Reviews From google play store

The window popped up asking me to donate. No problem, I always donate to Wiki so I clicked on "Donate Now". The result? Our old friend, "No apps can perform this function" pops up. Well Jimmy, it seems that your tech guys' continued determination to ignore this long standing bug that many people experience with the Android app has finally caught up with you. Will this make you finally address the bug? If you do so, then I'll be able to donate.


Was the nearby feature removed in the last update? It was my favorite part of the app and was what made it worth using over a normal web browser. Despite seemingly no longer having a great feature, the app itself is well made, with versatile UI both in look and function. I like being able to tap on a link and seeing a short overview without being taken to the page, and getting to choose from multiple themes is nice.


Wikipedia was and will be one of the best thing internet has to offer. But this app can be developed in many ways. Can't copy from the app. And should add dictionary mode to translate single word. Hope to see a better version than this.


The app is great but one star for removing it's best feature, the nearby function. It was removed on December 2019. Real shame.


This app is very efficient for gaining knowledge. there is given everything in depth and details. I'm very thankful using this aap. Whatever I need to know, always go through this aap.


It is one of the best and quickest manner of accessing information about any thing, person or place. Thanks to the compliers & google search engine for making this great resource available.


I've rarely give 5 stars to any app because I believe that there is room to grow in almost anything. However, Wikipedia impressed me with detailed information on almost every search I've made. I will have to say if asked from a friend that it is my favorite app to date. I've had some friends tell me they don't trust it because of the way people of any sort can just write whatever they want and it's incorrect in some cases. Well I read mainly for enjoyment and nothing I look up is life or death.


Surprised by how truly amazing the UI is, which is perfectly in sync with Google's own design language, and also the impressive range of available options. However, I can't visit my talk page, see my watchlist, etc, and I would really like it if some interesting articles from the Nearby tab could be customised to show up on my Feed. If any of these features are added, my rating will go up to 5 stars.


Nice explanation with deep thoughts and a lots of knowledge is contained in this. So I thought it is a very good app.


This app is amazing this app saved me. When I don't copy notes I find it here since I was fourth grade now I'm sixth grade and I always have an A+ thank you so much Wikipedia you saved my life in school


Hyperlinks open in the app just fine, and most content renders correctly. However, the search feature is frequently broken; I get a "cannot connect to Wikipedia" error even though articles accessed by other routes load just fine. Also, there must be a better way to embed large tables.


Ever since I've discovered this app, I tend to read more paragraphs on a page than expected. It's so much easier to read articles here. My only (not really a huge) problem, is that I think the randomizer only shows articles about America or generally about the west? I'm not sure but I've tapped it a number of times one day and never gotten anything about none English speaking countries. I might have to try again to check. Other than that, I love the app!


Major connection issues. Need to reload a page so many times for the app to connect to the wikipedia servers.


Broken. Nothing but "An error occurred" on every page


I love this app, but for some reason when I click on the link (blue underlined word), it shows the images in the incorrect order. It's very annoying, I hope this is fixed very soon. Also, it doesn't show the main articles for the pages anymore. FIX THIS!


The offline reading option is not working. Reading lists are showing as downloaded and even say for example "6 out of 6 articles available for offline viewing" and yet when you have no data or WiFi the articles won't load saying the are not available for offline. I have the latest update. Super frustrating


Perhaps single best app in the store. Offline usage, SD storage and great interface.


I don't usually rate apps so you can be sure that this is an honest review and in my opinion Wikipedia is the best. I love learning about new things and it has helped me a great deal in doing that. It is without any doubt one of the best apps on my phone right now and I will continue to use it. Absolutely in love with the app!🔥🔥🔥


Good app but still need to include the sorting functionality when it comes to tables of data. It needs to have the ability to sort by column just like the Wikipedia on desktop browsers. Also images aren't being displayed. It's just a grey box.


Lets you find information that you want but aren't sure how to look for. Lists and cross references are stupendous. The "current news" can greatly expand your way of thinking about whatever's going on. And the randomizer is just fun!


The app is fine when it works. However, there are times when it won't connect to the internet even though other internet based apps are operating just fine. During such times I can access Wikipedia on a browser, but not the app.


Was an amazing app now with the nearby feature removed no point in having the app. Better just to use the web version.


It is so helpful as it gives an easiness of searching educational concepts, In different study areas. 🙏🙏👍


If one has multiple (search) languages activated, it would be great if the Android app would remember which language was used last. Similarly to the iOS version of the app. Instead, the Android app jumps to the primary language every time one hits the search bar.


Make an option to don't store history and open tabs – maybe I don't need to use Wikipedia as another browser and just want to find info from time to time.


Great app to have, full of great information about the world. My favorite feature of this app is that you can save articles, in offline mode, just in case, you ever lose internet connection. Rock on Wikipedia!


In Chrome, when I click a Wikipedia article link, it doesn't open in Chrome. Instead, the app opens. But I don't want that. If I wanted to be in app, I would have been there. I want to be in Chome in Desktop view.


The app is too slow in loading... Especially when searching for stuff


Doesn't allow you to read the page's Edit history or Talk page. So practically only useful for reading, not editing.


Wikipedia is a Convenient Application that comes in Hand whenever you're Arguing with someone about a Fact or topic, and you need to prove them wrong by looking it up with this App. However, the overall Design and Layout needs some Improvement. Other than that it's Good to Use.


Truly amazing experience. One of very few free apps without ads which contains dark mode and amazing functionality. Love apps which make me curious of how the heck would I improve them... Almost ten years of android user, big salute


Very good interface. Very intuitive captions.


Saving for offline later does not work. In a reading list I will click it, then if I'm in airplane mode they won't load and will tell me to add to a reading list, which I have already done.


Why have you added the "run at startup" permission? I use this app infrequently and do not need it running in the background all the time. I can decide when it needs to run.


High quality browsing/reading experience in the app. Does multiple tabs well.


What's fixed? What's new? Openness & Transparency please. Lead by example and keep your "What's new" section on the Play store properly up-to-date.


Great app but since last update, when you jump to another link the "Read article" and "Open in new tab" buttons have disappeared and are just solid blue squares


Nice app. Would be good to incorporate a QR code reader.


very good app for me and all medical students and doctors who used it


Dreadful. Most internet providers have a block on editing and won't even let you open an account. Then they have the cheek to ask for money! Utterly beyond belief...


"Tap to retry." Even if i have internet. Always needs to restart just to fix this, which renders this app useless.


I hated it. Information given in app as well as at the website, can be edited. Content is often totally ridiculous and inappropriate. I'm never gonna trust Wikipedia again. It should be named Fakipedia and Stupid media.


Love the app! Great job. I wish there was something similar for Wikiquote (or that Wikiquote would be supported inside this app directly).


Everything works great except for syncing across different devices. Really hope to see that fixed.


The app lacks some basic features (like search within page). Almost better to read it on the website.


Well designed, rock solid performance, tons of information and all around a great app that is always on my home screen or recent apps


When I close the app using back button the tab which was opened should be closed but insted we have to manually swipe remove it, do fix it.


This encyclopedia is an invaluable enrichment for everyone. The knowledge you obtain by nothing but some time is very precious. And as soon as you grow accustomed to the language and the very convenient sturcture this will turn into an obsession. Pro Tip: If you are capable of understanding German, try the German articles. In my opinion, they are much more practical and better structured.


Love Wikipedia but hate the fact that on the app a lot of times photos don't show up at all and the app lags so right now it's kind of broken using Galaxy Note 10


Wikipedia is absolutely the best online reference. I spend hours reading articles on this app just for my own personal enrichment.


Great app, but I would love to save highlighted text and add personal notes for future reading


Good app for me and also for all learner's in world to learn new and many things around this world I appreciate this one ,nice and need more apps like this with new features in which we can knew many things thanks


I think this is one of the from best app on the Play Store. I never seen just type of app. I wish to give 100 star to this app.


When I open the login/registration page, the following error occurs. We're sorry, the Wikipedia app has experienced an error and was terminated. Would you like to start over or quit?


Very good app helps me when ever I can't find what I'm looking for elsewhere best of the BEST for sure.... mike!


When an app has over 406,000 reviews and less than 10% rate it less than absolutely perfect, you know you're doing something right. Good job, Wikipedia. And thanks for being the only site that hasn't fallen into the advertising bs. Like Rammstein on YouTube, what we get is what we want and nothing else. Kudos


Very helpful to identify persons or investigate accuracy of anything inquestion use to verify friend requests. Helped me to avoid and report scammers


Handy for all intellectual basic and advanced needs, for current and historical ideas. Indeed for everymoment.


There are not all topics covered in all languages . Try to cover all type of the topics are covered in all officially languages..


Wikipedia is like having the contents of every library in the world in your pocket, with the exception of the fiction section! Keep up the great work. I no longer have to truck around an 18 inch pile of dictionaries and encyclopedias. and atlases.


How can my IP address be blocked if I've never created a wikipedia account before? So I have to go through an appeal process to get it unblocked when I never had used it in the first place? Lame.


Idk why it's laggy when i opened multiple page, pretty sure it is very smooth on the ios version


I'm always fascinated by the depth, breadth and accuracy of wikipedia's articles and its ability to teach and open the world to me - the reader.


Always show a message said "Sorry app crashed last time"


Please try to redesign the UI. The app is excellent but there should be a change also.


My experience on here as both user and editor had been literal HELL for months. First of all, as editors we're already being supervised by REAL DICTATORS of administrators. And when I tell they they're dictators, I mean it. They scrutinize all your moves and soon as something doesn't go in the way they want, you end up being blocked. This is an advice for Wikipedia, review your staff for God's sake. This place is definitely not an encyclopedia but a whole authoritarian.


This application is one of the most useful application. It is really helpful in study.


Really solid and optimized platform for mobile, 5 stars.


Added integration with Android 10's system-level dark theme.


This is a wonderful application. It teaches very well. I love it.


Open in new tab function broken for the umpteenth time.


Full of bugs. Use the website instead.


Definitely need an option to be able to highlight important stuff for reading please I beg you😿


this is very useful app for any person you can download this app and rating 5 🌟 Wikipedia is the most useful website and app of the google


Best app for Students ,you can gain all information from it.it is just amazing😍😍😍😍.


This app is very helpful to all the age groups 👍👍 Install it and share your experience with playstore


The app loads quickly, and is easy to use.


Showing app has terminated and nor working


When we will be able to create new pages through app and do content translation?


Love this App, and thanks yo Wikipedia for giving us all this information on our fingertips.


Love this app tnx wiki this makes my works so easy


Great app everything is fine but in languages i need hindi as home language


Very good app and very easy to use


Love it i can research learn and comprehend what it says on every subject!!!!!


Not even able to creat a account. Procedure is irritating....


Developer replied with solution to my issue. Thanks!


The most informative and must hv app of all times.


I use it several times a day, invaluable resource.


Very good. Wish it would be more objective.


Still I am new to this but looks very interesting and fast to view about many things. A place to learn a lot.


Excellent in Content and Usage


It is a very good app for knowledge . It will give you every type of knowledge and you can also download your favourite topic .


App does not work properly any time I type something it results in a different thing


Excellent helpful for searching data anytime with best results thnks for this app


Now comprehensive and exhaustive.


After all — why not like the desktop version of the best open encyclopaedia?


One of the first three apps I installed onto my replacement tablet. Very very happy. 😀


nice, simple app! Always treasure information.


cool, but i can't find the option to change internal storage /micro sd.


Confusing if you're used to the webpage version but not too bad
