Encyclopedia provides complete copy of the German Wikipedia encyclopedia on your iPad - meaning no internet access is required to search and view articles. This app is the fastest and simplest way to browse Wikipedia - and it works in a plane, on top of a mountain, in a tunnel, and in other countries. (Or, if you have a WiFi-only iPad, anywhere without Wifi)

When you first launch Encyclopedia, you will be required to download a copy of the German Wikipedia database, which will occupy about 1GB of space on your device.
