Best Wikipedia App for iOS

Thought I would start sharing some apps I use on a day to day basis.

Wikipedia is a great online resource that may not always be 100% accurate, everyone uses as the first call for research of any kind.

There are a fair few apps available to access wikipedia on iOS devices such as the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. There are a couple of options available, these are just the ones I have looked at (there are tons more):

Articles

This one is the best! It’s won design awards and is really simple to use. Better still, it has some neat features that make it quite intuitive and speedy as a resource. iPad and iPhone (& iPod touch) versions are available.

Wikipanion

Very similar to Articles, with some different features but I don’t think it is as good. I used to use this, there is a really good free version and is probably the best option if you don’t want to spend any money.

Wikipedia Mobile

The official wikipedia app – it’s ok but nothing to write home about.

Wikibot

Nice little app, different to the rest focussed more towards pictures. Definitely worth a look.

Wikamo

Horrible icon – but provides basic wikipedia access. Lacking in features, and hasn’t evolved much since it came onto the app store with the original iPhone.
