The best gets even better! Enhance Wikipedia with queue mode, designed for keeping track of entries you want to read in the future. Add entries to the queue easily while browsing, and optionally save them for faster visiting or offline browsing. Downloading entries for offline or accelerated reading happens in the background while you browse and read other pages, so you don't have to stop and wait for pages to be saved.

Doesn’t work with self-hosted wikis
This app doesn’t work at all for wikis you self-host. It also hasn’t been updates in over 10 months and the instructions of the website has multiple broken links.
An invaluable tool
Wikipanion Plus makes searching Wikipedia or other popular wikis easy, providing scoped search for these sites in a native iOS app. I use it all the time. It's definitely worth it to support indie developers like this and get a powerful, easy-to-use app.
Mostly plus, a little minus
Queued browsing and individual control over saved (cached) articles--independant of bookmarks--is why I spent the 5 bucks, why I use this Wikipedia reader the most, and why this app stands alone among the many. These features seem to work perfectly, or nearly so.
On the other hand, the UI could be improved. For example, the only access to all bookmark-related controls and screens (and history) is via the button in the search textbox at the top of the page.
Also, the "More" option in the settings menu in landscape mode seems pointless. Why not just continue the list of options?
Last, a full screen mode/control would be great—like how many iOS Web browsers have.
