Really stable and optimized for mobile
There are some things that either miss or are not scaled properly.
Love the app, always have! Only complaint is I can't access my reading list since the last update!
Great but ...
I give this app a thumbs up but I am unable to download the images which are supposedly downloadable with a touch of the Download button. Instead the phone gives a notification of a download named "". Using android 4.4.2
Wikipedia Big Fan
I use Wikipedia all the time. Make a Point to Donate every year. Have You Donated Yet?
Wikipedia really got better with every update :) However, saved pages don't save images contained inside the page. Hope you can address this issue in the next update
Contrary to other apps, Wikipedia got better and better. Thumbs up for the material design UI too👍👍

I can't understand why the incident in Istanbul which has occurred couple of days ago is still appearing in my home page of Wikipedia with some other old news. This is really bad with no immediate up to date news facilities!!! I gave 4 stars but this app does not worth it even, I guess!!
Must have apk for net fanatics!!
Wow! I love this app because I can now read quality articles without using bundles... Nice work Wikipedia! Keep up!!!!!!
Didn't know what I don't know.
Accessing the Wikipedia site is easier and so handy to save entries for offline reading. Learning something new everyday. Keep discovering that there are a lot of things to learn about that I had no idea I would be interested in. The more I use this app the more find I didn't know as much about some subject as I thought I did, and now I've become insufferable and even more of a "know it all" that doesn't know enough. Want to see a more layman's way to submit info into articles, as I find it confusing.
Looks great and works well, but needs text-to-speech support & "read later" functionality.
Knowledge is power and some people - like myself - spend a LOT of time reading Wikipedia articles... This powerful application brings the entirety of Wikipedia to your mobile device, optimized for the screens of mobile devices and with powerful functionality (such as the ability to save articles for offline reading). I use this application extensively and it is incredibly easy to use, but I wish this supported text-to-speech, for use in the car... It'd be great to some sort of "read later" functionality.
Add an option for saving the saved articles list for future use
Nothing suffices the glory of this master book of knowledge but a small addition to its app version would definitely add to its comprehensiveness. If someone uninstalls the app all saved articles also travel into the void, thus, a fix for this by saving or syncing the saved list with either the Wikipedia account or a Google account would be quite awesome! 😀

I would love to be able to sync lists. I hate having to manually input articles when resetting my phone.
Sometimes it is slow asf and generally takes time to open pages. It would be highly preferable if it didn't redirect you to the top of the page when you reopen the wikipedia window. And it'd be better if it wasn't available to *anyone* to edit the pages. This lowers the credibility of the information you exhibit in open articles.
I hope this app will be very good.

Productive as always but new update has glitches
The front screen vanishes and doesn't appear. Only screen I get is the article screen n search. If I'm unable to reach front screen how can i read my readlist. Because there is no such options in article screen. Please fix it and either merge options so that accessibility get easier or fix bugs.
Just superb....... No other explanation needed...... It's great now we can use our desktop profile for Android too.
I like it
But the starting look is not as good as it used to be(
Ever since i got into Wikipedia, i stopped reading books and playing video games and watching movies/tv. I always get distracted and want to research a topic mentioned in a movie/game/tv show. With this app its much easier to read articles without the lag and data consumption of a web app.
CAN'T BE WHACKED
I am constantly winning pub quizzes thanks to sneakily using this app on the QT.
Cannot save images offline.
When I read articles offline, so many images cannot be seen!
Blew my mind. Thiz iz the best app I've ever used. More E/I apps should take a look at this app.
Looks Very Well, Feels Very Light and Makes Very Rejoiced.
I love this App very much. The live feed is an attention seeker and the rich feel of the game content leaves you mesmerized.
'Every details we can get from wikipedia. It is a source of knowledge
Such improvement. much fluid. wow
lacks one major feature though, sync of bookmarks across devices
Awesome & very useful
Yes, I liked this app bcz it's gives fully description what u want to know , helpful for readers also...
After the July update, my Wikipedia icon just disappeared. I had to reinstall it. But it's a great app. Only app I find useful in the Google play store.
Look shit up
Need to be pseudo smart really quick? BAM! Wikipedia app, bitches.
Wikipedia - Mobile pocket dictionary of everything!
No-one today should lack access to Wikipedia be it from computer or mobile device as it offers a detailed and explained view into every aspect of life through eyes of everyone everywhere.
A great app with good functionality. However would appreciate it if you guys could add a phonetics section (for the ease of pronunciation of words) under the "define" part where you select a word and the definition pops up.
Great for saving Wikipedia article offline as chrome fails to expand text in offline pages. A bug I encountered was that clicking on citation numbers doesn't take you to their link in references list instead the #link opens in browser where it doesn't load. Kindly fix this feature in next update.

Best Informative App!
Wikipedia is hands down the best information app ever. The material design makes it a lot more pleasent to use as well. Props to the developers.
Convoluted randomizer: need to go back to main screen to randomize again. Should be able to randomize from an article page. Other than that, brilliant work guys! You people rock!
