- Editing: You can edit Wikipedia! Logged in or logged out, we thank you for all your contributions.
- Recent pages: We provide you with your reading history, so you can tap as many links as you like without ever getting lost.
- Saved pages: You can save select pages for offline reading and browse them even when you don't have a data connection.
- Nearby: Learn more about what's around you by getting links to articles about things that are near your current location.
- Share: Use your existing social networking apps to share in the sum of all human knowledge.
- Language support: The app allows you to seamlessly switch to reading Wikipedia written in any language.
- Table of contents: Jump to article sections with the Table of contents button (three horizontal lines button)
- Wikipedia Zero: Data charges waived for participating mobile operators.
