Customer Reviews

Works exceptionally well.

I rather like this app quite a lot. The only things I would appreciate seeing in the future are: 1) An option to go forwards as well as backwards through viewed pages. 2) An ability to organize bookmarked/saved pages. 3) And a bit more stability on opening links out of web browsers as they sometimes do not follow through, instead leaving you on the base 'explore' page.

Holy wow! has this app changed

All the new features are a huge and welcome surprise.

Thank you! Wiki devs.

Update: had to downgrade to 4 stars after a frustrating issue in which, when opening an article straight from Safari or Chrome, the app doesn't open it and instead updates it's homepage to the usual "article of the day" and news and whatnot, etc. This should be fixed, if only for the needless frustration.

Not Scholarly, but Simply Fun to Study

Wikipedia has a streamlined way of making me feel like I'm multitasking while referencing. I love how I'm able to bypass a dictionary, and click on the highlighted word to understand its meaning and more. Teachers may not allow it as a reference tool, which makes it like the Cliff Notes for finding references. It's a fun & simple study tool, and maybe I'm glad that it's not scholarly. It'd take the fun out of it.
