The text is too small and there no new features like android

Breaks pages up into tiny columns that are awkward to the point of unreadability, and the pages scroll sideways instead of up and down. Text is tiny, too, and images are tiny and out of place. There are zero options for customization or changing the app's behavior in any way. There is also no way to edit pages. You can't even log in to begin with. I love Wikipedia, but this is an awful, outdated app. If only it were more like the Android or iOS apps.

Everything is great, except the text. The text is too small, hard to read

This would be a great app but the text is too small. This would seem like an easy thing to fix. In fact it seems like an error that never should have been.

With this app I can access Wikipedia contents without any browser.

Terrible compatibility on windows platform. Horizontal scrolling not OK. Font is much too small, virtually unreadable even on larger displays. Terrible user experience.

Words cannot explain the usefulness of Wikipedia, but the app is a disappointment. The font size could be bigger and also the app crashes sometimes.
