Encyclopedia provides a complete copy of the Wikipedia encyclopedia on your iPhone/iPod. This app is the fastest and simplest way to browse Wikipedia on your device and crucially doesn't require any internet connectivity. It works in a plane, on top of a mountain and when abroad. (Or, if you're an iPod Touch user, whenever you don't have a wifi connection.)

When you first launch Encyclopedia, you will be required to download a copy of the database which will occupy about 200 MB of space on your device.

For frequently asked questions, please head to

-No internet access required
