Encyclopedia provides a complete copy of the Wikipedia encyclopedia on your iPhone/iPod. This app is the fastest and simplest way to browse Wikipedia on your device and crucially doesn't require any internet connectivity. It works in a plane, on top of a mountain and when abroad. (Or, if you're an iPod Touch user, whenever you don't have a wifi connection.)When you first launch Encyclopedia, you will be required to download a copy of the database which will occupy about 600MB of space on your device.For frequently asked questions, please head to http://collison.ie/wikipedia-iphone/faqFEATURES-No internet access required-Complete text of the French Wikipedia*-Instantaneous livesearch of article titles-Fully functional links between articles-Navigation trail, so that you can easily engage in the usual whimsical Wikipedia browsing.*Some parts of the articles that aren't very useful on a mobile device (such as references) have been excluded. All of the actual article text is preserved. In addition, only proper articles are downloaded - image descriptions, user profiles, etc..., are not included.
