Ratings and Reviews
I’ve used this since getting an iPad 2. It’s the best looking and easy to use Wikipedia app. My only request is that there be a gesture to go back a page (the usual swipe to the right brings up a useful left hand pane).
First class app in every way
This app has been in my dock since my iPad 1. It’s been updated, tweaked and tended with love and care by its developer. I use it every day.
It not only gives you the cleanest version of Wikipedia available, but you can also add other wikis like Doctor Who, South Park, and Star Trek.
You can bookmark your favorite sections and the history feature has proven invaluable.
A first class app in every respect.
This is one of my favorite resource apps. Keep up the good work!
