The Wikitravel database is complimentary, and additional databases including Wikipedia English are available for a one-off purchase fee. The app is the fastest and simplest way to browse Wikipedia. It works in a plane, on top of a mountain, in a tunnel, and when you're abroad. It's been featured in documentaries, and in publications like the New York Times and ZDNet. Encyclopedia also allows you to install multiple databases on your phone: you can pick from our supported Wikipedia, Wikitravel and Wiktionary databases.
