I love the website but I don't understand the interest of the app. The main thing I was looking for was the capability to consult wikipedia when offline. This would of course require some synchronization ability too.
As it stand it is not even as good as the website as I can't visit equivalent articles in another language

Love the app. It would be better if it support mire languages like español (Spanish)
A greatly flawed app

You're much better off using Wikipanion.
Why the low ratings?

Here is an app that rearranges Wikipedia to be readable on the iPhone. It does everything I need.
Great Reference App

Really happy to see the history function, but I also want auto-complete and multilingual support.

FAIL! Use Wikipanion! This app doesn't have any of the features that just seem to be expected such as the features wikipanion and others offer.
Great! And it's not the final version!!

This app has ALOT of potential! In future versions I would like to see predictive text and search sugestions if I mis-type something. I like how this app has less features than wikipanion. I never use alost any features of it other than searching.
If you keep this app nice and simple, add predictive text and search sudggestions, and maybe improve the speed(which isn't too awful bad slow), then this app will replace wikipanion on my phone and I will rate this 5 stars!

Needs a major face lift.
Too sluggish and needs work.

I know people are ranting that it's not an "official" release but why release something when it's not finished? It runs extremely slow and it crashes a lot or freezes. I'd stick to Wapedia. It works great.
No multilanguage search?

I am going back to Wikipanion due to one major drawback with this official Wikipedia app multiple-language search.
Wikipanion lets me search for Japanese terms as well as English without a separate interface. I expected Wikipedia to have a similar feature as it was supposed to be able to compete with the front runner. That apparently wasn't the case.
I'll stick with the online mobile version!

Long way to go from 0.1 to 1.0. Sluggish response to searches. Need email forward options. Images do not re-size.

Needs A LOT of work

I was very disappointed with the official Wikipedia app. First of all it is very slow. Even on an iPhone 3GS, it takes considerably long to load. Secondly the user interface does not match the iPhone OS's UI at all, it makes it feel cheap. The articles also load very slowly. There are a considerable amount of bugs and a serious lack of options as well. I would like to be able to adjust the font size, adjust the size of the pictures, etc. The only redeeming quality is that this app is free, so it is not a huge deal to just delete it off of my iPhone because that is exactly what I am doing until a serious update is provided to fix all of these issues. Of all my apps, a Wikipedia app is probably what I use the most by far, so I need one that is fast, reliable, looks great and gives me more options. Skip this app and go with iWiki which is the best wikipedia app out there so far.

It's about time they made an app and got it inthe app store. Didn't think it would happen. Been waiting a long time.
