Why would one want to pay for a copy of Wikipedia? Wikipock is faster than waiting for the web version and it does not need a web connection.
Could do with a big facelift. Layout poor. Copy interface of wikipanion on the iPhone (including the ability to queue) and you're onto a real winner!

OK, turns out one has to download the dbase on a computer and then transfer from there directly to SD card.
