Wikipedia app reviews

  • Wiki 5/5

    By Ehsanmohamadipoor
    It’s awesome Now I know everything 😃
  • Excellent 5/5

    By geopittman
    This app is a wonderful source of information for people and a great public service experience. I am a retired man who has an interest in our political system, future generations and experiences of human behavior. This app is a great educational tool and a excellent source of knowledge.
  • Needs a fwd button 3/5

    By Horseshrink
    Not bad. I liked better the tabbed approach of an older app (no longer maintained.) However, my main beef is the absence of a FWD button. I want to travel both directions through my history.
  • Phenomenal; essential. 5/5

    By orangetwelve
    For years, I hated how the Wikipedia page looked in my browser. Stark white, black text, made to work with legacy browsers. But this app, combined with iOS’s ability to direct a link to a corresponding app, is awesome. Wikipedia links now open in the app. Which has dark mode. And location-based discovery features. Awesome. Someday, it’d be cool if Wikipedia could notify you of nearby entries (based on your choices/preferences, of course).
  • Bias predictions and low intelligence editors 1/5

    By DesertHelo
    Removing esteemed members of the scientific community because they do not fit their slanted view of the world. What happened to Günter Bechly? Your editor “Jo Jo emeritus” and an editor named ‘boy’’ “really?” Removed him from these pages. With a combination of maybe 3 days of scientific endeavors between them. So much for accuracy written here.
  • App 5/5

    By Chicory coffee drinker
    Can't do without this app. I use the app every day.
  • Rating 2/5

    By Gibbs140
    This app should be rated 17+ as it still allows access to the web via external links (and some external links are in fact adult websites).
  • Very great please read this Wikipedia help center 5/5

    By Nightmareisback
    I love it but can you guys do something about Charlemagne article because in political background there's a image of a nude woman in there that has nothing to do with Charlemagne.
  • Wikipedia - iPad 5/5

    By 6stringsor12
  • Rotation!!!!! 1/5

    By Pat the userbug
    Please, for the love of all that is good and holy, fix the bloody rotation delay!
  • Wikipedia good 5/5

    By china msn
    It's really great.
  • Just what I need 5/5

    By Tsember
    This app is convenient, frugal (because with Wikipedia Zero you often don’t pay data charges), and respectful, meaning that, at least in my experience, it has never veered into a programmed “shortcut” that some programmer thought was a cool idea that everyone would love, but that actually interferes with what I was trying to do. In particular, it is very good at letting you retrace your steps.
  • Nice app 5/5

    By Arashatashpour
    Nice app
  • Life makes sense with Wiki 5/5

    By golfgyrl
    Every day I use Wiki. One of the best.
  • Review 5/5

    By Mescalero Scout

  • new version is fabulous, but 3/5

    By supermansaga
    cant find page watchlist after logging in. Mobile editing ability is restricted.
  • Amazing content, one complaint 4/5

    By LoLaMC
    This being the official Wikipedia app it is not surprising that it gives access to the wealth of knowledge Wikipedia is known for. I only have one complaint: why doesn't saved content sync across devices? It could be done either through iCloud or across devices logged in with the same Wikipedia user name (otherwise what is the point of having a user name?). I used to have an app called Wikibot that did just that: saved articles would sync across devices sharing the same iCloud account.
  • Knowledge is Power 5/5

    By MALavallee
    ...the more you know
  • Great app great site 5/5

    By MrRemy
    Wikipedia and the app are great. What a great concept, still glad it's free, thank you for the countless hours of free reading and enlightenment from other avid learners that are also thirsty for knowledge that share what they know!
  • Needs to play media files 3/5

    By Whicky1978
    The format and pictures are nice but it does not play ogg files. I have not tried the vorbis files yet.
  • 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 Smearedqueer
    seidel ?
  • Dhi qer 3/5

    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.
