The best offline wikipedia program

I have tried 3 other wikipedia programs and find this one to be by far the best, mainly because one can search the full text, and not just the article headings - other programs make it often difficult to find information on a particular topic if you do not know the exact heading of the article you seek. Visually, the display of articles is very readable and sensible (though not as colorful and elegant as some other programs), equations are mostly correctly displayed and some tables (though not all) are included. For offline wikipedia access this one is simply the best.

Great app--if you're patient enough to download it.

Pros:
The app works as advertised. Allows quick offline searches and provides search results for both titles and main text. Plus, it's more affordable than many other offline Wikipedia apps. The app itself *would* be a 5-star app - however...

Cons:
SLOW download! Whoever they have hosting their data files has a *terrible* transfer speed. The 5.2GB data file for this app took 36 (THIRTY-SIX!) hours to download!!! Plus, you need to leave your device on with the app open during the entire download - so only buy it if you're willing to leave your device plugged in and unused for 1~2 days.

Best but wish for more!

It's the best offline wikipedia app ever! However I have two complaints! 1) the app has problem with landscape lock mode! If you lock screen rotation in iPad and while the app is in use the device goes to sleep after turning on screen the app may crash or rotate itself to portrait mode 2) I wish I was given the chance to cache pictures! One more thing at the time I'm writing this support site is down!
