WikiSherpa is a mash-up of Wikitravel, Wikipedia, and OpenStreetMap, the open-source world map. Use it to search and save Wikitravel destination guides to your phone, and plot all their sights, hotels, etc. on the map - even while offline - for free!
You can even download an entire snapshot of Wikitravel (and its associated Wikipedia pages) to your device for offline use, and offline maps as well.

Was great on my 3 month world trip. Saved info on phone w/ WiFi for offline use. Awesome.
It was fine for a few days then regardless of where I searched for there was always no result, even for major destinations
A wealth of information!
Very useful, what's the difference to the paid version?
no substitute for guide, won't let me edit locations even though my gps reports accuracy to 16 meters, needs offline maps
Great for offline access to WikiTravel, which is often my situation when traveling overseas. Interface is basic and a bit cramped.
Worked like a charm. It downloaded pages I didn't think I'd need at the time, but did actually need later.
Pretty useful but needs a nicer interface.
