"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

"There are a bunch of dedicated Wikipedia iPhone apps, and there are several I like. But I like Articles best. It’s fast, it looks great (including the formatting of articles), and it has a very clever MobileSafari-inspired UI." – John Gruber, Daring Fireball

Customer Reviews

German precision

The most beautiful and intuitive interface to wikipedia you'll find. I love the tap and hold to save articles to read later. And the tap and hold to customize the toolbar (which is the first time I've seen this in an app). Great support too. I've reported a couple of obscure layout bugs in the past and the dev hasn't given up until they were fixed. Thanks Sophia!

Well done

A very handy and easy to read app especially on a small phone screen, if you seek for an information about a random object this app would be the best choice for you.

Well

I actually really like the new icon. Didn't care for the old one, but I think the new is great. The update could stand to look more in line with iOS 7's new UX though. Still no reason for <5 ⭐️s though.
