Wikipedia app reviews

  • Possibly THE BEST SITE on the entire Web 5/5

    By Scott4082
    Wikipedia is probably the best site on the entire World Wide Web. The information provided by Wikipedia is always accurate, up to date and easy to use. I have explained to my children, ages 10 and 12, just how much easier they have access to any information on any subject at their fingertips. I explained to them how information was researched and provided when I was in grade school. I think they have a better understanding and appreciation of how, who and why the information they are able to obtain has changed, accessed and obtained since the creation of the word wide web. I would just like to say THANK YOU to all of Wikipedia’s contributors and the time they have invested. It is also such a blessing to be able to trust the information, without doubt, Wikipedia provides.
  • Subtopics should be easier to find... 2/5

    By EggMan1111977
    I do like this app, however, sometimes I want to find a specific factoid about someone or something. With the app, I have to scroll and scroll and scroll in order to find something. With the regular website, you can click on the subtopics (discography, personal life, later years and death, etc.). Maybe I have not discovered how to do this yet on the app, but it is annoying.
  • Really great source of Information 5/5

    By Emmett Nolan 0937
    I feel like this app is really underrated and not enough people are aware of it. I use it to look things up several times every day, and it’s a lot quicker and easier than just going to Google and then going on the Wikipedia website.
  • Phenomenal 5/5

    By Tcobli
    Well-made app, clean and fast look, completely useful. Haven’t run into any bugs or crashes and functions flawlessly
  • Thanks for knowledge 5/5

    By vama89
    Great service and app.
  • Title descriptions?? 4/5

    By Uchiha 312
    The app is good, but why was I able to edit title descriptions/short descriptions one day, and now the option to edit those doesn’t pop up anymore when I click the edit button? That was an awesome feature you should add back!
  • Bear witness: 5/5

    By MisterZhanZhan
    This resource is much overlooked; we have at our fingertips a universe of collective knowledge. Though all other media and internet resources may become corrupted and littered with consumerism, Wikipedia is still intact. Let us keep the ship afloat and sailing.

    By embracingTheBlonde
    Unfortunately, I'm not able to make a financial contribution; I absolutely would if I could. But for now, all I can do is express my heartfelt gratitude & encourage those with $2.75 in their pocket to spare, to donate if they can.
  • Stale review removed 5/5

    By pakdude
    I keep getting emails from Apple saying to update my review as issues I stated in the previous one were not observable. So I deleted that review but I still get emails. So here's a fresh review that basically says nothing. Wikipedia is awesome. Please support them.
  • You should download the app and then donate to the wikimedia foundation 5/5

    By jason098
    If you don’t love Wikipedia, then who are you? What do you know? Do you want to know things? If not, why not? When I was a kid, my teachers warned us that Wikipedia was like the plague. But now I know it is amazing. A guiding light. 🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑🥑
  • Very usable, informative, modern app 5/5

    By sjacob24332
    The Wikipedia app has stepped a great mile in its development, the user interface, massive library of information, and fast performance is top notch and Golden. Outstanding job Wikipedia!
  • Donate 5/5

    By Strategicwargamer
    I was about to donate $30 to help keep this website/app Ad free, but there is no option for Apple Pay. Make it easier for me to donate please or don’t, I don’t care.
  • So Valuable 5/5

    By Techne2
    I constantly refer to you, even if I check 10 information sites, I seem to always end up at the Wikipedia App.
  • Great for exploration! 5/5

    By Harold2Go
    Thanks Wikipedia for making your apps better. I’ve been using it for 3 years and it’s absolutely good. I’ve got the answers to my questions and my curious mind is always into something wondering. More powers and keep up the good work..
  • Good but.. 1/5

    By superstarwars6629
    Can you make it 17 plus for unrestricted web access?
  • Donations 5/5

    By Dauchand lover 1986
    Allow us to donate via ApplePay!!!!!
  • My most favorite app 5/5

    By rickster60
    It’s where I go when I want the facts. I use it many times per day as a research tool.
  • How I learn 5/5

    By Wiki Boi
    Wikipedia has been a part of my life since kindergarten. Either for school work or (more-so) going down the Wiki rabbit hole for hours learning about whatever. The app is easy to use & allowing customization of the home page is good. Very glad I donate to them & it’s a cause worth supporting.
  • Wrong Rating 1/5

    By jmp25+
    This app should not be rated 4+! It can show pictures and information of mature subjects. It actually should be rated 17+.
  • Best app 5/5

    By The gentle atheist.
    My favorite website has an app that makes navigation so much better. A must-have for Wikipedia-lovers!
  • Article Section 3/5

    By Wrestling Fan 1999
    Need to bring back the “In Wrestling” section when it comes back to Pro Wrestlers, it lacks a lot of information.
  • Absolutely incredible 5/5

    By Me3333333339999999999999
    I have no other words, this app is 100X better than searching through safari. Im honestly appalled that it isn't more popular. One of very few apps that i would pay for and its FREE. I would and will recommend to anybody willing to hear me out. (:
  • Better than a bookshelf full of Encyclopedias 5/5

    By Rory1963
    This is the only app/organization that I’ve ever sent money to support their mission and their goals. They provide quality information on a myriad of topics. Just virtually awesome.
  • Really good Wikipedia reader 5/5

    By brysmi
    There are some fantastic Wikipedia apps, yet this is among the best. Simple, clean, functional.
  • No longer useful 1/5

    By Sedalia Muleskinner
    I used to check this app daily to see the latest news. Today is Saturday November 10 yet when I open this app I see Wednesday November 7! And the daily current events shows only 3 stories! What happened to this app? Where are the articles about the recent mass murders in the USA? I usually make a year end donation but not this year. I don’t want to encourage the downhill trend of this once useful app. There seems to be a great emphasis on “trending” articles, aka “what the simpletons are following”. I don’t use Facebook, Twitter and such because I’m not interested in that nonsense.
  • excellent. 5/5

    By دااش
  • Quick facts only works on lowest text size. 3/5

    By RealPersonNotActor
    I have no other problems but this is a big one.
  • sluooowa 1/5

    By Former football fan
    Old version worked well; this version is incredibly slow and locks up almost every time I look something up. Will be replaced with something better eventually 😉
  • Very useful app 5/5

    By vetter123
    I’ve been using Wikipedia for some years for reference on historical chess players and it has helped me enjoy reading about them in a different way.
  • Great features and support 5/5

    By JoeZiehmer
    Wikipedia for iOS makes for a great tool to be used in performing searches for pieces of obscure recording technologies and as well finding information which can be hard to track down. Works cited linking and references make it more professional, stable, and digestible in linking professional articles.
  • Highly informational 5/5

    By james8439
    I continue to find more and more articles on Wikipedia that are so specific, I can’t believe they’re on there. It continues to amaze me.
  • Xs Overheat 4/5

    By MaxHso
    Wikipedia is great, but I notice my iPhone XS is consistently overheated while using the app. Please fix the issue.
  • Where is page preview? 4/5

    By WikiLurker
    Feature available on mobile and desktop, why is missing on iPad? Everything else is amazing.
  • Great app, but one feature missing 4/5

    By Gettinjiggy999
    It’s nice to have a dedicated app for finding things in Wikipedia. The only recommendation I would give is to add an option to completely disable reading history. Maybe I’m weird, but I’m not a fan of any app showing a list of things I’ve looked up without having the option of turning it off. If this feature is added in a future update, I will gladly give this app a fifth star. Everything else about it is great.
  • Amazing 5/5

    By Andrew1243
    A remarkable amount of information of many different topics, but may I make a suggestion? Wikipedia has absolutely no filter for inappropriate articles. I would prefer if an option is added that allows the user to toggle off and on, “Kid’s Mode”. Upon toggling this filter, all inappropriate photos for explanations and articles that children may be interested about, e.g. Naturalists will be censored, or omitted entirely based on how offensive they are. Thank you in advance for reading my suggestions. Perhaps I will make a Wikipedia donation sometime, but as of right now, I lack funds in my account.
  • WiKipedia links are broken 1/5

    By I need to tell you...
    When clicking a link from messages, mail, etc... it use to open in the app, now it just opens to the Wikipedia mobile homepage in Safari. I would much rather use the app.
  • I love Wikipedia 5/5

    By RiftmasterTV
    I love this app
  • Flawless 5/5

    By langiole
    Nothing to complain about. Would love to have the ability to highlight text in articles though.
  • Can’t Live Without it... 5/5

    By Zea145
    First of all, I wanna say Thank you to all those who work at Wikipedia, to those who make almost all of the information in the world available within a single click... Thanks also to those who participate in adding and editing articles and verifying the sources and the information... Wikipedia now is a source that is trusted and can be depended on. If you have any doubts on any information you read you can just go to the source in the bottom of the page and verify it. This app makes it a lot easier to read and save articles and it is very very easy to navigate. The makers of this app thought of everything before publishing it. Amazing work. Thank you again for all this knowledge and I hope you all are rewarded the awards you really deserve. Thanks again!!!!!:)

    By realplayer9
    It’s the best app made so far
  • Needs improvement 3/5

    By AsthaC
    It would be great to see history saved again.
  • good 5/5

    By ahmed5966558578
  • In-App Editing Support 5/5

    By nd opti
    Is there intention to enable in-app editing support? I would love to have better controls and functionality for mobile Wikipedia editing.
  • Perfect And Simple 4/5

    By Juliapinkass
    I like it a lot
  • Great job 5/5

    By Alexbuzzbee
    Wikipedia’s mobile developers did a great job of putting together a nice reader. Substantially better than the mobile site, and lets you keep multiple lists of articles to read later. Just wish the stickers included [Disputed]. :P
  • The app wakes my phone got to the touch 1/5

    By b-lake624
    For so one reason my phone is running extremely hot running the app. I have an iPhone X running 12.0.1.
  • Missing tabs 4/5

    By ben7005
    The android version of this app can have many articles open at once, similar to tabbed web browsing. This vital feature is missing from the iOS app, but otherwise the app is very functional.
  • Wikipedia 5/5

    By iJON26
    Nothing but knowledge !
  • The best scientific info 5/5

    By Fabian3sg
    Whatever you look for it has the best Info. Unbiased. Not preselected nor paid for by some other companies like google etc. I use it as my primary source of info.
