This Kiwix is well worth having, especially now that there is a setting for external storage. With a setting for the micro-sd or external storage, and with all the various things that can be downloaded, this Kiwix is just as good as Minipedia and better. The company that is allowing free access to its off-line zim files is being generous. It looks like zim files have the power to work off-line.

Though I wanted to give 10 stars if it does as what it described, but unfortunately that have never happened. Many of zim files downloaded from their site will not be recognized by the software. They said it's a known bug and will be fixed in a next update which is 3.5, but they didn't. It still ignore huge wiki zim file, and saids it's not a valid zim, thoug they're from the official web site. In addition to that, my mac version crashes when using search function. kiwix project is full of bugs

Getting Kiwix to a usable point is time consuming and troublesome. I dug through the list and set it to download several wikis. The app seems to need to be in focus to download, downloads keep pausing, the app keeps crashing, and after three days in I finally only gotten one wiki - meanwhile it's constantly harassing new to rate the app. The app doesn't seem to take me to a list of wikis when I start it, it just dumps me into the first one I downloaded, and I have to dig into a menu to find the others. Not at all intuitive. Maybe it'll be different when I finally get a second wiki on here. It's an awesome premise! I can read and research when I'm in a dead zone, the internet is down or at camp. However, getting to that point drinking is a pain!
