Wikipedia app reviews

  • 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.
  • Decent 3/5

    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.
  • 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

  • Great 👍🏻 5/5

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

    By Monkeysandcheese

  • 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.
  • Okay 3/5

    By Ice Fire Terry
    It's decent but it keeps crashing a lot
  • Always crashes and not smooth! 1/5

    By Jordan Ayinde
    This app used to be a great way to find information and read a bit. Now, it's barely usable and constantly crashes upon opening the app. Ironically, when the app asks if you'd like to report a crash, it crashes and closes the app abruptly. Fix it ASAP!
  • What happened? 1/5

    By awrc
    Since the last update it's become incredibly slow, crashes, etc. Search is so slow that I can open Safari, go to the Wikipedia site, do the search *there*, find the result and read the article in the browser before the app has even started returning a result. This used to be such a great app, now it's unusable.
  • Great Wiki App 5/5

    By Austin Spraggins
    It is great if you just want to not search for it on Google and just go straight to the point. Nearly flawless app.
  • Crashes every time 1/5

    By ultimatefan100
    Doesn't even open up to the main page before crashing. Very helpful.
  • Okay 2/5

    By Cgc918CGC
    Useful and responsive. Crashes still an issue. Very slow if moving between app and another app. Searches are awful and are slow at best, unresponsive at worst.
  • Superb! 5/5

    By S8889999
    I appreciate having this convenience everyday. Please add a dark theme pls :) :)
  • RIP CPU & Saved 1/5

    By Jakeh016
    No chance of smoothly using with this update. After reinstalling to see if it would help all of my saved articles are gone, yes I have a wiki account.
  • Wikipedia makes the crowd better than the expert 5/5

    By Mendy henig
    Especially in the Hebrew language the Wikipedia is so expended and wise bring quality content to everyone. Thanks to the Jewish brain...
  • Lifesaver 5/5

    By austingriffis
    I love this app and use it on a regular basis. Keep up the good work!
  • Constant crashes 1/5

    By Sparks 624
    Will not load. Initial page opens, then crashes my phone.
  • App is a memory & CPU hog 3/5

    By 📱iPhone user
    I sign into my account, receive a successful login notification, BUT... all my edits show my IP address The FAQ links to an internal developer page that doesn't give end-user support. While editing an article, everything on my phone grinds to a halt. Apparently it is using an inordinately large amount of system resources. I won't use the app until this defect is fixed.
  • Persistent issues 1/5

    By Gooddog15
    Keep getting crashes and lag. This app use to run smoothly, but after the constant unneeded updates, it's almost completely useless.
  • Superb 5/5

    By Freeman Slaughter
    I use this for all of my classes and questions. Quick, easy to use, and definitely worth the cost. No doubt, an invaluable tool.
  • Thanks Wiki Foundation! 5/5

    By Davs
    Love the presentation format, the aesthetics, and the page controls. The language options are great if you're learning other languages, since it allows one to easily move from one language to others on the same subject. Can't wait to see what's next on future updates and wiki app projects (wiktionary app?). Thanks Wiki, and keep up the great work.
  • 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
  • Crashes every time 1/5

    By TBDSpork
    Latest update is terrible. Crashes most times I try run it on wi-fi. Avoid updating to latest version.
  • Terrible update 1/5

    By imabuki
    This app crashes and is very slow now. Why mess with a good thing?
  • Wikipedia continues to amaze me 4/5

    By Mallard06
    In 1 year Wikipedia has gone from laggard to an industry leader and trendsetter in mobile. With features like deep linking, continuity and split screen, Wikipedia maximizes the iOS app experience in a way that few others do. One the few areas that Wikipedia could improve on is management of screen real estate. As opposed to a fixed header, I wish the header and footer disappeared or minimized as you scrolled through an article.
  • Wikipedia is my go to app. to understand the world! 5/5

    By Randall.Baird
    Wikipedia is my first choice to gather general information about any new subject to me. I also use it to "bone up" on subjects that I think I know about. And finally, when I think I know more than any given entry gives about a subject that I know about, I then contribute to the app. The editors are someone's quite tough, but fair.
  • Amazing 5/5

    By Daneilkaplnskshsb
    Best way to find news and other things for school thanks for the great app
  • Simply amazing. 5/5

    By Lil dog 22
    I really like how i can save a article and read it later and all the information that is available! Something our ancestors wished they could have had.
