    I use Wikipedia everyday and donate regularly. This app is so useful, giving access to information wherever you are. * The current version seems to have developed an issue when trying to view an image - it returns a page not available message. This happens on all my devices. Please could you look into this.*

  2. Albert Zarifa-avatar

    This all could be a 5 star app, but in my opinion it is missing a very useful feature. I would love it if we had the ability to highlight and leave "post-it" on some parts. I use this app as an educational app to enrich my knowledge and learn new information. Only if I could highlight some words in the articles I read that would be great. Also, implementing this feature is not hard, simply have a downloads page, and add articles there. Then highlight in those "saved/downloaded" articles.

    Great app if you like to do research often. I've always used Wiki as a "jump-of" point for learning about something. If the facts need to be verified, I've already got the information to confirm, and very seldom have I been mislead. Usually it gives me a good starting point for continued reach whether online or at a library. If you like Wikipedia and use it frequently, or just like a quick reference for whatever, this app is much more convenient then using my browser every time. Light, simple

  4. Richard Craig-avatar

    I love this application and use it all the time to research my schoolwork. I donate a few bucks a couple times a year because they are providing thier services FREE! Hopefully it will continue as freeware because it is a rare thing to see someone concerned with education and accurate information! THANK YOU!

  5. Richard Howell-avatar

    WAS great app. Now no where near great. I USED to have around 60 to 70 articles on my reading lists. Just checked today, and apparently they decided to DELETE ALL OF THEM with a recent app update. Because just before latest update they were all fine. App is great for looking up info, BUT I can no longer trust createing what are essentially bookmarks for article I want to go back to, so it has rendered the aop useless to me now. And no way to get back.

  6. anissa ani-avatar

    Wikipedia. Great app if you like to do research often. Its give me a good starting point for continued reacg wether online or at a library. It has a very nice and compact design. I especially liked the many options of themes changing. Use it all the time!.

  7. Giomar Silva-avatar

    What happened to the map feature, where you could see Wikipedia entries near yours location? It was super useful when traveling, exploring different places or just venturing into a different part of our neighborhood. Why would you guys remove the feature that made the most sense on a mobile version of Wikipedia? Makes no sense.

  8. Gina Jordan-avatar

    Use it all the time! Actually tend to use search & then open results in app more because the app doesn't have it's own widget for that or I'd use it all day long. Still the best place to start a search. Can edit & annotate content easily in app, help with research & so on, or just look up info. Simple & easy to read, use.

  9. Jules Verne-avatar

    Has a very nice and compact design. I especially liked the many options of themes changing.... When combining the two- a super encyclopedia which is not so difficult to read (from a design point of view) and a beautiful comfortable design we get the best way to acquire knowledge in our days!!

  10. Awesome Guy-avatar

    Ok, I'm not sure why, but it doesn't show the "main article" subheading. For example, if a subheading says Filmography, it doesn't show anything. It should show the main article for that subheading. FIX IT PLEASE! Also everything on the table is aligned to the left for some reason.

  11. Tahj Shand-avatar

    Downright awful user experience. The mobile site is a cleaner and faster read. For example, the "summary" box under a person picture is missing. This box contains quick info like age, date of term, when drafted by a professional team. I'm deleting the app. LOVE the site though

    Ok for reading. For editing it is a poor substitute because as far as I have been able to determine it does not let you see the article history or its talk page. Furthermore, it does not truly sync with your full Wikipedia account in that your editing history starts at zero even once you log in.

  13. Elliott Savva-avatar

    Everything is good, except for a few flaws. Sometimes when you close the app and reopen it, it will reopen a page that you and closed a while ago. The other more annoying flaw is that it does not display the contents of wikimedia categories; you have to use the browser instead.

    None left without it's value.but only i need to mention is -- if i want to highlight one paragraph or a part of it , isnt there a way ?. Instead we can save whole page. But i need one line or two line. And now we save as we share it is a text and copy and paste in notes.

    I use the Wikipedia app site for a reference for a question about anything I am looking for. This Android app is always a good place to get the information for what I need to figure out my issues on the internet and Google play store mobile device apps for iOS version and Android device app.

  17. Lucas Carlson-avatar

    It's a good app! I like this app. It has information on the topics I'm curious about. It's easy to navigate between articles. But sometimes the articles are too confusing for the average person, like me.

  18. Shervin Ansari-avatar

    It's a good app for a good website but still can be better,for example I think it should has a list that you put your pages you want to read later and not download them cause it's getting heavy after downloading many pages...

  19. Ryan Cole-avatar

    New update is really nice. I like the fact that I can read about intresting stuff on my phone. Also, Wikipedia has the best lists.

  20. Jeff Sparky-avatar

    the thing that pissed me off is if you hold your stylus at the right side of your screen the side menu that slides from the right pops up when you don't want it to when you're trying to scroll. can't you put a button down at the bottom of the app and when you tap on it the menu pops up from the bottom?

    I love this app and enjoy it lots. I didn't face any difficulty in use. I love dark mode, showing content in side bar for easy browsing article, shot description or other Wikipedia pages. I love to about things and Wikipedia provide a very good way

  22. Austin-avatar

    Terrible the world's largest encyclopedia but we remove all informative information on our site. The style of Wikipedia is old and needs to be updated to be more modern and they need to stop deleting pages all the time if they should be trying to add more pages not remove them.

  23. S G-avatar

    Such a great app; I never realized how frequently I would use it until I installed it. So much better than opening Wikipedia in a browser.

  24. N B-avatar

    I truly love the wikipedia app, but suddenly the crowned feature, the Places tab, is missing from my version. This feature placed nearby articles on an interactive map. It helped me navigate new cities, and turned the world into a museum. I loved it. It's necessary. I can't for the life of me figure out why it'd be removed. A light has been lost in my life, hence the dim star rating. With it, it'd be 5 stars. Without it, only suffering.

  25. User UnknowN-avatar

    Easy way to read and understand I just like it But it would be better with much more images to imagine how it's look like or it like be.... Any way I'm happy with the app I'm rating 5 star

  26. Brian Scott-avatar

    I had been using my Galaxy S7 for the last 3 years and the Wikipedia app worked great on it. However, I am blind with very little vision and my S7 crashed so I replaced it with a Pixel 3a XL. Every time I try to share an article, I get a message saying "direct share not available". I'm trying to find information on this but it has just been a problem as to why I can't share anymore with Wikipedia? Can anyone help with this issue so I can share links through text, email, or even Facebook apps?

  27. Mikhail Golden-avatar

    I love Wikipedia for informational things, it's a godsend. But this app has a couple features missing from the mobile internet version: 1) previously clicked links aren't highlighted as purple — maybe an option can be put to show these. 2) Most importantly, on the mobile version the sections are all hidden, and to open them or close them you can click on them. This organization scheme is missing for the app. These two features really mean a lot, so it would be amazing if they could one day there

  28. --avatar

    The mobile app has made great progress in improving the UI in last few years and in some ways browsing and making small edits through this app is now more pleasant than using the desktop version.

  29. Lewy B-avatar

    A nicely designed app with a major flaw: it's sloooow. A wiki page that opens in 1s on my phone's browser takes around 30 seconds in this app.

  30. Curtis Wyatt-avatar

    Most of the time it doesn't load images. I have the setting enabled. I think it's related to the prefer offline setting.

  32. Eve Kohley-avatar

    i still have the 2017-10 version of the app because I'm on an older phone with jellybean. so recently it's been saying an error has occured whenever i try to load any page even ones i have saved. idk how that happened, it's sad that it's unusable, but it was a great app while i had it. the ui actually trained me for using firefox instead of chrome, which again i have jellybean & thereby became a safety requirement. thank you for your work, it helps the world.

  33. Irfan Ullah-avatar

    Hello Wikipedia, I have been using Wikipedia Android app since the last 6 months or so, and I have found the app very awesome; especially the article saving and the pop-up dialogue - when a link is clicked in an article - functionalities. But I would like to suggest an additional functionality of "highlighting text, sentences or paragraphs" in the Wikipedia mobile app. It will facilitate students, researchers and general readers to easily go through their highlighted texts in their saved artic

  34. Matt Anderson-avatar

    There is an issue with external links & lists & categories. This app is pretty good for the most part. I love offline reading, I love how easy this is to use. But, I often use categories from Wikipedia, but this app had removed all pages from Category:[Whatever] lists. It makes the app harder to use. As well, I often check out external links, to check primary sources, or just read original articles. But those links are either broken or disabled, and I can't change this feature in settings.

  35. Arpan Nath-avatar

    The app is great. I would, however, like to request an option to choose between serif and sans-serif font. Currently we've only sans serif, which is harder to read for large amounts of text.

    I really like encyclopedias at the palm of my hand. I've donated like 30$ in the last 15 years to show appreciation. Thanks wiki. However, this is to be used in conjunction with college libraries and local libraries. Not just standalone.

    There's this small bug where when I have only trending turned on, it says "there's nothing on the explore feed" even though I have trending turned on. It only appears after I tap on my suggested edits and then tap on the explore tab. Refreshing the explore feed doesn't fix it, signing out and then back in doesn't fix it, and reinstalling the app doesn't fix it. The bug starts with the first refresh of the explore tab. Please fix, thank you.

    I have been able to create an account. However, I had to use the apple app on another device to do so. Fix the android version so that it does not show an error to all usernames when signing up.

  39. Zac McCoy-avatar

    Too bad this ended paper encyclopedias, but it has helped so much. Great app, I love how I'm able to store my saved pages in a library of my own on the app. I also enjoy how there are multiple tabs.

  40. Rick McCombs-avatar

    I'd rather use a web browser. I like to use find in page a function in a web browser. I thought I'd try your app again but I still think I'd rather use the web browser.

  41. Brian Lenz-avatar

    On my phone, I find it better to use Wikipedia in the internet app than in this app. In the internet, you can expand whichever section you want to read, using the list of sections like a table of contents. In this app, each section is already expanded without a table of contents. I suggest inserting tables of contents like those on the desktop site or collapsing the sections.

    Was really good before I installed the new update (while enrolling for the Samsung One UI Beta). I am using the 4th beta release, and the app says "You'll be able to share with people here after you make contact in communication apps". What does this mean? This is the only app that tells this. Can copy the link, share on most of the usual messaging services.. only Android Beam, Facebook as newsfeed, Gmail, LinkedIn and Bluetooth transfer. Please provide a fix.

  43. Pug Pugsley-avatar

    The app is not as good as the web browser version, since the app does not show all of the info about a subject and is missing key links/heading to get to that info. IE: After searching for a television season, with multiple seasons, I was unable to go specifically to that season's page to see each individual episode, even though on the web browser version, there was a link by each season in the Season List Heading, which does not show up in the app version, therefore I will uninstall the app.

    I am using this app since some months and this app is best app for colkecting information. It gives full description about any content. I would give this more than 5 stars as it availabe me content in my local language also.

  46. Luke Langille-avatar

    It generally works very well! On one article, a table wouldn't display properly; otherwise I've had no problems!

  47. Josh Moga-avatar

    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.

  48. Bukurie-avatar

    I like this app because I can learn a lot of public figures,writters,physiciant,scientist,scluptors,painters,doctors,for NASA,a lot of information around the world.

    I love this app, but an annoying issue came in. When I was trying to sign up, it doesn't consider all of my tries of creating an username valid. I searched for inappropriate username characteristics, and yet, these usernames that I tried creating aren't even any of these. It always considers it invalid ALL THE TIME!!! Pls help me... Then I will give you five stars. Again, I love this app.

    The app does not display png graphics used on Wikipedia pages. (Samsung Tab S5e). They appear blank. Conversely, viewing in a browser shows the pictures. The app is unusable on this device.

    Experience shouldn't be optional been a sensible contributor. Wikipedia is an international encyclopedia of knowledge that impact positively in all aspect of life with outstanding branch well edited. Simply the best international educative publication noted globally with best remarks reserved with best record. Continuous assessment must be monitored with valuable update shortlisting new features accordingly for Usage. Endeavour to reserve a good note globally and continentally. Reserve the best.

    I really love this app. All the informations that I want to know is in here. And I love that you can read articles even when offline! This app deserves a 5-star rate!

    It’s a very good app. I can find what l want. It’s a very helpful app for book lovers and students. I can read my own language.

  54. Peter Thompson-avatar

    App is great and handy but noticed a bug. If you go to a link that is just another link the link is not shown. For example if you go to H.P. Lovecraft's wikipedia page and go to the bibliography part there is nothing on the app but when viewing via a browser there is a full link to the bibliography page. It seems to do this on all articles

    Removed Primary Feature. I used to love this app, I used it to discover nearby points of interest and to learn more about local history. This feature worked by overlaying Wikipedia information onto a map which you could interact with. When I looked up support and found related article it says that they removed this feature due to privacy concerns people had. Doesn't it make more sense to either toggle the feature based on allowed app privileges or even hosting a parallel app with this feature

    Quite Good. Sometimes pages do not completely load. So I resort to using chrome.

    In all Honesty , i could say wekipedia mobile abb is the best app ever. Do to the fact that is has tons of inforamtion. People have their view on "Wekipedia" but i love it!!!! People talk about they be changing the information. but, what people dont know is that information always changes, due to fact their is always new Discovery's around the world thats being Discovered. So far nothing bad about wekipedia, developers keep up the Great work👍

  59. Peter Jameson-avatar

    I'm sure that many good people would like to contribute articles, add to articles and add pictures and citations and so forth, but they cannot. Why? -It's just too complicated to do so if you ask me. The Wiki mark up language is a nightmare and was designed in the nineties and the so-called help pages are hopeless. People need to create and edit in plain text, and not have to learn a complex and obsolete mark up language for perhaps just one instance of editing or article writing.

    I would recommend this app, but my habit of going to the browser is so deeply ingrained that I almost never use it. If this isn't a problem for you, good job.

    I've Always Liked The WikiPedia, & Or Wiki Products In General! You Would Think With Now The 4 Creative Commons Laws & Configuration. You Should Be Able, Too Find Most Anything! All The Knowledge, That's In The WikiMedia, & The WikiPedia Knowledge-Base. It Makes Since To Me, & Being Non-Profit, You Would Think The People Making It Possible, Shorelly Had A Good Plan For Everyone's Best-Interest. And It Also Has The Abillity's Too Remember You, & Your Log-In Info., & With What You Was Working-On!!

    Please add listening text option also instead of just reading it and make the black theme just a little lighter or dark theme a little bit darker. It would be really great.

  65. Henry Twist-avatar

    Amazing app. Clearly a lot of effort made to make something that deserves its place alongside the website, without being a crude copy!

  66. Sun Sun-avatar

    Not useful for editing but for reading. Can't edit the full article but section by section in the app.

  67. Roman Romaniuk-avatar

    Recent update apparently killed most of the "Share" options! Huh!! I used to Share to Diigo all the time. Now I have four options, down from perhaps a dozen or more: Share to Messaging, Drive, Bluetooth (?!?), or copy the link to clipboard. Guess it's time to uninstall this app?

    Good, when you visit something it saves. But I also need a better offline version of this where I could browse without internet even if it requires too much storage if also possible

  69. s a-avatar

    Very good app for detailed information. But some pages like the books of Ruskin Bond are missing.

  70. Chris Botos-avatar

    i downloaded this app because a game called terraria, so i could browse through items quicker than on chrome. So tried "terraria accessories" and it comes up with non related bs. Ok, next i tried searching for Terraria .. voila, its there! i open it and clicked on the "items" external link .. it come up explaining what items are in general ... waste of space, uninstalled.

  71. Lisa-avatar

    Does what it's supposed to do. And it has a tab system like a browser which makes it easier to look at multiple different things. It's perfect for wasting time.

    Love the education vibes, I wish it lets you decide to make comments on each sections you read though will help the majority of people who decide to read the articles perhaps

    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.

  82. Prafful Bansal-avatar

    It's a very informative app of engaging regular readers. I just love it's UI. I am giving it 3 stars because it is full of bugs like it hangs sometimes! Please look into this at rhe earliest possible as it is ruining the experience.

  83. Gregory Mirza-avatar

    Cannot access Wikipedia by clicking the app icon. Can only access by googling an article and clicking the link. Only then does the app open

  84. Risal Tariq-avatar

    Fabulos app i have ever seen Whatever is asked is explained immediately You can save whatever article you want and read in free time this is the best feature

  85. jakanz-avatar

    The best way to access Wikipedia is through this app. It's a well crafted app, with very intuitive UI. However, since the last few updates, it's not been able to load images which obviously puts you off.

  88. ‘Murica 1776-avatar

    All of a sudden i literally cant search for anything. It was telling me that the search engine is busy. And now if i simply type a single letter into the search bar, even without pressing search, it gives me an error code.

  89. J Seth-avatar

    Has been increasingly glitchy over past several weeks, culminating in an error message when I type the first letter of search term. I cleared search history--no impovement. App will go to links when tapped, but search is now nonoperational.

  90. John Doe-avatar

    Not everything works as expected, so it's not perfect, but it's pretty pleasant user experience which pretty big of achievement, considering that this is non-profit, totally free, open source software.

    Before when my connection was slow, it opened pages without any problem, now it won't.

  92. Vish R Vaidhya-avatar

    As i feel many political parties' family which was correctly stated earlier are now wrongly edited. Example: Nehru and his ancesters info seems deleted/modified/updated incorrectly. These many days i and several others trusted wikipedia and other internet sources truely; which has been shattered now. UNINSTALLING this app and REMOVE WIKIPEDIA from my Home Page.

    Use this all the time but I cannot Log In as I forgot my password. When I click the Forgot Password link it says my IP has been blocked and cannot retrieve or reset my password. The Help Desk is useless. Wikipedia is always asking for donations but it is so user UNfriendly why would anyone give money to this mess?!!!

    unable to copy the link directly to clipboard I tried to use share, firstly share to the preinstalled note program, then copy the link generated.. it is too fussy! I hope a link-copying feature will be developed and it will get better!
