*Important:* You must have access to wireless local area network (WiFi) for downloading databases.
## Most Viewed Articles
Don't waste your precious space on your mobile device for non-relevant articles. Minipedia provides offline access for the most important ones.
Minipedia, with a database of articles much smaller than the entire online Wikipedia, provides intelligent searching based on the popularity of the article.
## Math Formulas and Tables included!
Very few Wiki Readers have the capability of correctly displaying math formulas, nor do they include Wikipedia tables (the images and fact summary in a column on the right edge of a Wikipedia web page). This feature can also be a great time saver, as users can quickly extract the necessary information from the table, rather than reading the article.
Unfortunately, images are not included in minipedia. They simply take up to much space on your device.
## Search as you Type!
Searching for articles is extremely fast. Right when you type the first letter, you will see the first matches!
Search Wikipedia articles the Intelligent Way:
For example, a search for "Mark" on Wikipedia returns "Marketing" as the first item in the drop-down results list. A search for "Mark" on Minipedia returns "Mark Zuckerberg" as the top result, a more relevant answer for most users. Minipedia's intelligent search returns both results that begin with and results that contain "Mark," (e.g., Mark Zuckerberg, Mark Wahlberg, Denmark, Affiliate Marketing, Marketing, Mark Twain, Mark Hamill, Mark Ruffalo, and Trademark). Searches frequently end before the entire word has been entered.
By comparison, Wikipedia provides these more proper, but less relevant results: Marketing, Mark Twain, Market, Market Town, Mark Antony, Marks & Spencer, Mark Knowles, and Mark Woodford.
## Multiple Languages
Need German and English at the same time? No Problem! The language is not tied to the language settings of your device, you can have several languages simultaneously.

Ratings and Reviews
Best offline encyclopaedia app available
I wanted ann encyclopaedia I could use without internet connectivity. I travel and am often without internet access. This appears to work very well
The only one.
UPDATE Dec 2017: this app and the Wikipedia content has not been updated for years. Very sad.
This seems to be the last of quite a few Wikipedia offline apps. There are others but they are either no longer supported or poor.
This one is really good with excellent formatting. It is not cheap but I certainly recommend it.
Great for me as I don't have 24:7 access to the internet, the offline database is invaluable in those moments..!!!
