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 paid 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!

Some lists where this application appears: Reviewed by Anna Grace.
I purchased the offline database and found many articles are missing. It's the sole reason I purchased it.
For less than 2 bucks you get knowledge at you finger tips.
Long start. Expensive offline data packages. Really bad formatting. All links inside offline database lead to online articles. It's 2013...
I've been supporting Wikipedia since day 1 so please hear me and change
