Editing[edit]

Hi, any plans to extend the official version to allow editing? Kind Regards, Wolfgang Slany (talk) 07:49, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

Strategy Planning mentions this matter briefly but it doesn't seem a main focus. Jim.henderson (talk) 01:41, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
The 2.0 version of the app that we released today includes the ability to edit. :-) --Dan Garry, Wikimedia Foundation (talk) 23:19, 25 June 2014 (UTC)

Feedback[edit]

  • Is there a place for feedback on the app? I think the way it displays pictures is awkward. AgnosticAphid talk 18:00, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
  • There is a bug in the WikipediaMobile application (Ver 3.3.1) for the iphone. The Settings->Contact page refers the user to WikipediaMobile page that did not exist (I created the page in the interim). The Wikipedia Application Settings->Contact should refer to the Wikipedia_App page and not WikipediaMobile. Please merge any information from that page when the correction is made.Drankinatty (talk) 20:25, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

Security[edit]

The article fails to mention whether the app does all communication via TLS. Hopefully yes, but the article should say. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.103.55.85 (talk) 02:55, 23 September 2013 (UTC)

offline Wikipedia readers[edit]

Is there an article that discusses offline Wikipedia readers?

I see a few offline Wikipedia readers mentioned in this "list of Wikipedia mobile applications" article, and a few others mentioned at Wikipedia: Database download. --DavidCary (talk) 14:49, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia for BlackBerry is down for me[edit]

So https://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/105171/ seems to be the official Wikipedia app for BalckBerry. However I'm getting this error:

Unknown item
The requested item does not exist or is not available. (EC)

Please check it.

Windows Phone application[edit]

Hi people, the official windows phone application redirects to a windows phone store app where the author is not "Wikimedia Foundation" like in the windows 8 app... Are you sure that's the "real official" application? Greetings — Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.6.39.11 (talk) 15:20, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

official Windows Application isn't mobile[edit]

Hi Wikipedians, where can I ask for making an official Windows Phone App? I found Wikipedia-Sites where I can wish an article about some topic, but no site of the makers of the official Windows App.

It's also no mobile App; it's said in the Windows Store that's only available for PC. Shouldn't it be removed from this article? --Lesendes Okapi (talk) 15:57, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

Hmm, two years ago I was running the mobile Win app on my Dell XPS-10 tablet but I gave away that machine and maybe the app has been discontinued. Jim.henderson (talk) 01:17, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

iOS/iPhone[edit]

I was reading this and noticed it says iOS "also has read-only" or some such confusing language. Help:Mobile access (WP:IPHONE) says that the iPhone version allows editing. Not having an iPhone I won't be examining this myself, so I'd appreciate if someone could check and then edit the article appropriately. Wnt (talk) 00:34, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
