Editors Review:

Can’t understand why I used to read wiki articles in Safari. You need to get this app if you are even slightly intellectually curious. It’s not a question that Wikipedia is the world’s gold standard for encyclopedic information on EVERYTHING, but if you didn’t know that, well, congrats, now you know. My dad got me a set of World Book encyclopedias when I turned 9. I loved those books but they might as well be fire starters at this point. I wonder if kids in the future will even appreciate how valuable this resource is, because they have never known not being able to briefly survey something instantly... The saddest thing about this app is not a flaw at all; it is that in the reference category Wikipedia is only #34, while the #2 is held by a bleeping bible app. Humanity, we still have a long way to go... My favorite feature: I especially love the language switch button at the bottom.

This app is really good! This app is really good like source of information if you know what you need/want or at least about what you need/want to know. It’s not app where you can go to home page and see interesting article. You need to search article which you need so you need to know its name. It is not a news app, yes it has a news section, but there are not much news and it is very difficult to find news on a particular topic in which you are interested, for example, there you can filter news by country but results will be really bad. It is not news app, but it’s good source of information. This app also like the website supports many languages. It’s an international app. Full list of supported languages you can find in the app description. But some people say that Wikipedia is not accurate source of information. Partially I agree with this statement because anyone can edit or create an article in Wikipedia, so for scientists this source is not good. Also in different languages this app has different articles with a little bit different information.OK, let’s summarize, this app is the best in its class of apps where you can find information about different topics. In my opinion Wikipedia app is very good. I like it!

Used for years and the information I receive is very useful and accurate. It is where other servers have learned to direct me. I use it daily now and gradually got here since 1996. The critiques are already accomplished by many others over the decades and I mostly agree. Except I have noticed that too many non critical thinkers do not have much experience, but discount the encyclopedia outright as “teachers” not recommending the site to “students”. Since I have been given gifts of critical thinking from my parents and siblings and experience, and reviewing data, it is almost always a direction I would take that if someone said not to do XYZ .. and especially, in this case, not to read or use such, it is precisely where I would go to start a search. Happily I am. bmthomp

From Wikimedia Foundation: Official Wikipedia App for Android. Wikipedia is the free encyclopedia containing more than 32 million articles in 280 languages, and is the most comprehensive and widely used reference work humans have ever compiled. Features: Tabbed browsing: pressing-and-holding a link lets you open it in a new tab, allowing you to keep reading the current article without losing your place, and switch to the new tab when you're ready. Link previews: Tapping on a link shows a preview of the linked article, giving you a chance to get the gist of the link without losing your place in the article you're reading. Reading Lists: Organize the articles you browse into reading lists, which you can access even when you're offline. Create as many lists as you like, give them custom names and descriptions, and populate them with articles from any language wiki.
