PAY ONCE, GET TWO APPS
Wikibot is a UNIVERSAL app that includes both the iPhone and iPad version. Other apps make you pay twice but with Wikibot, you get two for the price of one!
Wikibot now uses iCloud to automatically sync your history and favorites between your iPhone, iPad, and iPod using the new iCloud (iOS5+). It can even sync to Wikibot for OSX (v1.52+)! Now you can literally have all of your favorite articles wherever you are!
Just like in mobile safari, you can have multiple articles open at the same time. Switching between tabs is fast and you can even open links in new tabs by pressing and holding on a link.
The display is customizable to give you the best reading experience. You can easily change the font size, the font type, the margins, the color scheme, and even the brightness of the articles.
Easily search Wikipedia in 36 different languages. Effortlessly jump from the English version of an article to the German version, or any other combination!
FULL TEXT SEARCH
Not sure which article to search for? No problem! You can now search Wikipedia articles by article title, or by the full text!
To activate the in-page search bar, click the action button (looks like an arrow). Works on both iPhone and iPad!
Wikibot provides a beautiful visual history of the pages that you have browsed. An image from each page is displayed, with the title below it. What an engaging experience!
BOOKMARKS AND FOLDERS
Save your favorite articles as bookmarks. Create folders and neatly arrange your bookmarks.
Sometimes you're reading an article and find great links that you want to read, but you don't to interrupt your current article. What do you do? Simply press and hold on the link to add it to your Read-It-Later queue. The article will be downloaded in the background for immediate access when you're ready.
Tap any image to enter gallery mode and see a larger version of the image and its caption. Swipe left and right to browse the different images in an article.
