impressionnant le très bon wikidroyd étant mort, recherchant désespérément un digne successeur depuis des mois, le voilà enfin et meilleur encore que wikidroyd. un régal. merci !! nb petit problème depuis la dernière version je pense lors de l'appui sur bouton retour l'application plante fréquemment. edit le 17nov 2014 : ce bug semble enfin résolu ! à voir à moyen terme si ça ne replante pas. merci. edit le 19nov, cela a l'air de bien tenir, plus de crash qui rendait l'application chaotique. super !

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy I feel like Arthur Dent. This is the best thing since multi-touch.
