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.
Freedom from 3G/4G!!! This app is simply the best! With it and some offline dictionaries I no longer need to use the Internet to do my projects, especially at a time when the 3G/4G Internet is still expensive and unreliable! Congratulations to the developers, you guys are amazing!!
Searching has zero fault tolerance I use a complete 2015 English Wikipedia that takes nearly 50 GB on an SD card. It is a very important resource in my life, which is luckily often offline. The drawback is the unforgiving search. Case sensitive after the first letter. Article names consisting of more than one word are not shown unless the words are typed in order. The exact spelling of the article name has to be known or guessed by trial and error, sometimes unsuccessfully. And there is no searching of the article contents.
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.
The new version for android is wonderful but the kiwix for windows dosen't display images !??! Why ? Even I download all wikipedia zim file with pictures (42GB)and try another wikipedia in other languge but there is not displaying to images (windows vista and seven and 8.1) and the same zim file display pictures in android only !!!!!
something broke in marshmallow. cannot open zim files from within app as the app cannot detect zims in external storage. only workaround is opening a zim file via a file manager. also the app doesn't exit anymore. would be nice to have an exit button like before or long-press the back button? response to dev's reply: thanks for replying wow! my external storage is a 64gb micro sd mounted on storage/exfat_uuid in my xperia z3 compact. to be fair a few of my other apps also had to be reconfigured to use the new mount point storage/exfat_uuid when i upgraded to marshmallow. maybe in the future kiwix can allow mount path to be manually set in settings?
