I'd like to view most articles of Wikipedia while I'm offline. I understand that it doesn't have to be or probably could be all articles, but a good subset would be nice.

if you only want specific pages, try Instapaper or Read It Later –  user6124 Jul 5 '11 at 11:00

I use the Wikipanion free version on my iPad and there's a Wikipanion Plus available that supports offline viewing. I'm happy with Wikipanion on my iPad and iPhone. Hope that helps!

AllofWikiOffline app is the best I have seen and has reasonable update pricing if your offline copy needs updating in the future.

+1 Because it is a great app... and happens to be made by former colleagues of mine. :D –  Dan J Oct 16 '13 at 20:21

I'm the author of an app called "Wiki Offline" for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Mac. It provides the whole text of Wikipedia for offline consumption (images and tables can be imported for individual articles if you have an internet connection).

It is a very mature, highly rated product, with experience enhancements like tabbed browsing, a read-later queue, bookmarks/folders, customizable fonts, etc.

The other two "competing apps" are AllofWiki Offline and Encyclopedia. I encourage you to check out all of them.

Wiki Offline

All of Wikipedia

How did you get the result running on an iPad? –  patrix Oct 16 '13 at 20:06
