Ratings and Reviews
Wiki can’t search?
This was once a brilliant knowledge tool!
I don’t get the slowness that others get in similar reviews!
May be they don’t refresh the screen?
But anyway.. there are times when I want to look for something, that
there is no search box to type in your query?
I check around to see where it’s gone, refresh the screen turn the
Iphone on and off check the settings, but there still is no box to type in
Then I go to google and type the same word I want to look up, then
It appears in the search under Wikipanion? Click on it and it’s good!
Then I do another search in the wiki app again and the search query box
appears.... hurray I can search again!
When I leave the app and come back to it another time the “search query
box,” is gone again!
Ahhhh soooo frustrating!
There’s no need to update its search lay out its. Ergonomically perfect
You get the information you need in a simple format, updating it an complicate
Just sort out the main problem, the actual search query bug??????
Why have you switched the SLOW switch??
This app has by far been my most used app over the last few years. A few years ago I gave a 5 star review but today I have changed that to a 1 star review. Literally in the last month you have changed something in this app which makes it slow and not very responsive. Can you please flick the switch back to FAST?? I’m most certainly not going to pay £4.99 for the upgraded version!!
With no new features in years, it seems this app is simply on life-support at this time. Different themes, some kind of refresh to the user interface (which doesn’t seem to have been changed in the past 9 years), and taking advantage of the new features that each new iOS version has brought would be great.
As of now, the app is slow, very outdated, and hasn’t made any significant gains in years.
