LoboWiki is an unofficial reader for Wikipedia™, designed for Android 4+ phones.

The main idea behind LoboWiki is to allow users to read Wikipedia articles in a distraction-free manner. It means that all the links you click are added to the reading queue, instead of being immediately opened.

Use the swipe gesture to move between articles in your reading queue!

LoboWiki is designed to be to simple, clean and user friendly (it's Holo!). It's not going to be a full-blown research tool - I'll focus on making it pleasure to use during longer, casual reading sessions.

    Clicking a link opens that page in the background. No other reader I've seen does this! Great feature!

    Only issue is that sub and super scripts don't seem to render so reading scientific articles requires some guesswork! Would love this to be fixed

    with the official apps getting good enough to meet our needs and the strong competitor wikireader. This is impressive lol. Though the market for this is... um. But thank you for this sharp app. I like it from the start.

    I like to save a lot of pages, so the lack of a sort function makes finding saved articles very frustrating. Also, a lot of the tables don't open.

    I used also Wikipedia application itself, but LoboWiki is simpler and more convenient. you can search topics beforehand at home-they are stored in search results and in case of limited wifi access or in a transport read them offline. night mode saves energy. pls add removing function to search results to sort them properly.

    If history and offline queueing are implemented this would be as good as Wikipanion.... an app viewed jealously by many Android users. I'll give 5 stars and 5$ for those features.
