Update killed the app 1/5
By En svensk hockeyspelare
Last update just made this app absolutely useless. Visit the website via Safari.
I am a fan of Wikipedia and I love this app. It is pretty much user friendly and menus and settings are well organized. So I definitely recommend it to users
S. L. O. W. 2/5
This is the slowest-starting app on my iPhone. And it's not nearly as nice as the Android version.
Won't open and drains battery 2/5
After the new update, the app won't open now. Also, it drained my battery while I was waiting for it to open. It was at 79%, after a few minutes, it dropped my battery to 72%.
Doesn't Open 1/5
Will not open with new update. Basically useless now
This new update is incredibly slow
Pictures cut off 2/5
By Such and duch
I often open the app, especially when opened from safari, and the cover picture for the Wikipedia page I'm looking at is cut off. Can't see head, only torso and legs, can only see half if face and so on. Example : open the W app page for Elijah (the guy in the Bible). Would love to know what he looked like but oh well. Very annoying. Also back button brings up odd things.
Fix crashes! Useless 1/5
Works fine until you get enough articles saved and in your history. After about a month, it must get overflooded or something, because then it starts crashing every time and you have to redownload the app. This causes you to lose EVERYTHING on the articles saved and history, despite having an account login function. Tried emailing this to tech support. No reply in over a month. Completely useless app.
Study Guide 5/5
It's great app.. it has all the impormation I need to know. Such as world history in such...I really like it...

This is like seriously beautiful, 6/5. Keep it up, wikipeople!
Visual mapping 5/5
Finally Wikipedia is making a cool product. Thank you!
Please offer a donation option in your app
Please build article mapping system that shows connections with other topics.
Adequate but not great 3/5
Provides an acceptable interface to Wikipedia. However it is rather slow especially when setting up, though this is much better than the previous version. Needs tabs, or at the very least, browsing forward. Would prefer starting on the page of the day rather than explore page. Use this app a lot so it can't be all bad.
Just wanted a lot of Apple users to see me 5/5
And it has been working like a CHARM
I am Hashtagga I will be hash tagging almost if not everything in the entire world. Why, the Great Pyramids will have a Giant Hashtag # symbol on each side of all 3 pyramids before I'm dead!
Best Info App 5/5
By Brian A. Huff
Keep up the great work 🖖
Wikipedia Anomaly 2/5
The app freezes occasionally on iOS 10; no apparent reason!
Good functionality, lacks any leisure usability 3/5
I agree with the reviewer below me: tabbed browsing is a great idea.
Next to this, I'd probably find myself using this app more if there were curated Wikipedia pages based on interests. IE "history", "fine art", "makeup", "baseball" etc. Doesn't have to be curated actually. Maybe just develop an algorithm that brings up a random page, but within that category.
Could be a really fun app, with such a wealth of information to present... however it's purely functional as it is now. You don't discover things, you search for them.
Back to basics to the point of Stone Age 1/5
This app allows me to use Wikipedia in a stripped down to basics mode. Why would I waste additional memory for something less??? If anything else, the app should provide more options (such as accessing the talk tab). And worse, when I tried to access the desktop mode from safari, it stupidly transferred me to the app. I just deleted the app, and my I can finally access to Wikipedia desktop mode. Good riddance!
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

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.
By يحيى احمد
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
