–Spectacular. Everything you could hope for in a Wikipedia App and more. With the ability to save reading lists for later, I can organize my nerdy tendencies.
-In the main, well balanced and factual – sometimes even quite enlightened.
-very useful and briefly informative app with reference to context
-Sync of creating list are nice.. I would like to see a sync of history too..
-I love Wikipedia, I use it more than any other app. However, lately I have found a few mistakes, mostly wrong wording and when I go to fix it, the editing is locked and you can’t fix it!! That defeats the entire purpose of the website! I understand people screw things up on purpose I’m sure, but that pisses me off that I can’t fix things that are wrong because “I don’t have permission.” tell people writing the articles to do a better job then. Otherwise it would have 5 stars.
-Extremely sluggish and downright slow lately. When I click on pictures they don’t open up at period, all I get is a black screen. I have a brand new Note 8 and this app is the only one that runs slower than molasses. Wikipedia never used to run this slow and it’s extremely frustrating especially since I use this app on a daily basis. Please, PLEASE fix this horrible problem ASAP and I will happily adjust my rating. Thank you!!
-Wikipedia is work that requires confirmation that the entry is indeed factual and reliably sourced; Therefore, I wouldn’t recommend wikipedia to those who are researching because the information may be not factual. I personally like Wikipedia. The volunteers do an amazing job editing, creating factual, interesting entries. It is However a hit and miss, requiring readers to have to confirm the source or information, especially with fake news and propagandists. I am not an intellectual, as evident by this unedited grammar review. I have read articles or entries that were later found to be wrong. It is like a web search that requires the ability to distinguish the false websites from the reliable sources Excuse unedited grammar and sentencesIt’s pretty much useful to me. Though the profile picture and more datum in regional languages should be included as early as possible. Because few are of the opinion to uninstall the app due to lack of information in regional languages.

-Really annoyingly it does not display lists. I always have to switch to browser to view lists.
-I previously commented on sluggish performance for large reading lists. The latest update totally fixed that issue, thanks! Excellent app.
-Please don’t load random entries at startup of this app. It unnecessarily takes more times, data traffic and computer power. And I can easily make a frustration when I use an edit box on the top of this app to search things after 10 seconds or more.
-To all the whinging morons be grateful to Wikipedia for giving us the largest encyclopedia available for free, so instead of complaining try and contribute towards it.
-Decent app but the tabs are a bit bothersome. They just pile up. I’d appreciate an option to disable them entirely.
-The awesome app I have ever seen I like this App really it helps me properly it is the best app in this world any education reader can search that things what he wants he can easily search by it
-Really a Great App. All I need is a feature of Collapsing Paragraphs with a main heading while Reading Large page ,same as it is when browsing through browser.
-C’est application est juste géniale ! Un acces à une culture générale garantie, une file d’actualité qui permet avec les hyperliens de se perdre un peu et d’en apprendre tellement, je recommande ! Une suite d’événements par rapport au jour d’aujourd’hui, ça nous permet de nous rendre compte de pleins de choses, je ne connaissais pas la Massacre de My Lai au Vietnam, et c’est parce que cette application m’a montré que le 17 Mars 1970 le pentagon a dénoncé les coupables, donc référencé dans le fil du jour… Vraiment c’est un gain de culture générale immense, Un aussi grand Merci aux développeurs et aux personnes qui nourrissent cette plate-forme !
-Awesome! Loved the layout so far, and the ability to see history from the global map itself. But It still has some articles missing like Ouroboros. Also problems creating an account in the app.
-A great easy to use and with clean user interface that you get used to very quickly. Also allows you to make folders to save articals if you are researching something on your own
-Love the app! Quick access to details of any subject any topic… Reduces the effort of gathering info by having to visit several websites over the internet… The diagrams for acedemic purposes are simply amazing!
-It’s been running slowly for a couple of months now. I wish they would fix this. It’s faster to use Google these days.
-IF I PLAN to send tew bhajans Stuti in Gujarati of my pwn ,do you accept? If yes how to forward you ?
-Love the ability to quick search words I’ve highlighted! Really convenient for a quick overview of anything you can think of. Offline reading is also great for those binge nights.
