Easily Accessible Ever since i got into Wikipedia, i stopped reading books and playing video games and watching movies/tv. I always get distracted and want to research a topic mentioned in a movie/game/tv show. With this app its much easier to read articles without the lag and data consumption of a web app.
Didn't know what I don't know. Accessing the Wikipedia site is easier and so handy to save entries for offline reading. Learning something new everyday. Keep discovering that there are a lot of things to learn about that I had no idea I would be interested in. The more I use this app the more find I didn't know as much about some subject as I thought I did, and now I've become insufferable and even more of a "know it all" that doesn't know enough. Want to see a more layman's way to submit info into articles, as I find it confusing.
Great app Great for saving Wikipedia article offline as chrome fails to expand text in offline pages. A bug I encountered was that clicking on citation numbers doesn't take you to their link in references list instead the #link opens in browser where it doesn't load. Kindly fix this feature in next update.
They took out my page about notable faculty at Jonathan Alder. They claimed faculty weren't noteworthy enough. Then, I added a certain faculty member to the Notable Alumni section that not only graduated from the district but has also taught at all the schools within the district through his entire career. Yet, he still wasn't noteworthy. Keep in mind, the three alumni in the Notable Alumni section include someone who was part of a small band for like a year, someone who just happened to play football after highschool, and someone who got a doctorate.
I am very surprised and disappointed that at January 2017, this app still has severe a reoccurring problems with saving & syncing articles to your account permanently. It just doesn't seem to work, I frequently lose my lists. And I've only ever used two Samsung Note devices over the past two years. To at least somewhat alleviate that issue, sync should be activated automatically and login as well as sync status should be visible while surfing (almost) any Wikipedia page / content, not just under Settings.
New update is awful Before the update the app was perfect. After the update all my tabs are deleted and it crashes on every screen. I can't even search something because it crashes within the first 10 seconds. Worst update of any app yet.
