everything about this App.) 5/5

    By Transamerica Dave
    I absolutely love this app., I Wikipedia almost everything in life and I love the way it's formatted and broken down as to where it's not boring to look at, the way it's divided in specific areas, keep up the great job and keep updating to stay on top and not be beaten.

  • Crash 5/5

    By Hasan FM
    When open a picture during read the app have a crash.
  • Not Too Shabby 4/5

    By theregozigzag
    As a daily Wikipedia visitor, I was thrilled when I realized that the Wikimedia Foundation had finally developed an app for the site. Using the app is virtually the same experience as visiting the site on a laptop/desktop computer and the developers have even added a dock feature to convenience users. My only critique stems from the absence of editor related features such as accessing talk pages and viewing user profiles.
  • Wikipedia = life 5/5

    By Epicness35
    Best app for info. Love this!
  • Scarred For Life 5/5

    By Irish_Guy🇨🇮
    I was flipping through the randomizer, when all of a sudden, it showed a picture of a weenie (male "parts"). At this I time I was eating cookie dough bites, and I immediately lost my appetite. I will never look at those bites the same again. Good app though. I recommend child protection options.
  • Tanks! 5/5

    By Gholomreza
    Tanks for very helpful application
  • Useless place info 1/5

    By nyc.blacksmith
    I live in the largest city in North America, an area where many notable events have occurred. I am sitting next to the actual bronze plaque pictured on a Wikipedia page. When I use the mobile app at this location, the map locates me perfectly but does not identify the monument at all. Switching back to Safari and searching Wikipedia on the web for this same monument retrieves the data whereas the search feature of the mobile app yields no results or suggests unrelated places not terribly nearby. Something is structurally wrong with this version of the app. It's search function is not searching the same database as www.wikipedia. Meanwhile, somehow every single Catholic Church has convenient place markers. Curious app.
  • What's not to like? 5/5

    By Roy Que
    Seriously? Luv the places around me feature❗️
  • Bravo! Great fun and works perfectly 5/5

    By Heartnbklyn
    I really enjoy the Places button and being able to save.
  • Great app for an amazing project 5/5

    By Tom Craven
    Loads faster than mobile web for me, and Wikipedia Zero is a wonderful project.
  • Superb 👏🏼 5/5

    By erikzrekz
    One of the best apps out there. I recommend it to all my friends.
  • Great App, one of my 5 most used apps. 5/5

    By BrantLee777
    It would be even better if we could save article title to a read later list instead of saving the article itself.
  • Functional, easy to use. 5/5

    By rounck34
    The app functions well enough. The text and photos are organized in a readable manner, and navigation is simple to use! Glad they added the "places" option.
  • Excellent 5/5

    By RelentlesCadeance14299
    A must have if you want to bypass the google app or simply a curious person very well designed.
  • Gotta have it 5/5

    By Gene Debs
    It's a mainstay, homepage, and necessary for learning.
  • What More Could You Want? 5/5

    By yourthatguy!
    Feasibly everything you could want in a Wikipedia app. It allows you to save articles for offline reading, and allows you to view it horizontally (portrait mode). On top of this the actually ease of getting around the sight is pretty solid, and it makes even more of a viable must-have. Considering Wikipedia has no ads and has always been ad-free deserves a five stars alone, however I'm giving them a 5 Star review because they've definitely improved the functionality and usability of the app a great deal. Keep up the great work!
  • Because of articles interface... 4/5

    By Aleks1115
    Main article image is now more useless than ever... 1. Low quality: image is almost always low quality because app forces it to be bigger (screen-wide) than it should be. 2. Space: too much space is taken at the beginning of the article, and because of that I need to scroll to see more, especially on 4 inch iPhones. Pointless. 3. Quick facts: quick facts are on the bottom and should be right on the top, because it's the most important part of the article. Solution: Remove top image, same image is in quick facts so why not... add some small version of that image on the right side of the article and text next to it on the left. And after clicking on that image quick facts should pop up with some blurred background 😎 effect like. That would be perfect. + Please add some interesting articles widget like: Who was the first president of the USA, etc. Because now, all these "top read" (by the way widgets should be uppercase) are more like trending and not useful or interesting at all.
  • 5 Stars 5/5

    By TheSpaceman123
    As a wikipedia contributor, I love this app for browsing articles and editing them. However, I believe you should add a Night Mode! In all, this app is AMAZING!
  • Please make built in proxy or vpn for blocked countries 1/5

    By Umut Akparlar
    Hi I love Wikipedia but my country blocked it and i cannot use. Please make a built in bridge/proxy to bypass this censorship.
  • Great, pertinent info! 5/5

    By Free Fro
    It's a must have. Updates daily. They custom feeds to you. I love it.
  • A fancy & well crafted App 5/5

    By Mahmoud.AboDalal
    A well designed App for the encyclopedia.
  • Fantastic! Thank You Wikimedia 5/5

    By Youngms56
    I love this app and read it multiple times a day to get information about a wide range of subjects. It's free of ads and operated by a nonprofit corporation funded by member donations. Give it a try, you'll love it!
  • Broke 1/5

    By Kitten*2017
    Will not let me sign in. I have iPhone 6s Plus.
  • Topic search 1/5

    By H8 Sc@mmers
    Ever time you type a word search in Google and it 'finds it' on Wiki, it opens the Wiki App and you have to RETYPE your search all over again. Then it is not user friendly. Poorly designed.
  • Works very well 5/5

    By ShapelessLeaf
    Clean and convenient, this is definitely better than the mobile version of the website and I have had little to no problems with the app. I use it all the time.
