Its amazing to access the whole wikipedia without any data connection, even in flight mode, free, no bags and without adds. Some are rating this low, not because the app is bad, but they don't know how to use it. I would ask them to read the FAQ, before publishing unfair remarks. Happy to see that our suggestions have been honored and we're enjoying the app 100%. Kiwiks Team, your excellent!
Downloaded the complete Wikipedia ZIM file (wikipedia_en_all_nopic.zim). The search function still needs improvement, thus the 4 stars. For example, a search for the tallest peak in the world will not give you any hits if you search 'mt everest', 'Mt Everest', or 'Mt. Everest'. To get any matching search result for the highest mountain peak, you have to type 'Mount Everest'. It has trouble recognizing abbreviations and other variants. Hope it improves in future updates because it really is a very good app.
I love this app. Having an entire off-line encyclopedia as good as Wikipedia in the palm of your hand is a modern miracle. BUT the last time any of the articles were updated is early 2011. How is this app not able to add new articles and provide revisions to old ones ?
The latest build (2.2 build 53) has wonderful improvements. However... PROBLEM: The new version DOES import old bookmarks from previous versions but the bookmarks DON'T open. Sometimes they open but when they do they open the wrong bookmark. This is Kiwix on my Galaxy Note 2 phone, running Android 4.1.2. Please try to fix. This is still my favourite app and highly recommended.
I'd like the option to pause downloads when wifi is unavailable.if I wasn't watching the download I might've used 50gigs worth of cellular data! Also, more WikiLeaks dumps would be great. Overall, awesome app, devs!
Anytime I have downloaded a Wiki app I have never been disappointed. Though I do not like being asked to rate the app before I use it, Wiki has earned the title automatically. Thank you for creating such a wonderful source of education for the people for free. You guys always do a great job and I can't wait to contribute.
