    Jesus christ, its a 2GB file.
    Think how long installer will take.
    I'm going to try to manually install it so I don't mess up my iPod somehow and will report back.
    I don't think I'll keep it though, 1/8 of my iPod filled with files I won't use...

    Why not use it? I think it is the perfect add-on for the iPod Touch. This is perfect for the iPod Touch and the fact that you don't have Internet all the time. There are so many occasions when I'll need this app.
    Talking to your friends about something....suddenly your not sure, was that event 19whatsoever or 19soso? Just pull out your iPod and look it up!
    Amazing! I was stoked when I first saw that this project existed at few places in the web!

    It depend how good it is.
    How recent is the "dump" file with Wikipedia?
    It doesn't show up to date info.
    If I need room for more of my media, I'm going to most likely delete wikipedia.
    Of course I might use it once in a while once I'm bored, but sometime or later it's going to get used rarely like some applications.
    Although it'll be a long time till I need more space for media, since I still have 1/2 of my empty storage space.

    I've tried this and just can't live without it.
    The dump file is as of October 2007 (English).
    There are sometimes that it crashes, but it works well.
    I installed the dump file via Total Commander (USB) and it takes no more than 30 minutes for 2 GB. A lot better than Wifi (estimated to take 12 hours.)
