Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Kiwix enables you to have the whole Wikipedia (an many other web sites) at hand wherever you go! On a boat, in the middle of nowhere or in Jail, Kiwix gives you access to the whole human knowledge. You don't need Internet, everything is stored on your mobile device!
Download the Kiwix program from the iTunes App Store then download the ZIM data files. You can download the ZIM file (or files) directly using the Kiwix App on your iPone, iPad, or iPod Touch - but this might take a long time and is liable to errors.
A faster and more reliable method is to use a computer to download the small torrent file for the large non-indexed ZIM file you want (not the pre-indexed package for Windows) from http://www.kiwix.org/wiki/Content_in_all_languages, then use a bit-torrent client (such a qTorrent) to download the actual ZIM data file to your computer. You then transfer the ZIM file to your iOS device using iTunes File Sharing.

Fast, fluid, easy Wikipedia offline.
This made getting Wikipedia off grid a snap. Pictures too. It does all the hard work of getting you there. Runs fast and looks great on my iPad Pro 9.7in.
All of Wikipedia, offline! It includes an auto-refresh function, as well. We're getting closer to "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" everyday!
Wonderful in the woods and country. Perfect interface.
