    Tried it and all other Wikipedia apps, but I still prefer Quickpedia's UI and speed.

    Wikipedia has a well-designed mobile web site. Why bother with an app?

      Er, it couldn't be that this is also usable for other wikis like Uncyclopedia or Illogicopedia as stated in the article. Nope. I'm sure NOBODY would use it for those sites. Why not read the full article before commenting?
