How about having the whole of wikipedia on your iPhone/iPad? Then get ready to clear some space on your iPhone and spend some money on the app. All of Wikipedia is a offline wikipedia reading which doesn’t skimp on anything – content, user experience and money.
The app costs $8.99, needs 3.86 GB space (english version) for the dump,and then will make you the king of information. The application have to be downloaded over WiFi. After the first download the first update you might need will be free. Post which you have to pay $1 for every update. The updates typically happen once in a month. I am sure you can live with 4GB of content for at least an year. Even if you spend $1 per year, it would all be worth. Imagine the savings you will get from the offline reading instead of reading it online. I heard all the 3G providers in India are charging like crazy for providing patchy service.
Is it for everybody? Probably not. It depends on individual priorities. If you are a curious cucumber who wants to know about a dish someone just mentioned or a place someone has been to, then this app is for you. Yes it is $8.99 but that is what you pay for quality products, including iPhone apps. Get this, Briallintish the maker of the app will answer every single mail you send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This would be the best app for someone who owns a iPhone but is on a lousy 2G network.
Go ahead. Hit the link. Buy the app. Quench your insatiable appetite. Surprise everybody.
