Wikipedia app reviews

  • Literally the most useful education app 5/5

    By Gage.Blockhead
    If you use Wikipedia at all, then this app is for you. It is so much better than the website in every way.
  • Bug 4/5

    By Ozogirl
    Previous search history won’t show up anymore when tapping the search bar on the home page. Please fix.
  • Wonderful Resource 4/5

    By Ella in Greek
    Having the Wikipedia app is for me a non-negotiable. I do lots of research all day long, and this is definitely one of my primary venues.
  • It’s ok 4/5

    By deena hearn
    I love this app but there’s one problem. I can’t find everything, I’m trying to find my favorite YouTubers except I can’t
  • Bad app! 1/5

    By BrianDK1
    Constantly freezes up browser is better!!
  • Had to delete app 1/5

    By Ryancwill
    My phone started autolaunching into the Wikipedia app when searching in safari and clicking a Wikipedia link. I searched for hours on how to change this to just view the pages in safari but had zero luck. The only solution seemed to be deleting the app. It’s a shame. I used app on occasion when I knew wanted to view wiki pages. But if searching in safari, I want to remain in safari. And should not have to spend hours trying to figure out how to stay there.
  • Really should only be two stars though 3/5

    By Steve43230
    Are use this app several times a week, and I don’t usually need edit articles. But there are times in which I would like to participate in the talk page for a particular article. This app gives you no access to the talk pages.
  • *Wiki 5/5

    By dont have time4 thz!now
    Thank you all so very helpful to have a true lying useful learning tool
  • Why am I getting French? 4/5

    By kdg20
    I’ve had this app for a long time. I’ve never had any problems with it until lately. I am getting a lot of articles in French. I’ve checked my settings over and over. Is anyone else having this issue?
  • Great! No table sorting though? 4/5

    By glennf14
    Great job on the app! But would love to see table sorting soon. You can only do it on the desktop site it seems :-(
  • Very good 5/5

    By benbrenton
    I love Wikipedia. It is perfect in every way. However, it would be nice if there were WikiQuizzes that could select a matching Wikipedia page, person, & Wikipedian for the person taking the quiz.
  • Immediately impressed 5/5

    By krahslucas
    2 minutes after having downloaded the app and I’m already blown away
  • New update - terrible performance 1/5

    By justeggs19
    I don’t mind the new UI in version 6.0 - it fits in with the iOS 11 aesthetic. But, the performance is a huge downgrade. Scrolling stutters, transitions are choppy, and there are minor UI quirks (when scrolling down, the large header doesn’t shrink into the center like default iOS apps...incorrect behavior). iPhone SE
  • Only One Feature Missing 5/5

    By Nosaj544
    This is a must-have app for people interested in quickly brushing up on random topics. The only feature missing is Slide Forward. Users are able to slide to go Back to the previous article… but once Back, they’re unable to move Forward to the article they came from.
  • 🍾 5/5

    By Logannnnnc
    Can we get more featured articles?
  • Landscape mode has made it unusable 5/5

    By pakdude
    The app doesn't revert to portrait mode any more despite restarting. So it is unusable.
  • Great 5/5

    By penguinREC
    This helps me with reading and other school subject
  • 5.5/5 5/5

    By Anonymous Sci-Fi Fanatic Boy
    Probably the best thing the Internet has done mankind. Except maybe cat videos. I’ve read through a lot of reviews and people are overreacting to minor issues they might have, and I don’t think they realize how important Wikipedia is. It really stinks that more people don’t rate the app; if everyone who used the app rated it, I would be extremely shocked if the average rating was below 4.8/5, and wouldn’t be at all surprised if it was 5.0/5.
  • thanks 5/5

    By Danasalh
    thank you wikipedia🤓👍. i'm kurdish please developing my language. again thank you 😊!.
  • iPad not up to par but still great 4/5

    By WikiLurker
    Bring IPad version up to par. Ex: Mobile and desktop versions show first paragraph description of keyword in subject body when scrolled over or tapped on mobile. On iPad it brings you to page with no option for small explanation. This feature is useful because it adds to the momentum of progressing through an article by giving complementary information without leaving the current subject page.
  • Wikipedia 4/5

    By Aboodi aboodi
    It is good app have very important information How can use it offline???
  • Disappointing compared to Android version 1/5

    By Iwillreviewit
    UPDATE: Lists eventually synced onto my device, but it took FOREVER. Even to save one article takes a while. They need to work on speeding up the saving process. And the tab function is still wanted and has not appeared yet. ORIGINAL: Coming from Android, the iOS version for Wikipedia is beyond disappointing. This app is missing useful functionalities the Android version has. 1) Multiple tabs or pages rather than just one. This increases functionality so much for people (such as myself) who use it to look up multiple things at once. 2) Personal lists under our accounts do not sync and show up. I had multiple article lists and none of them show up this iOS. Which means I have to go and individually find them, making it a big waste of time.
  • bug 5/5

    By rapunzel2
    When I try to remove a Page from saved Folder it returns or comes back how can I remove it permanently
  • Text Size Issue 4/5

    By David1117
    The one issue I have is when you change the text size the space between the lines doesn’t seem to change with it, so when you increase the font size, for example, the paragraphs appear more cluttered and just looks more sloppy and less refined without the proper amount of white space.
  • it has lists 5/5

    By inellipsale
    listen okay this website is cool.. it has listss lists listss you know lists are hard to make and take a really long time but there are lists in this website and these lists omg these lists... a million hard working men put these lists together:$$:/ they are not human $:$$!!!” this is why people say autistic people are geniuses !:):)$: the lists....

  • Print 4/5

    By raulgut18
    I enjoy use this app but missing feature print from Wikipedia apps. I ask you please add print for better support.
  • My history is removed! 1/5

    By NazliNamini
    I adored this app up until a week after updating to the latest version! I logged into my account and saw that all my saved articles and history is removed! I’ve been saving articles and sometimes just relying on my history to do my researches and now all of it is gone because of an update! And Wikipedia is not answering any of my emails!
  • Indispensable for the curious person 5/5

    By Peter Friedman
    Wikipedia is my go to reference in my attempt to understand the world based on evidence.
  • My favorite app 5/5

    By macuchla
    Wikipedia enhances my life more than I can express. I like the outline, it’s form and content. Gratefully yours,
  • Well what was the point of downloading. 1/5

    By cc4353
    I downloaded Wikipedia as soon as I realized there was an app, I used to love just learning new things in school by scrolling through random articles on this site. After so long without using it I wanted to try it out, maybe even eventually contribute. However on trying to make an account, I received a message in app telling me my IP address was blocked for vandalism by a another user. Not only have I never had an account on Wikipedia. This phone is three months old, my router is new, my computer is new. So how would my IP address even be blocked for something? Again, I haven’t used this site in years, simply haven’t had a need to. Much less to vandalize. Seriously? Wikipedia seems to like the image that they are in constant risk of bankruptcy. Maybe if you weren’t banning people before they even stepped foot on your site it wouldn’t be an issue. What a disappointment.
  • Support this app 5/5

    Information and knowledge are power and there is nothing like Wikipedia

  • New to Wikipedia 5/5

    By Runhappy67
    Ian fascinated to learn more using this wonderful site. Thank you
  • Amazing app! 4/5

    By A.M. navy
    The reason I love Wikipedia is because I love information. The app is simple intuitive and beautiful. My favorite feature is the “mini-links” (The ability to go to any highlighted word in a Wikipedia article). There are 2 fixes/add-ons I recommend: 1) so you have a back-page gesture (swipe right from left edge of screen), but you don’t have a gesture to go back to the article you “mini-linked” from. Please add! 2) The search bar should be accessible from anywhere on the explore tab. Even if you’ve swiped down your feed till the end. Thanks for all your efforts to keep information at our fingertips tips. I hope you get more people to read your articles daily. Like 50M. Amen!
  • Great app 5/5

    By Rambo8649
    This is an excellent app, I never have problems. Great source of free information.
  • Badness 1/5

    By Mrgrimmthebam
    I actually donate to Wikipedia every year. No matter, because no matter how many times I ask, they refuse to make this app user friendly. The Android version is better. My personal peeve regarding the iPhone version is that there is no way to disable the pain in the arse "suggestions" Wikipedia pushes to the top of the page when you open the app. As a result, you receive, recommendations based on what you've read, where you live, etc. I'm not saying it's a horrible feature, but users should have the choice to disable these suggestions. Wikipanion is a better app. It is a shame when the developer of a site can't make an app better than a third party. I'm deleting this app and saving my donations.
  • Keeps deleting my saved pages 1/5

    By cuschnei
    Like a lot of people I love finding an interesting topic on Wikipedia and just getting lost clicking link after link reading page after page of something really enticing. I save these pages to come back to later but it keeps clearing my saves and history. Idk if happens during updates or if it’s just a fluke but it’s happened about three times now and it’s incredibly frustrating. Several dozen pages I trusted to be saved just disappeared on me even though I’ve never logged out of my account. The dark light tone option in the app makes it easier to read but until I can be assured this issue is resolved I have to use my web browser to save pages to my favorites instead of trusting the app to hold them for me
  • Can’t open an account 1/5

    By Kingwigg
    Tried to open an account and was blocked by user Mike V. I like using Wikipedia and will continue but I don’t like being not able to open an account

    By Maimonides66
    I have studied religious theologies and philosophies for the last 20+ years and have amassed hundreds of books on the subject, yet I have learned far more information in just weeks from the Wikipedia App. There is “oodles” of Information. It is endless, and very user friendly. It’s like a stand-alone computer data base. Love it!
  • Must-have 5/5

    By tjader416
    Can’t understand why I used to read wiki articles in Safari. You need to get this app if you are even slightly intellectually curious. It’s not a question that Wikipedia is the world’s gold standard for encyclopedic information on EVERYTHING, but if you didn’t know that, well, congrats, now you know. My dad got me a set of World Book encyclopedias when I turned 9. I loved those books but they might as well be fire starters at this point. I wonder if kids in the future will even appreciate how valuable this resource is, because they have never known not being able to briefly survey something instantly... The saddest thing about this app is not a flaw at all; it is that in the reference category Wikipedia is only #34, while the #2 is held by a bleeping bible app. Humanity, we still have a long way to go... My favorite feature: I especially love the language switch button at the bottom.
  • Biased and Censoring Platform 1/5

    By Captainbinkman
    Do yourself a favor and do not cite Wikipedia as a source. Not reliable for factual information. Great if you want one sided opinions on various topics.
  • Excellent 2/5

    By Mark WN
    HAVING A REAL B**** OF A TIME TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET SAFARI TO OPEN THE APP. 😡😡😡. I did it before. But Forgot how I did it. VERY FRUSTRATING This App is the best. A lot easier to use in the long run.'i can't see anything that would warrant immediate or large changes. Improving in it, In My Humble Opinion, is best,
  • Indispensable 5/5

    By Morning_Star_42
    I love Wikipedia and I’ve never noticed a flaw with the mobile app. It’s stable, quick, and has no problem showing graphs and images. Wikipedia basically IS the Internet whenever you need to know something, at least for me anyway lol
