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):


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.


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.


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


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.
