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 when data charges are too high, Kiwix gives you access to the whole human knowledge for free. 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 because some files are rather large.
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 can then transfer the ZIM file to your iOS device using iTunes File Sharing.
What's New in Version 1.8
- Library has a new look
- Support zim files with build in index
- Performance optimization
This is a very nice and responsive app. They recently added support for indexed Wiki files, which makes it truly awesome. To have the complete English & Italian Wikipedia on my phone and accessible offline is unbelievably great, so glad I bought the phone with extra storage.
This Update Causes Crashes
Since I discovered this app, my life has increased. I use an iPod touch, so without Kiwix, in order to learn about something, I have to scout around for some wifi. Kiwix is awesome and it fulfills its purpose.
On the other hand, after the most recent update, it has been crashing upon startup. Which makes me sad. FIX IT NOOOWW.
Best app in store
