APP OF THE DAY: All of Wikipedia - Offline

A way to solve information-related arguments no matter where you are

All Of Wikipedia - Offline
Cost: $US8.99 | Developer: Brilliant(ish) Software | Platform: iPhone, iPad, iPod | Version: 1.5 | 2.7 MB for app itself but database can be up to 4GB |

Ever gone through a tunnel the train while trying to load an informative page from Wikipedia to settle an argument?

If your answer is yes, and you have a spare $US8.99, you might want to invest in All of Wikipedia – Offline.

The price is, no doubt, a bit steep for something you can access free online. But if you’re a Wikipedia junkie with a Vodafone connection, chances are you would have had page-loading or cannot-open-page rage at some point.

The app boasts that once you sync your iPhone, iPad, iPod with it, you’ll never need a connection to have every single article on Wikipedia, although pictures with articles will not load unless there is an Internet connection.

Users will have to make a one-off download of the database. Depending on which language you go for, it can be up to 4GB. Yes, that is a massive download but the app developer said it had not skimped on the finer details including table of contents, links and redirected search terms.

All Of Wikipedia will also automatically update latest articles once an Internet connection is available.

The app supports a number of languages including English, German, French, Spanish and Russian.

Pros: Can be used without an Internet connection, comprehensive Wikipedia database, includes links within articles, fantastic layout

Cons: Expensive, have to download large database first

Verdict: A good app for Wikipedia junkies.
