Ratings and Reviews
Great for visual referencing!
An absolutely great visual interface to Wikipedia. Makes doing research so much easier. The only thing missing, that keeps me from giving five stars, is the ability to create and manage bookmarks in folders. (I happen to have more than 150 so far.) Being able to search Wikipedia using “visual” bookmarks would be even better!
I had Siri read to me. When moving on to the next section ( the ones you drop down at the bottom) Siri glitches and all that is said is wwwwwwwwwww continuously until i select fast forward or next on the command bar for Siri
The web of our connections
Although, a infrequent nexus may be a bit contrived, the visual stimulation which one enjoys is the crux. Reading in landscape is so very satisfying.
One question; If the app accesses iCloud, why can’t I link histories between iPhone and iPad apps? It would be so very useful.
Overall, WikiLinks is the reference app of choice. Well done.
