Updated This is a great app and useful when you don't have access to the Internet. But it loses the purpose if it's not updated more frequently (at least every 2-3 months would be good). Please, don't abandon this, it is/was a great idea.

Great concept but... Great concept but it's very out of date. Either needs to have frequent updates or the functionality to download a new copy of the wiki while online for later use...
