By Avocado Hills, Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Worldly is a browser for Wikitravel that has been specially engineered for offline access. It is designed to deliver the greatest, most customizable reading experience with blazing fast search and loading speeds.
Wikitravel is an open source travel guide like Wikipedia. It has phrasebooks in over 30 languages, as well as information about history, sights, culture, airports, food, etc. for places all around the world. This app includes all of the text, including tables. The images can be downloaded separately for individual articles. Note that at the moment, the content is only available in English.
The app works by downloading Wikitravel onto your iPhone, iPod, or iPad. This means that each and every article -- yes, EVERY article -- will be available for you with no internet connection required. This app is perfect for plane flights, hotels, night-time reading, research, and any other adventures you may have!
If you would like to try out the software for free, please download our other app, "Wikipedia Offline Lite". It is free on the app store and looks and feels the same as this app.
