Accessing Wikipedia has never been faster and easier than with Wikipanion, designed for easy, search, navigation and display of Wikipedia entries. Streamline your browsing with history grouped by visit date, and bookmarking that not only ...
Wikipanion is easily the app I have logged the most hours into of any app ever programmed I love it It is superb and unmatched in its usability and features I would marry these 1 s and 0 s if I could but not until you guys fix the search bar I hate sometimes having to wait 30 seconds for a Wikipedia page to load with a wait like that I might as well use safari Please fix this app and return it to its former perfection                 Almost The Greatest App Ever Guy96
I ve used this for what feels like forever probably at least 7 years It s been good but it s getting tougher around the edges Really needs better slide right to go back animation And if I 3D Touch the icon and select search the search interface is not only completely messed up but it plain and simple doesn t work Always returns zero results             Showing its age Good but buggy Tom_From_Cowtown
I ve been using this app since around 2010 when there was no other wiki app This is definitely the best one Intuitive and simple to use                     Best wiki app Chelsee Teleha
On my iPhone X the wiktionary page is completely unusable Wiktionary is my only use case in this app Please fix it     Wiktionary completely broken in new version Nan Ma
Please optimize the app for the iPhone X Besides that I absolutely love the app Has everything I need                 Please update spac92
I replaced Wikipedia s own app with this one just so I could play all the audio files It does the job                     Plays audio files JoanDarkenSeal
Been using this app since it was the first wikipedia app available on the app store                     Since the first app store He Who Cannot Die
The app has become unbearably slow It basically freezes after picking a page and a minute later it finally loads I don t know why it started doing this Please fix this         Slow Erin Toney
Update 1 This app is so amazing It is literally easier to use this app than wikipedia itself and Wikipedia has one of the finest UIs out there By the way I would not use this app half as much if it were not for its spectacular app logo it s design perfection makes it no less appealing than the forbidden fruit that just beckons you like a neighboring paradise to want to click on it Original This app is wonderful I was looking for a quick way to access Wiktionary and until this app I had to open chrome go to wiktionary then search Now I can just 3D touch to search directly From 3 steps to 1 And when it has to do with looking a word up anything to help fight the troublesome burden of inertia is sweeter than the first sips of honey laced port wine Thanks for the app                     Perfection ingot Lipe
The app still works but in iOS 11 it is extremely slow Please fix this         SLOW Typhanus
The app freezes whenever I search something in the search bar and then promptly crashes Please update the app for iOS 11     Not working on iOS 11 Mauri-007
Please add a night reading mode Would make this app perfect                 Could Be Perfect Major_Ursa
Mainstay on my phone iPod for almost 8 years Love it Fantastic                     Consistent Zainhka
So reliable for easily navigating Wikipedia                     Solid AK82
Still no simple sliding animation when swiping forward and backward through pages Apple introduced this feature in iOS 4 I think it was It s too hard to navigate by swiping without this simple feature And why does my review keep getting deleted Stop censoring me Garbage app     Programming is 5 years behind CashDude
Been using this app since I had my first iPod touch back around 2008 or 2009 and it has been consistently clean intuitive and perfectly functional I ve never had a single complaint This app has stood the test of time and is a mainstay on my device                     Nearly 10 years of superb functionality Jor/Jas
This formally was a favorite app of mine However it recently has faded and now the Wikipedia app is much much better It all started with their hideous new icon and now certain features don t work the app randomly crashes and it s outdated in terms of usability     Outdated Jyoung185
I intended to leave this review for the Wikipanion Plus app but the iTunes Store is telling me I need to have purchased the app which I have done in order to review it My one star rating has nothing to do with the functioning of the app itself but rather with the pricing I recently acquired a new iPhone and began populating it with the essential apps I have on my iPad Some of these apps I had paid for while others were free I was able to download and install all of the paid for apps without having to pay for them again with the exception being Wikipanion Plus which wants me to pay for it again I thought that purchasing an app on from one device meant that as long as I was using the same Apple ID I could install it on another device without having to pay for it again And there doesn t seem to be a way to communicate with the app s developer on his web page Other than this issue I like the app and would probably give it four or five stars     Cost of app navamske
I ve been using this app since the iPhone 3G good UI UX Very easy to navigate and read                     Best Wiki App ChachiTHEgr8
I personally love the new icon and the app itself is reliable and easy to use                     Still love it Dice1971
Overall this app is awesome much better layout and navigation versus the Wikipedia app I have used this app since it first came out for iPhone 3G i am on 64bit iOS 9 3 2 I would like to see Open in Wikipanion option for Safari links for Wikipedia Also with the latest version the autoscroll is broke for jump to section links in the table of contents menu It acts like it s going to scroll but doesn t move and then if you try to scroll it autoscrolls back to the top of the page hopefully they ll have a bug fix for this soon                 Great App anon(1234567890)
I have used Wikipedia in the past and it s no where near as great as wikipanion This app shows more info and better ability to save what you read                     Better then Wikipedia J.Donald
I love this because of its simple uncluttered and readable design But it does have some issues the biggest in my opinion that back forward navigation will lose position in an article and return to the very top quite frequently I now use the official Wikipedia app due to this         Some annoyances bryan121
I have used this for years but am finally looking for alternatives If I start reading Article A and click a link to Article B when I return to Article A I am taken to the top of the article more often than not It s strange that this doesn t happen 100 of the time but certainly enough to be annoying 6s             Needs to remember position Boss B
Although one can select text using this app the prompt which allows one to copy the selected text to the clipboard disappears instantly too fast for one to push it             Can t copy to clipboard gosiditzhfzbbfHf
By far the best Wikipedia app in terms of design and layout The official is still garbage even after all the updates trying to make it look nice However this app is what you want if you actually want to read articles and especially want you want if the article has a bunch of tables like a discography The official Wikipedia app has every table closed automatically and it s a slight but persistent annoyance WikiPanion forever                     The Best FourSquare Hater
Between the clean and easy interface design and the ability to read other wiki sites this is my go to app for Wikipedia browsing Highly recommended                     Quality Wiki reader Qoholeth
All of a sudden for weeks now I cannot search for anything bc app says that I don t have an Internet connection I deleted the app then reinstalled Same problem persists HOW DO I FIX I use this app regularly Please help     Cannot search for anything anoniphone
No complaints Good UI and easy to navigate Much cleaner than using Wikipedia on the web                     Really solid DaModestProdigy
Have been using since 2010 but recently had to switch to a different app Unbearable lag time when scrolling articles on my 6s I d start scrolling and it d take the app about half a second to respond             Had to quit using E30mpower
Let me force touch to preview a link and also implement back navigation with animations instead of the jarring transition now compare edge swiping back in safari vs this app Also it only remembers position when I go back about half the time Fix that please With that I would give it 5 stars             Needs force touch swipe animation dgp1
I highly recommend downloading this App to look up Wikipedia It s quick no Ads and is stable                 Good App iV2V
After upgrading my iPhone 5s to iOS 9 2 when I click a link in an article and then return to the original article it always goes back to the top of the original article rather than remembering where I was when I clicked the link in the original article             Doesn t Remember Location of a Clicked Link genie10
I ve been using this app for a few years and it is rock solid                     Best Wikipedia App Out There Scaggs35636345634
Been using this one for a couple of years now The official Wikipedia app could never catch up to this quality app                 Best Wikipedia App
Cant access font slider using iphone 5s Wikipanion No matter what I do Still not supported        David F Ortiz
Would be nice to see settings to adjust text and font size to make larger or have the app look to the iPhone text size settings Can you format the text to fit the screen width from left to right when using pinch to zoom              Toms Wikipanion Review
I have used this app for over two years now I have never had any issues with bugs glitches or unexpectedunexplained crashes The informations is easily retrievable and very well organized The user interface is naturally intuitive I strongly recommend this application for any Apple product user                 Wonderful functional application
Its not working on my iPhone after last update Some content doesnt load or is delayed The bugs issues are more prominent now than before Keep the previous version as it was working with no trouble        Trouble after 2015 update
FWIW Wikipedia app is a Wikipanion wannabe Wikipanion provides fast straightforward access Nothing in the way no stems no seeds that you dont need I cant imagine what the paid version would do for me so Im sticking with the freebie But each time I for the heckuvit look at the Wikipedia app again I remain convinced Wikipanion is the one                 Exactly right
Excellent Wikipedia reader                 Great
The web site says you can easily reset your history on the iPhone settings page for Wikipanion However there is no such option nor is there an option to do so in the app itself Confused this would go unnoticed           Nice app but cannot clear history on iPhone
Best                 Best
The latest version crashes on my iPhone 4S Hope it gets fixed soon     App crashes
But what is that white bar on the top in landscape mode And its still there after so many updates              Great app
Still no simple sliding animation when swiping forward and backward through pages Apple introduced this feature in iOS 4 I think it was Im done I am finally deleting this app Its too hard to navigate by swiping without this simple feature     Programming is 5 years behind
However it loads so slowly now that Ive been using Google instead        Used to be GREAT
If you make a universal app at 3 I will buy full version to show support even though I dont need the features of the plus One of the best apps in the App Store and probably the oldest I have been using since I got my first iPad Great design thanks for making it free                 Great
One of the simplest most straightforward apps in the App Store Elegant design simple interface intuitive layout cannot recommend more                 Gorgeous intuitive app
I recently upgraded to an iPhone 6 and I have to say that this app is quite garbage Now when I go back to a previous page it doesnt go to the same section I was browsing Very inconvenient I just tried searching The Who only to find that this band does not exist Im over it     Better when I had a iphone 4
I had so many articles saved and organized in here And when I got my new phone the backup saved nothing     Lost all my info when I switched to iPhone 6plus
Great on iPhone and I even prefer the iPad interface to using the website on a PC or iPad                 Best Wikipedia iOS app
Very easy to use Google search results help immensely with words that are difficult to spell Perfect wiki app                 Simply the best wiki client
Fantastic to use and easy to navigate                 Great app
This would and used to be an awesome app but all it does is freeze and crash The update arent working     Crash Freeze
Loved this app until they updated it for iOS 8 and now I cant type more than 3 letters into the search bar before it crashes           Keeps crashing
Research app Ive ever used on the iPhone By far the best wiki app Ive used And I think Ive seen about all of em                 Best
my old review of this app was one of the only apps that does what it says its gonna do Im changing it to its become garbage theyve completely ripped out all the good assets of this app its simply trash now and the developer should be ashamed of his work no update since Feb Jesus        use to be good
App is okay but that it seems unable to open itself courtesy of a mobile browser link is a VERY significant deficit I absolutely despise visiting the Wikipedia Website instead of viewing the information through my local iPhone app ALWAYS first launch the app           Mediocre AppGREAT Idea
Without the Google search feature this app is nearly useless to me I want Google to search for me but Wikipanion to open the wiki page Thats it The default search is incredibly stunted Example If I put in the last names of two boxers who fought each other the default search is probably not going to point to that bout I end up having to go to my browser and searching first to find the exact name of the entry        What happened to the Google search feature
The app used to work great but it has since been really slow to open articles     So slow
Apple should hire this guy XD                 New update is awesome
Best Wikipedia app I have found I did use wikiamo but it quit working after trying several others this is the one Im going to keep              Best
This is a great app but sorely needs support for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Right now the magnified screen looks goofy and I use safari instead           Please add support for the iPhone 6 screen
I like this best Ive used Only real complaint is that the icon is not too visible                 Best Wikipedia app yet
My most used app                 Great
I finally got my iPhone 6 today and this app is no longer usable with my new phonewhich is a bummer because I always liked this app over safari Looks like Im going back to using safari until this gets fixed     Broken by 6
Seriously Look this is a solid useful app I use it all the time Dont be babies Im still running iOS 7                 1 star reviews over an icon
Fantastic upgrade for iOS 8 So well done A favorite app                 Fantastic Upgrade
I use this app all the time and think its one of the best in the store However the icon is an eyesore I had to remove t from the first page of my phone and hide it in a folder somewhere Please please change     Love this app hate the icon
Please add dark or night mode                 Great app but can you add night mode
When using the back button or left swipe to go back often skips to the top of the article or a totally different place Irritating        Forgets place on page
So helpful to have Wikipedias whole database on my iPod                 Great
New icon still abysmal Go back to the old classy icon        Awful icon
I started using this App on my first generation iPad and I think its THE best way to access Wikipedia from an iDevice Not sure why some people are complaining about it because it still looks beautiful and works perfectly on an iPhone 5S running OS 8 I think its even better than the official Wikipedia App Check it out and send this guy some money                 Wonderful
As others have mentioned there seem to be problems with the app that have accumulated over the last several updates For months now searches will return results but individual pages take ages to load quite the accomplishment given that most Wiki pages are nothing but line after line of text Even manually closing the app and reopening it doesnt help After literally being unable to open a single page for 5 minutes Im done with this app     Sluggish performance
This app forgets this basic simple fact     Encyclopedias are alphabetic
Ive been using this App since its inception on the iPhonewhich is a long time Its always worked phenomenally well I upgraded to an iPhone 6 Plus two months ago and it still works fantastically Its without a doubt my go to app for references Terrific job Please keep it up                 FANTASTIC
The app is extremely slow to open linked articles The version simply will not Please FIX THIS     SLOW
Then it started freaking out the keyboard would not display when my cursor was in search Also it would stick in landscape mode Used to be able to close it and then re open to make it work Today no go so Ill go to another app     Used to be good
This once was a phenomenal app They seem to not have figured out how to make the swipe back gesture work properly Sometimes it goes back to where you left off and more often it goes back to the start of the last page Incredibly annoying        Used to be a great app
Even better on the iPhone 6 Plus                 Great
App gets stuck in landscape out of nowhere on Iphone 5 Works fine on Ipad Air Usually happens after a search Superirritating please address Update after the most recent update now its even worse Now its LOCKED in landscape no matter what whereas before it would only happen at random or when I went into the table of contents for a particular page This has been going on too long Im giving up and finding another Wikipedia app     Constantly gets stuck in landscape
Logged in to redownload the main Wikipedia app but feeling frustrated with its interface or lack thereof I looked through the others Within five minutes of using this app Ive found my immediate goto This thing is so simple anyone can and should use it Navigating pages is either through scroll or the quick guide at the center console My one request would be a night read feature Change the font white and the background black so it doesnt bombard me with white light in dark rooms This app earns 5 stars for its complete ease of use and for the developer not making something more complicated and unreadable like the main app or other copy cats                 Grand in its Simplicity
