Description

66% OFF WITH TwoDollarTues! ONE TIME SALE!

Wiki Offline delivers the premium reading experience for the entire corpus of human knowledge. This premiere service is the result of collaboration with over 1000 users just like you. Join the myriad of scientists, teachers, frequent flyers, vacationers, parents, and knowledge lovers whose lives have been improved by Wiki Offline.

Upon launching the app, you will be prompted to download Wikipedia onto your device. EVERY article will be available for you with no internet connection required. It has been meticulously compressed (English is under 3GB) while maintaining all of the data in every single article. (Note that pictures and tables are not included, but can be downloaded from within the app). This download is fully resumable and hosted on high speed servers located around the world.

Wikipedia databases are offered in several different languages: English, Chinese, Italian, Arabic, Czech, Spanish, Russian, Dutch, Portuguese, Norwegian, Turkish, Thai, Polish, French, Hungarian, Farsi, Japanese, Hebrew, Korean, Swedish, Danish, and Slovak.

ADDITIONAL DATABASES & UPDATES

Out of the box, each user can download one language database. To accommodate users who have requested multiple databases and the ability to update the database periodically, we have utilized the new Lion In-App Purchase mechanism. Note that this requires OSX Lion 10.7+

For a nominal fee to support bandwidth costs, users can elect to subscribe (via in-app purchase) to additional databases. This one-time purchase per language allows the user to download this additional language on all of their computers that run the app, and gives them the ability to download future updates to this additional purchased language.

Funker perfekt - når det endelig er nedlastet

Se bort ifra det faktum at denne appen praktisk talt er tilgjengelig over nett - gratis, i et annet format.

Jeg kjøpte appen fordi at jeg trodde det kom til å minimere nedlastningstiden og jeg tok feil. Lasta ned programmet kvelden før eksamen, men det var ikke ferdiglasta dagen etterpå, selv om det kan ha noe med internettlinja mi å gjøre.

Appen fungerer helt som beskrevet når den er lasta ned. Det er ikke seneste versjonen av wikipediabibilioteket som blir lastet ned, men det er omtrent irrelevant. Anbefaler å velge engelsk språk etter innstalasjon, da den hyppigst blir oppdatert og at man bare kan velge et språk i gangen.

Problemet som blir beskrevet under, som at den kræsjer eller ikke fungerer pga. Wikipedias nye måte å sortere sidene siden på, er fikset i den nye oppdateringen. Etter kort tids bruk er jeg fornøyd. Gir applikasjonen 3 stjerner, da jeg ikke mener funksjonaliteten ikke står i forhold til prisen.
