Customer Reviews

Excellent

Wikipanion is one of the original Wikipedia apps that has withstood the test of time without being abandoned by its developer. To the contrary, it's improved with age and contains more functionality than the official app. An added bonus is it's ability to act as a front-end for other wikis as well.

Nearly 10 years of superb functionality

Been using this app since I had my first iPod touch back around 2008 or 2009, and it has been consistently clean, intuitive, and perfectly functional. I've never had a single complaint. This app has stood the test of time and is a mainstay on my device.

Programming is 5 years behind

Still no simple sliding animation when swiping forward and backward through pages. Apple introduced this feature in iOS 4 I think it was? It's too hard to navigate by swiping without this simple feature. And why does my review keep getting deleted? Stop censoring me. Garbage app.
