"Wikipedia is free on the web, right? Why spend even a couple bucks to wrap it in an app. The answer is interface. You can do far more, far more easily, with a native app than you can do with a web page." –Rene Ritchie, iMore

Great app but
I like this app a lot but i would like to be able to adjust the fonts and color palette. While its well presented and readable the sepia color scheme looks out of date.
But it needs time stamps on history entries, but I doubt that will happen as it hasn't been update in years and most likely won't ever be.
Has not been updated in years!
The app still works but the UI is very dated. Where is the update? It has not been updated since 2013!
