WikiMe App Reviews

Good idea

Need to resolve screen redraw glitches and not enough sexy interface

Nice - but.

It is a nice app and very usefull but without landscape mode it is not very comfortable to read the wikipedia websites. Landscape-mode should be implemented for every web-service in my opinion - and of course a button: visit in safari.


This app really surprised me in terms of its ease of use and intuitiveness. It found my location instantly and popped out around 30 local spots with links to the articles within the app itself. I love the map feature (though its a bit sluggish), the picture icons next to each location, and the ability to specify the search radius. Good god man, get this app! Steal for .99c!

Good App

Useful, stable, works well, in Canada just use first 3 letters of postal code. Easy to use, it would be interesting to see if this apps GUI could be used to tap into other databases besides wiki.

Very useful and user friendly

Very useful and user friendly application. Works great in the GVA (Greater Vancouver Area) here in Canada.

Good app!!

This app is awesome!! I changed my review from 1 star because the update fixed the bugs it had and these guys seem to be dedicated to making their app better. Good job!


Great idea but it wont find my area!(Edmonton) Can you fix this?

Much better

Fixed iPod touch issue quickly. Hope to see a few more changes to the wiki display options. Well worth the money.


Cant find server,totally useless

Not working

Are they still in business?

日本語未対応!Please do early for Japanese!

コンセプトはなかなか良いです。旅行する時、便利そうです。早く日本語対応してください。お願いします。 The concept is quite good. When traveling, it seems to be convenient. Please do early for Japanese. I hope.

froze upon opening

Upon opening the app, it froze every time. Couldnt scroll, couldnt tap links, etc. Waste of 99 cents.

This is a great travel app!!

Not sure why this isnt more popular?? The ability to see a list of noteworthy sites and towns, neatly ordered from your GPS location, is really fantastic! It leverages Wikipedia in a very useful way. This is your portal to a free, community generated travel guide. One suggestion would be for the links to open in a more mobile-friendly version of Wikipedia, of which there are several. 5 stars from me!

Like a neighborhood tour guide and historian in your palm

This is great!!! If you live in a area such as NYC, dense with interesting locations and rich history, this app is fantastic. Walking around your own neighboorhood or exploring somewhere else, the history and trivia of the area automatically bubble to the surface--many of which I never would have known to look up in Wikipedia. That armory building in my neighborhood, for example: Ive walked past it for years, even wondered about it, but now I know its role in the Civil War, the architects, even which movies were shot there. Id love to see something similar with Emporis (buildings, architecture, photos), and NYC Songlines (block-by-block history and trivia). I would have given this 5 stars, but like many apps with embedded Safari, there is no landscape mode, making the Wikis hard to read. Thankfully, zoom is supported, but even zoomed to fit, the text is tiny. Awesome app! Thanks!

Nice App, Needs Mapping Feature

overall a decent application for the price, but would be dramatically improved with a function that would allow you to see the landmarks on a map. as far as i can tell, it only tells you how far you are from the landmarks....

I like this program

This is actually vey useful but then I like wikipedia. I just wish it had a back button instead of having to search each time you want to go back to the previous window.



WikiMe - Sometimes Great sometimes Not

A brilliant idea. It worked great when I first got it, but now more times than not it never pulls any results back - just a spinning icon. Not sure if this is a problem with the application or with Wikipedia, but better feedback on what is going on at a minimum is essential.

Great Concept

With the newest update, the "find local wikis" feature works perfectly, and I love it. I work in Hollywood, and its great to check out the app when Im out for lunch, or in a new part of town waiting for something to happen. Wikime is a great way to gleam historic and trivial knowledge of all the things that are right under your nose. Completely worth the $.99 admission fee. (Original review for version 1 below) I am yet to get this app to work at all. All I get to see is a white screen, and a spinning "loading" icon. Some people are saying that it only works over wifi, but that kind of defeats the purpose. .

Good app overall

This is a pretty good app overall. If more articles are eventually GIS coded on wiki it will be truly great!
