What's New in Version 4.1.5

Hello everyone,

Before we get to what’s new, we have some important information for iOS 6 users: This is our last planned release which will support iOS 6.

For users who have iOS 6 devices, you can continue use the app for the foreseeable future, but will no longer receive app updates after 4.1.5. You will also be able to re-install 4.1.5 on any of your iOS 6 devices, even if you delete it.

For users with newer devices, you will be unaffected by this change, except that we have some exciting updates in the pipeline that were only possible after dropping support for iOS 6.

Now for what’s new:

* Lead images now load faster and fade in smoothly
* Switch article languages quicker with the new button in the toolbar
* More article layout improvements
* More reliable loading of articles from the cache
* Added a link to the FAQ in Settings > More
* New translations (Thanks to all our translators!)
* Fix crash on startup for some device languages (Like Norwegian)
* Several other crash fixes


Thanks to everyone for using the Wikipedia iOS app and helping us make it better.

- The Wikimedia Reading Team

Customer Reviews

Encouragement

Hey Wikipedia reading app team, I've noticed a few rather harsh and unnecessarily negative reviews lately, so I finally decided to take the time and let you guys know how I feel. You're doing a fantastic job! : ) I love the app, the consistency of updates/bug fixes, and of course, the time and effort put into its ongoing development. Keep on doing what you love, and don't let yourselves forget the value you add to people's lives. It's appreciated. (Even though most are probably like me and forget to write reviews!)

How about find in page?

Love it but wish there was a way to search for text within a page like a web browser. Still not there on the latest version.

Not good

• Full screen images look bad; the entire top is dimmed to ensure close button visibility. Why not place a dark circle behind the X?
• "W" menu looks really bad. Please use standard iOS menus. Please.
• Wikipedia logo on toolbar looks too large compared to search button.
• "Send usage reports" should be opt-IN, not opt-out. It's wrong to bury it & not inform users.
