I often use Wikipedia for quick referencing as most everyone here. The App is definitely resourceful. Wiki on occasion asks you to donate on the website and I have in the past. What I would pay for though? If this App had an auto reader, and a way to make a playlist for what it could read, this would be epic. It would be great for driving, before going to sleep or just multitasking like cooking since Alexa will only read so much. It could be the alternative to podcasts. I always wanted an official Wiki podcast. The app feature would be even better.

Wikipedia has been a gold mine of unbeknownst knowledge for me. I use Wikipedia every day and have come to count on the app for unbiassed opinions on everything I choose to explore. Updated daily, maybe more than that, it amazes me how they do it. Keep up the good work to all at the Wiki company with all of your app. This is one institution I support monetarily annually.

I only got this app because I was sick of scrolling side to side to read Wikipedia. The app has the SAME PROBLEM. What is even the point of this app if it isn’t even formatted so the text all fits on the screen?!

The political information in Wikipedia is biased cured and protected by left wind administrators. No wonder they don’t allow Wikipedia as a source in schools in many countries. This is not balance and it does not allow diverging views to by put on for comparison.
