One of the better Wikipedia apps There are many Wikipedia apps in the Play Store. Few of them are any more useful than the official one. This one is an exception. A clean layout, the ability to save articles and tabbed browsing (!!!) Push this one to the upper ranks. Not too many bells and whistles, and this is good, but it has everything a wiki app should have.
Disappearing images, no NO images 3 separate sets of menu items means it takes some getting used to finding the right button you want to select. Pictures disappear immediately after pages load. This also happens with no images selected in the settings. Actually, the tick in the box for load images keeps coming back even after hitting save. Great ideas for features though.. Windows, bookmarks, quick language switch (although it would be better if the current article would be shown in the language that was switched to, not looking up the)etc.
Nexus 7 android 4.4 I purchased the gwiki pro key and gwiki worked fine. Recently, however, the pictures display for an instant and then disappear and are replaced with a tiny icon (a tiny page icon with the top right corner turned down). The standard wiki app displays the pictures ok. Please fix this issue as soon as possible.
Lovin' It I use Wiki a lot, and prefer this one over the others because I can bookmark articles and put them in various categories. My main complaint is that it does not sync across devices so I cannot access my bookmarks from device 2 device. What's up devs, you don't like the cloud? ;)
Good, but buggy Would have given it 5 stars, but I've got the same problem like many others, that images keep on disappearing too frequently. Otherwise, it's a nice app, supporting easy language switching and offline reading. Please fix the image bug to make it an excellent app! Update: Reduced the rating from 4 to 3 stars because of two more issues I found out recently. First, I purchased a PRO key, but it applies only to a single device. On my other device, the app doesn't upgrade automatically, like other apps usually do. Not a nice business policy... Second, when reading saved pages while being online, all links yield a 'webpage not available' error. The app should recognize that I'm online, and open non-saved pages online. All in all, the app is nice, but still very far from being mature.
*STILL* Broken! Images *still* broken, *still* disappear constantly, even IMMEDIATELY following reboot. Says "Fix Wikipedia picture not display issue" under latest version's "What's new", but that IS NOT the case. The sad truth is I feel this dev simply doesn't care enough to take care of business, based on my share of dealings with him. This is the ONLY app I've seen behave this way, and this nonsense has been going on over 3 *years* now. Started at 5★, is now 2★ all because dev refuses to properly address this one issue.
