Native version rocks This is as good a mobile app can get. When is the ios native app coming out? The html5 version is very slow.

Dear Wikipedia, I always loved your app and it is the only app i use so extensively. However with new update and so many improvement, one thing that has been degraded is the way page looks after increase of font size. Earlier text used to fill within the display size, now after update i have to scroll the page to right/left to read the whole content, that is not cool. Earlier format was more user friendly. Kindly make the corrections on this front. 28/7 thanks wikipedia team...
