    i know there is a couple of different apps for wikipedia. i've tried three of them and i think Wiki2Touch .50a is by far the best.

    - it never crashes

    - Very quick and easy seaching including suggestions

    - The result contains nearly all of Wikipedias features: Templates, table of contents, all sort of lists, references, and so on. You get any information, nothing is omitted or hidden.

    - Even if template support is enabled it's fast. Written in C++ this is a native iPhone/iPod Touch application.

    - More compressed articles database and extremly small index in one file. Saves space on the device.

    - Image support (if images are installed)

    - Easy installation on the device: Copy and ready!

    - Open source

    you can get it at http://code.google.com/p/wiki2touch/

    the 2gb wikipedia, offline, is horrible. the link repeatedly crash, sometimes they wont if ur lucky and yes ive changed the permission to various things. also everytime i would boot my touch it would be unresponsive to touch so id have to do multiple hard resets. id just stick to a web app. less hassles make up for accessibility
