Customer Reviews

Saved articles organization and crashes

PLEASE FIX, app crashes every ~30 seconds, currently impossible to use. I have about 2 GB of saved articles but they can only be organized by time saved. Please introduce options for things like oldest-newest and alphabetical. Another request would be an option to save every article a given article links to. Otherwise amazing app, good work.

Crashes before the end of every article without fail

I love this app but I cannot rate it higher than 2 stars while this bug survives. I can't read any article without the app abruptly crashing every single time. I also am very annoyed by the app opening from Safari every time I access the mobile Wikipedia site, though that seems to have stopped recently. I'm keeping the app on my phone because it used to be awesome, but right now I would definitely not recommend it.

Excellent resources

I always find information about the person or thing I'm curious about when I use Wikipedia. I've never came across anything that resembled slander so I appreciate Wikipedia's unbiased information.

Wikipedia is hands down the best place to get information on any topic you might need or are just curious about!
