Wikipedia app reviews

  • Must have 5/5

    By Xxxxxxxxyyy
    A wonderful app from a wonderful organization
  • I love Wikipedia! 5/5

    By GoddessLinda
    Great for research.
  • I LOVE IT 5/5

    By Bismarck_k
    Opens pages lightning fast, great design and navigation.
  • IP address blocked? 1/5

    By Aidan578284829
    Ok so I wanted to create a wiki account but apparently my IP address is "blocked". The thing is is that I never edited any page so yeah that's retarded
  • Essential app 5/5

    By WC Shepard
    My go to app for facts
  • Grrr 1/5

    By Appl3Holic
    The fact that you people can't be bothered to include a forgotten password link on the sign in page is pathetic. Is having a password protected login to Wikipedia even necessary? JFC. I just got on here again to complain about this and didn't even have to write anything. Wonder why.
  • Search 1/5

    By EmilyJCobb
    Could not get search to work.
  • Great App 5/5

    By Go Seahawks 206!!!!
    What more can i say. I've found some information to be inaccurate, but that was mostly in the early days when I'm not even sure it had an app. I use Wikipedia on a multi-daily basis and find it to be factually correct, in fact it's been many years since I've found a mistake in Wikipedia. It will always be rated highly in my books.
  • Decent 4/5

    By squalamack
    The official app is decent. I wish it had better typography along the lines of V for Wiki. The most fundamental missing feature, I think, is showing nearby locations that have articles on a map instead of just as a list. Also, if I am logged into the app, and into the website on various devices, it would be nice if my history, searches etc would sync between devices and instances. For example if I read an article in the browser, why don't I get recommendations based on that article in the app? An Apple Watch app would be nice, too.
  • Very Solid App 4/5

    By kristinafh
    ✔️User Interface is intuitive ✔️No annoying ads One item that I wish was in place - you can create an account, you can log into your account, but you cannot indicate that you need prompted for your password (i.e. Forget Password?)
  • Wikipedia contents are excellent. But the app is not. 1/5

    By Efogooo
    Cannot synchronize with other iPads or PCs of saved topics. It is not convenient to use. The GUI is not good.
  • Great Encyclopedia App! 5/5

    By Matt, 28 TN
    Remember the ancient days when we thumbed through old encyclopedia pages that became dusty, torn and outdated? Expensive, Heavy Books, Nasty door-to-door encyclopedia salespeople. Now I use Wikipedia instead. Wiki keeps me informed for free. The app is great and will only get better. Made by a great community of knowledgeable folks. Please download and contribute!
  • App's search box doesn't work properly 4/5

    By Amirnia
    The app is good overall, but its search does not work sometimes. Many times! Im sure the problem is not from internet speed. The strange thing is some times it both goves suggestions and my seatch works! It would be great if this issue gets fixed.
  • What ? 3/5

    By Sash alum
    Even if your logged out your saved list will be deleted if you delete app by mistake. That's what happened to me when I was ridding my phone of unused apps
  • Sorting Saved Articles 4/5

    By Nameless TAC
    Needs the ability to sort saved articles into saved folders which the user can also create and categorize.
  • I love Wikipedia 5/5

    By Micronexx
    I love Wikipedia
  • Bloated and slow 3/5

    By Arkweld
    On first release this was a pretty quick app that got to the information quickly. With each update it has seen more feature creep and decreased optimization. This app now takes thirty seconds to boot and page loads are slow and clunky.
  • Indespensible 4/5

    By ClariceDurdan
    Can't live without it. Everyone with a smart phone should have a Wikipedia app and this (official) one is the best I've tried.
  • اليمن 5/5

    By يحيى احمد
  • Needs tabbed browsing 3/5

    By Jingatapingalanadu
    I don't even need to elaborate, do I? C'mon. Tabbed browsing so I can open all the pages I want to look at later when I'm going through an article. Honestly. I'm frankly stunned this isn't an option. Does nobody else end up wanting to read various other articles hyperlinked from whatever article they're reading at the moment? Without losing their place in the original, and being able to look at more than one article at a time?
  • Awesome 5/5

    By Set1364
    Wikipedia is manifestation of the beautiful mind of the digital world!
  • Works as expected 5/5

    By PrEDRiSing
    Works as expected just I wish the create a book was in the app
  • Zero complaints 5/5

    By Strung Out
    Wikipedia is the greatest project of all time in many ways and I have no complaints about this app whatsoever. I am not a power user but I've been on the site since 2004 and I love this app. I'm sure it can be better, so if that's true, go help out!
  • News 1/5

    By Upacreeknopaddle
    Why is your news widget consistently showing me the same news from three weeks ago everyday?! This app has serious updating issues. Not a good thing for an app that is supposed to update constantly!!
  • One star 1/5

    By seabirdman
    One star. Improve it.
  • Should be an "essential" 5/5

    By RoseNebula91
    Had this app since my first iPod touch in 2011. It's been streamlined several times since then, and I've always found it very useful. In my opinion it should be under "essentials" in the App Store.
  • #*# APP BROKEN WITH WI-FI #*# 2/5

    By mischa143
    Painfully slow. Delays of 20 seconds or not loading at all. Interestingly enough this occurs on wifi, not cellular. Skeptical at first but this really grew on me. Much cleaner layout than than a mobile web page. The main page is now readable on a phone with some added things for mobile such as 'articles near me'. Another added advantage of an app is less battery use & data consumption as well. The cache works when you have internet drops. Editing is there as well. The navigation is a tad strange; back only. Give it a whirl & comment!
  • Remove suggestions!!! 2/5

    By Ikki no Phoenix
    This app is becoming another Facebook and Instagram with the annoying stupid suggestions. What an useless feature, gets on the way of the daily content that matters. What a disappointment, stop trying to be like others and be yourself Wikipedia!
  • Love it! 5/5

    By AnnieDaniel
    Great app. A lot of info.
  • Holy wow! has this app changed 5/5

    By thaesino
    All the new features are a huge and welcome surprise. Thank you! Wiki devs.
  • Great 👍🏻 5/5

    By Fat guy ;)
    Thank you for this wonderful application and keep on successful
  • All Human Knowledge 5/5

    By Monkeysandcheese
    In the palm of your hand. A great way to experience Wikipedia. Highly recommended.
  • Sgt.McHugh,23yrLaw Enforcement 5/5

    By Spider wings 05
    News is extremely well designed. Simply stated; I've never seen so Much said, utilizing so few words. Thanks Mac
  • Love It 5/5

    By . Pengiun :)
    All of wikipedia in one app, plus there are so many protective measures that wiki takes to ensure good l correct data.
  • Ok 3/5

    By c1k3
    Doesn't allow user to view article categories (one of the coolest features of Wikipedia) and, for some reason, keeps a history of partially-typed search phrases. Other than that, fine.
  • Finally 5/5

    By gilbertopr13
    Finally the fix for the crashing when opening the app came. 😊
  • Slow and Virtually Unusable 1/5

    By EchoCJB
    This app used to run great and I used it everyday. Now it is super slow to load and it freezes. It used to be convenient and now I have to use the website instead. Unusable in its current form.
  • ¿Where's Captcha? 1/5

    By flick me with your remote
    hello everyone, i recently downloaded the app to make an account to hack into my school, but there is no Captcha. where's captcha tho? #CaptchaWhereYouAt #RIPCaptcha
  • App crashes 1/5

    By Magaman1
    Latest version will not load or loads and then crashes. Just about useless at this point. Please give me back the app that I used to love.
  • Great App for an indispensable resource 5/5

    By snapper-Z
    Dear Wikimedia Foundation: I don't know what I would do without Wikipedia. Excellent. Nearly comprehensive. Highly reliable. And FREEE. You are the information equivalent of fresh air. Thank you.
  • What 3/5

    By Scratch ticket not trye
    Says "people using you IP address have already used 6 accounts which is the maximum." When I only have 5 family members and I know that my family didn't sign up for Wikipedia in the last 24 hours.
  • Great new features 5/5

    By AndJMK
    You don't lose your place anymore when you click on a link and later want to go back to the page once more. At last! Also, displaying relevant articles is a great touch.
  • Was great until last update 3/5

    By Argeebee1
    Needs additional update to fix. I used to use this app all of the time, now, since the last update, when I go to the "search" field, the search field either doesn't appear or there is a very long delay.
  • Hasn't worked in three days 1/5

    By J.ro9
    Constantly crashes and won't even open the home page. Tried continuously for three days now and have not gotten it to work once. Had to use google every time to access the site, hopefully it gets fixed soon, otherwise it's a waste of space.
  • Slow... responsiveness... since... last... update. 1/5

    By Tertius
    Click search... wait 10 seconds... Type first letter... no response... type it again... double entry. If app doesn't crash.
  • Gettin' Buggy Widdit 2/5

    By Shufei
    Wikipedia is, of course, a delight and joy. The summa of human knowledge, it's one of the only redeeming ventures of our demented culture. But lately, since the last update, this app has been hanging, crashing, and generally stalling. I'm using it on an iPad Air, so I doubt it is a lack of processing oomph on my part. Somewhere there is a memory leak or something. Also, since for obvious reasons Wikipedia uses ogg media files, none of the sound nor movie files ever play. FYI, kids; and looks like I'm not the only one. I may go back to using the website only...
  • The latest update jacked it up! 1/5

    By The Best Kind of Guy
    This is one of my favorite apps of all time. Now it's terrible. So slow and laggy that it's not usable. Please fix this asap!
  • Unusuable. Absolute garbage. 1/5

    By gonif
    Slow, unresponsive, and prone to crashing. What happened to the concept of testing a program before releasing it? Wikipedia is hardly the ultimate & professional knowledge source it pretends to be, but it's good for looking up pop culture. This app makes even that impossible.
  • Excellent!!! Thanks! 5/5

    By Gregcheersykes
    After I've logged in and close the app, it doesn't remember me and it makes me re-enter my info (username and password). Make it so one doesn't have to login all the time. Add function to hit top bar (where time is) to scroll fast to the top. Currently pressing there does nothing. Thanks!!!!!
  • Horrible 1/5

    By It'sMePeople
    Why did they need to update this app? It was fine the way it was before. Now it's super laggy and crashes every single time I open it. It's so annoying.
