Must have 5/5
A wonderful app from a wonderful organization
I love Wikipedia! 5/5
Great for research.
I LOVE IT 5/5
Opens pages lightning fast, great design and navigation.
IP address blocked? 1/5
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
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.
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.
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
✔️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
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Remember the ancient days when we thumbed through old encyclopedia pages that became dusty, torn and outdated?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
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
I love Wikipedia
Bloated and slow 3/5
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.
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.

Needs tabbed browsing 3/5
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?
Wikipedia is manifestation of the beautiful mind of the digital world!
Works as expected 5/5
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!
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
One star. Improve it.
Should be an "essential" 5/5
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
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
Great app. A lot of info.
Holy wow! has this app changed 5/5
All the new features are a huge and welcome surprise.
Thank you! Wiki devs.
Great 👍🏻 5/5

Thank you for this wonderful application and keep on successful
All Human Knowledge 5/5
In the palm of your hand. A great way to experience Wikipedia. Highly recommended.

News is extremely well designed.
Simply stated; I've never seen so
Much said, utilizing so few words.
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.
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 the fix for the crashing when opening the app came. 😊
Slow and Virtually Unusable 1/5
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
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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.
