Useful. This is a good replacement for WikiDroyd, which has been abandoned by developer, and rendered unusable by some Kitkat phones. Although I don't know the difference between the 8Gb and 14Gb version of English wiki data. I chose the bigger one. Please add browse history or favorites option. And maybe bookmark. There's so many interlinked interesting articles. Need a way to mark them and go to them in next readings. Also needs an "Exit" button. Why only forward button? Need rewind button too.

Any fact, anywhere This is a great application. It runs well with 10gb wikipedia, giving instant access to the equal of a few hundred volume encyclapedia set. If as a child you liked reading encyclopedias from cover to cover, you will love this. I wish I could get a one or two paragaph popup preview a underlined link while you hold your finger on a link before jumping. I want this--with pics.
