    I use this and V for Viki. Both are different but if you love wiki info then you’ve gotta get this. Gotta!
  • Great for visual referencing!

    An absolutely great visual interface to Wikipedia. Makes doing research so much easier. The only thing missing, that keeps me from giving five stars, is the ability to create and manage bookmarks in folders. (I happen to have more than 150 so far.) Being able to search Wikipedia using “visual” bookmarks would be even better! It would be great if I could use the new iOS Shortcuts app to create shortcut where I could send queries to WikiLinks (ability for Wikilinks to open to the result after being passed information from the clipboard, for example.)
  • Accessibility

    I have used this tool to help me communicate. Especially conveying to my wife.
  • The web of our connections

    Although, a infrequent nexus may be a bit contrived, the visual stimulation which one enjoys is the crux. Reading in landscape is so very satisfying. The app allows a small window/pop up to open on a long press. At that point you can do a quick read or, open the linked page. Wonderful addition. Especially useful on a “disambiguation” page for a quick but informative peek at an article. Overall, WikiLinks is the reference app of choice. Well done.
  • Helps a lot more than I expected

    I'm still wondering why videos won't play on this app. It was the app most enduring feature, could it be just my Iphone is old? Please fix & I'll give better rating.
  • Just a good app
