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.

Great! No table sorting though?

Great job on the app! But would love to see table sorting soon. You can only do it on the desktop site it seems :-(

Immediately impressed

Johntechwriter's Review of Wikipedia

Reviewed on 9/28/18 8:16 PM

As a technical writer I’m constantly researching aspects of the technology products I document. There are informational sites available for specialized subjects, and I know which are the most reliable. But for general interest or biographical topics, I usually fall back on Wikipedia. Considering its content is the product of thousands of volunteer authors, Wikipedia's high standard of article construction, consistent writing style (not too academic, but rather from the “plain English” school), and nearly flawless grammar and exposition — along with its unmatched range of subjects — has made Wikipedia my go-to reference. I prefer the app over the website version because it enables me to fine-tune the formatting of articles, including text size and background tint, and it enables me to archive articles for future reference. Along with its well-crafted articles, Wikipedia's comprehensive bibliographies, complete with active links, add credibility to the articles and make deeper digging about the subject that much easier. That it is essentially free to all (though I am happy to be a donor and hope others will donate, too), and that its content is accessible in many languages, makes Wikipedia one of the web's outstanding resources. Everyone involved with Wikipedia should take great pride in what they have given us.

A rather major problem

There’s a problem while I use wikipedia in Persian. It actually doesn’t show some of linked names and just jumps to the next word, and it has made the app quite useless for me. This problem has come up since the latest update, though.

Literally the most useful education app

If you use Wikipedia at all, then this app is for you. It is so much better than the website in every way.

Previous search history won’t show up anymore when tapping the search bar on the home page. Please fix.

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

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!
