Good

Useful but the text is too small as if it is a pocket dictionary. Add some way to enlarge it and see clearly.

NOT A DICTIONARY

Not everybody has 2.0 2.0 vision! Wikipedia its self is great but it is no use if you have to strain to read it. Would appreciate it if there was an option to change the font size. Why not make it a more wonderful and relaxing reading adventure!

There are a few missing features

Very clean layout, however there should be a way to enlarge the text, change it to night mode, and turn the scrolling from horizontal to vertical

Its just great!

This app is pretty cool. The reason why I didn't give it the full 5 stars is because their is something bugging me about it. You see, sometimes I feel the need to zoom in sense I am using a surface pro 4. I think it would be very convenient if one could zoom in. :)
