    Articles ($4.99) is a Wikipedia reader for the iPad (and iPhone, $2.99). The application has a fantastic GUI (in real words, how the application appears). Articles allows you to browse Wikipedia articles, bookmark pages, view your Wiki history, as well as view recently-visited pages offline.

    wow, looks like a solid purchase. I do hope some of the revenue is making its way to the Wikimedia Foundation...

    I'd rather use Safari for free.

    The application DOES look nice, though.
    I also like viewing things offline. That would be useful in some scenarios.

    Does the app require a wifi connection or are most articles stored on the ipad? also, anyone check out the wikipedia web app? not sure if this app is worth it...

    Requires a Wi-Fi connection however you can view pages that you recently viewed offline.
