* Check out our initial blog post to see more of our reasoning for releasing apps.

What is the difference between the apps and the mobile web version of Wikipedia?

The Wikipedia apps provide an optimized and streamlined experience for searching and reading Wikipedia content. Being native apps, they allow articles to load faster, and with less data usage. They also delivers a more responsive interface that is more consistent with other apps that you love. They add features that are not available (or not possible) in the web version of Wikipedia, such as saving pages to the device for later reading, and sharing content and images from articles to your favorite social media apps.

Download the Apps

* Get the Wikipedia iOS app from the App Store.
