"Wikipedia directly in your smartphone"

Reviewed by / Jun 27, 2011

Search for things in a easier way

This application allows you to access to Wikipedia directly and easily from your device.

You can start by setting your language (from more than 30 different ones) and your text size. The app will remember your preferences the next time you open the App. It's also possible to select and copy text.

However, not everything is perfect; the app doesn't have page history and every time you have access to it, it returns to the main page, which can be pretty annoying if you didn't finish reading the entry.
Besides that, Wiki Encyclopedia is a really useful app, perfect for having in your smartphone and much easier and quicker than having to use the Internet. Additional features such as Voice Search are also included.

This application was developed by Wiki apps, creators of other similar apps and the paid version of this one. Be sure to have it in your smartphone!

    I liked the older version much better. I have switched to a new wiki app because of it.

    Having to pay to save and access documents that are otherwise free is low to say the least. If you want a FREE offline reader do not download this app.

    It has everything open at once which is frustrating when you don't want to page through everything just to read the final page.
