Wikiamo is an intuitive, Safari-like Wikipedia viewer for your iPhone and iPod Touch. It shows articles on Wikipedia with custom formatting, so you can read it comfortably.
The good points of this application are:
・Page cache. It allows you to read articles offline.
・Multilingual incremental search.
・Table of contents.
・Links to the other languages.
Check the system settings application on your home screen, you will see some options of Wikiamo.
・Shake to show a random page.
・Permanent page cache.
・Show search dialog on launch.
・Clear page cache on the next launch.
Page cache is alive in a week by default. If you enable the permanent cache option, it will never be cleared.
For developers, you can launch Wikiamo from your application by calling openURL with wikiamo://.

What's New in Version 1.24
・Fix bug where previous content is not restored on launch.
I have been using this app for longer than I can remember. It is the first thing I go to when I seek to expand my knowledge on a subject. I too was frustrated at times by the "blank screen bug." I'm glad that this issue was resolved with the recent update. Many thanks to the developer! Even with the bug I would've given this app 5 stars as its a solid app. Worth a download.
One of my favorite apps
I've been using Wikiamo for as long as I can remember, and I can honestly say that it's probably the most useful app on my phone. It does occasionally run into some issues (for example, the table of contents feature recently stopped working), but all and all, it is one of the best apps on my phone and I would recommend it to anyone.
Good alternative to Wikipanion; I like the larger font size while maintaining the proper article margins when in portrait/landscape modes. Wish had settings menu for more options like further font size adjustment, etc., and hidden menu bar when in landscape mode.
