Par Excellence!!! It's inexplicably a huge store of reference. It's indeed a great blessing particularly for those who have no access to internet connection. May God bless your great efforts! May I request your kind help? How to transfer the data from SD CARD to Apple Phone. It's not recognizing the ZIM file format. Can you kindly help use KIWIX in IOS? Thanx.
Fabulous app.. Its very smooth running but I am not able to add multiple files(Wikipedia and Wiktionary) simultaneously. At one time only one opens and not able to add other in other tab so as to switch easily between tabs. To use either I have to first select that file and load. Please make possible to add and and load multiple files hence providing option to switch between tabs.
All of human knowledge in my pocket. We truly are living in the future. For the full English Wikipedia, you need a 64GB SD card (nearly full). To include the index you need something a bit larger (next one up is 128 GB). The interface isn't quite as good a Firefox, but it's pretty good - and much faster even on a fast network. On my 720x1280 screen, there's a common glitch where the first few words of an article appear next to a photo or summary box and then there's a long gap down to the rest of the text. This seems less common than in previous versions.
Super useful! Great if you don't have an internet connection sometimes. You can still read and learn about things from the Wikimedia foundation with this app. Wish I had more storage space on my phone so that I could download more articles! Wish it handled filed switching better, but they've replied that they want to do that soon in another review.
Search function/indexing improved! Downloaded the complete Wikipedia ZIM file (wikipedia_en_all_nopic.zim). The most recent update greatly improved search/indexing function. Where before you have to search using the exact phrase, word case and without abbreviations depending on the word searched to get the correct hits, now, you can search using uppercase or lower case, abbreviated or not and still get hits. Ex. : Mt mt mount Mount Mt. mt. will give you results for mountains. Before, you have to type the exact word 'Mount' to get results.
Very Good. One suggestion. This app works very well but could the developers please improve the text-to-speech (TTS) options. Kiwix will read a Wiki as audio but there is no ability to pause the audio. It would make the audio (TTS) feature more friendly. Thankyou for developing a great app.
