Can't increase font size? Unbelievable!

There cannot be better way to surf Wikipedia than this app but on high resolution displays there is no way to increase font size. Unfortunately, increasing Windows text size disturbs everything.

Nice but missing some features...

Where is random article option? Layout of article is more like a newspaper & different from the website... Something that needs time for me to get used to.

Unfinished.

The app has problems rendering contents of pages. This is most likely the result of the decision to render them horizontally. Ledes for example are cut short and there is no way to view the rest of it especially if there is a sizable infobox along with it. Also, tables render poorly. The most glaring problems however are the lack of an option to log in and also the ability to edit any article.

VERY SMALL TEXT ON HIGH DPI DISPLAYS

The text is very small on high resolution displays and no options available for changing text size.

No option to adjust font

App is generally good, but lacks settings to adjust the size of the font and line spacing. With high resolution screen app displays very small text!

Needs font settings

I can't change the font in the Windows 10 app. This should be a basic setting. Can you fix this?

An e-Book to read and works great

Wikipedia is must-install app and works great on Windows 8.1 and it has a search control so that you can find anything you want with some clicks on your keys ... It would be great if it offered a sign-in option as well...

Please update this app to reflect a Windows 10 version

Also can we incorporate a scroll down feature and a text editor so we can zoom in and out and enlarge text and highlight text as well. Although still a new app. Very nice.
