Customer Reviews

Better than actual site.

This a faster more convenient version of Wikipedia. More reliable and there on the go whenever your curiosity peaks. With everything you need in an article sorted in a side bar ever so cleverly you'll never use a browser again to search for this. I recommend to all.

Great app - just needs a few additional features

This is a great way to search and access the best general purpose reference.

However, there are two things I believe it needs: search in page and vary font size.

Search in page is vital, especially for longer pages. Wikipanion has search in page and I use it almost every time I use it.

Vary font size - depending on age and other sources of fatigue, users are more comfortable with different font sizes, even from morning to evening.

You've got a great app here - please keep improving it.

Latest update broke it

I loved this app before the April 15, 2015 update. After that, it never worked. I reference Wikipedia frequently so this was very disappointing. I kept getting "upgrading local data" and the app would just hang. I deleted it and reinstalled it just now. I hope this fixes the bug. However, a well-designed app shouldn't require this step.
