7 Jun update crashes repeatedly. Even in old "working" versions, Android UI is terrible. If you want Wikipedia, you're first confronted with a list of thousands of niche libraries that cannot be quickly scrolled. Wikipedia is of course at the bottom, and offered in hundreds of languages, most obscure, and not quite in alphabetical order. Good luck finding English! Unfortunately, a search for "Wikipedia English" returns zero results. Best bet is to select a language in Settings and browse.

Dear Brent, Kiwix should not crash and we would really like to understand why. Would you like to help us to fix it by opening a bug at https://github.com/kiwix/kiwix-android/issues/new/choose. That would be very helpful. Thank you in advance.

Great when it works. Having offline access to some of the information you can download on here is useful for a multitude of situations. But many files are straight up incompatible with the app, near constant crashes when opening or switching between downloaded files, some don't open at all, and it could use filters to better search for files worth downloading. Ultimately a great idea, but it doesn't run well on my device at least (Google Pixel 6a). Would love to see some stability improvements.

After obtaining a new phone, I'm starting to suspect that the issues I previously had with this app we're related to either the phone I was using or the version of Android I was using. This one seems much better. It is stable, the download manager appears to function well and a stable, and the only criticism that I can think of is the fact that it sometimes takes quite a while to load a very large file like Wikipedia which is currently over 90GB.
