Allmänt

Var kan jag ladda ner appen?

Du hittar appen i Google Play Store: öppna appen i din enhet och sök efter "Wikipedia".

Om din enhet inte använder Google-tjänster kan du kanske hitta appen på andra tredjeparters appbutiker som F-Droid till exempel, eller genom att ladda ner den senaste APK:n direkt.

Vad är skillnaden mellan Android-appen och mobilversionen av Wikipedia?

Wikipedia-appen ger en optimerad och effektivisera upplevelse för att söka och läsa Wikipedias innehåll. Då det är en ursprunglig app låter den artiklar att läsas in snabbare och med mindre dataanvändning. Den erbjuder ett mer responsivt gränssnitt som är mer konsekvent med andra Android-appar som du älskar. Den lägger till funktioner som inte är tillgängliga (eller möjliga) i webbversionen av Wikipedia, som att spara sidor till enheten för att kunna läsas senare och dela innehåll och bilder från artiklar på dina sociala favoritappar.

Hur donerar jag till Wikipedia?

You can donate at any time by going to the "More" menu in the main screen and selecting Support Wikipedia. Unfortunately we cannot currently accept donations using Google Pay, or using your Google Store credits.

I already donated; why I am getting asked to donate again?

Due to our strict privacy guidelines, we don't actually connect your app usage or user account to your donation history. This means you may see a donation request in the app even if you have previously donated on the web.

Do I need to be connected to the Internet to use the app?

You do need a connection to download articles, and to use the Explore feed. However, if you save articles to your reading lists, they will be available for later reading, even without an internet connection.

Vilka enheter stöds?

Vår app fungerar på alla Android-enheter som kör version 5.0 (Lollipop) och senare.

Från och med den januari 2020 slutade appen stödja enheter med Android-version 4.4 (KitKat) och äldre. Om du har en enhet som kör Android Jellybean eller äldre kommer du fortfarande kunna installera appen från Play Butik, men det kommer att vara en "fryst" version av appen som inte längre uppdateras med möjliga undantag för enstaka säkerhetsfixar eller kraschande buggar.

General features

Search

You can search Wikipedia from any of these locations in the app:

  • From the Explore feed in the main screen, by tapping the "Search Wikipedia" box at the top.
  • By tapping the "Search" icon in the bottom toolbar in the main screen.
  • While reading an article, by tapping the "Search" icon in the top toolbar.

  • Device-2020-10-26-094458.png

Search within an article

From the top-right menu (three dots), select "Find in page". You will be able to type text to search within the current article, and the search results will be automatically highlighted and scrolled into view.

Explore feed

The home screen of the app features a feed of recommended content for reading. Each "card" in the feed represents a single article, or a short list of articles, for you to read. The types of cards you might find in the feed (depending on their language availability) include:

  • I nyheterna: Artiklar om nuvarande händelser.
  • Populära artiklar: Dagens mest besökta artiklar (baserat på totala antalet besök).
  • Utmärkt artikel: Dagens utmärkta artikel på Wikipedia.
  • Utvald bild: Dagens utmärkta bild från Wikimedia Commons.
  • Fortsätt läsa: Snabblänk tillbaka till att läsa en öppen artikel i någon av dina flikar.
  • Eftersom du läste: En kort lista över förslag baserat på en nyligen läst artikel från din historik.
  • På denna dag: Historiska händelser på denna dag.
  • Slumpgenerator: Öppnar en vy som genererar slumpmässiga artiklar att läsa.
  • Idag på Wikipedia: Öppnar den riktiga "huvudsidan" på Wikipedia.
  • På denna dag: Historiska händelser på denna dag.

How can I customize the feed?

If you don't want to see a particular card in the Explore feed, you can tap the overflow menu on that card (three dots at the top-right), and tap "Hide this card".

You may also tap the overflow menu on any card (three dots at the top-right) and select the "Customize the feed" option, which will allow you to choose which types of cards to show, the order in which they will appear, and the languages for which they will be shown.

Reading lists and offline reading

To save an article for later reading, tap the "bookmark" icon in the bottom toolbar:

Device-2020-10-27-113856.png

This will automatically make the article available for reading offline, i.e. even when you are not connected to the internet. When you bookmark articles, they are saved to a default reading list called "Saved", but you can also create different reading lists of your own, and categorize your saved articles however you like.

Sidor sparade till en lista är tillgängliga offline som standard, så att du kan läsa dem senare. Om du inte vill att vissa artiklar ska vara tillgängliga offline kan du gå till läslistan och hålla in på artikeln. Du kommer då se en lista över alternativ för den artikeln, vilka inkluderar alternativet "Tillgänglig offline". Du kan komma åt alla dina läslistor genom att klicka på "Mina listor" i huvudmenyn.

  • Device-2020-10-26-094157.png
  • Device-2020-10-26-094227.png

When you are logged in to the app, your reading lists are automatically synchronized to your Wikipedia account, so that your lists will be restored if you install the app on a different device, or uninstall/reinstall it on the same device. Your reading lists will also be available if you log in to the iOS version of the app. However, at the moment your reading lists are not accessible from the desktop or mobile web version of the Wikipedia website.

Readability and themes

When reading an article, tap the "Theme" button in the bottom toolbar. There you will see numerous options, including:

  • Increase or decrease the text size for reading articles.
  • Change the color theme between Light, Sepia, Dark, or Black. (The Black theme is particularly useful for devices with an OLED display, since it will save battery power by keeping most pixels black.)
  • Whether to "Match system theme". Since Android itself now supports a light and dark theme, the app can automatically adjust to the system setting. If you do not want to match the system theme (i.e. if you want to use the Dark theme in the app, but keep the device in the Light theme, you'll need to unselect "Match system theme").
  • Whether to dim images. When using the Dark or Black theme, dimming images may be an additional benefit for distraction-free reading.

In-article conveniences

  • Tap the "Contents" button at the bottom (or swipe from right to left anywhere in the article) to see the table of contents for the current article. Tap on any section in the table of contents to jump to that section in the article.
  • Tap on references (superscript numbers) to see a popup that describes the reference in detail.
  • Tap any image to view it full-screen; pinch to zoom the image, or swipe left or right to view other images that appear in the article.

Redigering

General

För att börja redigera en artikel, klicka på pennikonen bredvid en avsnittsrubrik i artikeln. Note that some articles are protected from being edited by anonymous users or users with too few edits.

Artiklarna på Wikipedia använder sig av MediaWiki-formatering även känd som wikitext. When you edit a section of an article in the app, the wikitext syntax will be automatically highlighted to assist with formatting.

  • Device-2020-10-27-083912.png
  • Device-2020-10-27-085042.png
Måste jag vara inloggad för att redigera?
Nej, du kan redigera utan att skapa ett konto eller logga in, men observera att din IP-adress kommer att associeras med dina redigeringar och vara synlig för alla som läser artikelns redigeringshistorik. Please note that some Wikipedias disallow editing of articles in the Main namespace if you are not logged in.
Kan jag ladda upp bilder?
Inte ännu.
Kan jag se redigeringshistoriken för en artikel och samtalsidor?
Detta stöds ännu inte i appen. Om du rullar längst ner i artikeln kan du trycka på länkar till artikelns redigeringshistorik och samtalssida, som öppnar dessa länkar i din standardwebbläsar-app.

Suggested edits

If you are keen to start making contributions to Wikipedia, the app provides you with various types of editing suggestions, presented as a continuous feed that you can swipe through. Go to the main screen of the app and tap the "Edits" button at the bottom to see the types of suggested edits that are available. These include:

  • Article descriptions: Add short descriptions to articles that are missing descriptions. These descriptions are shown when searching Wikipedia on your desktop or mobile device, and in various places in the app.
  • Image captions: Add captions to images on Wikimedia Commons that are missing captions. These captions are shown when tapping on images in articles to view them full-screen.
  • Image tags: Add tags to images on Wikimedia Commons. These tags will be used to make images more searchable and better structured.

Contribution history

You can view your own contribution history by going to the main screen and tapping the "Edits" button at the bottom. This will show you the total number of edits you've made so far, your current edit quality (based on how many of your edits were reverted), among other statistics. To see more details about each of your previous contributions, tap on the statistics card. This will show a full-screen list of each of your edits.

Notifications

If you are logged in to your account, you can receive notifications about your account activity. These notifications will automatically pop up along with other system notifications in your device's status bar. The types of actions for which notifications are sent include:

  • Message(s) left on your User Talk page.
  • Another user thanking you for an edit you made.
  • One of your edits being reverted.
  • Security notices regarding your account.

To see all of your current notifications, tap the "More" button at the bottom of the main screen, and select "Notifications".

Device-2020-10-26-095349.png

To choose which notifications pop up in your system status bar, tap the overflow menu (three dots) in the Notifications screen, and select "Notification preferences".

You can mark a notification as "read" by tapping on it, and selecting "Mark read and archive". You may also view all of your archived notifications by tapping the overflow menu (three dots) in the Notifications screen, and selecting "View archived".

Troubleshooting

If the app does not seem to be receiving notifications correctly, please consider these suggestions:

  • Make sure that you are logged in to your account in the app. Try logging out and back in.
  • Make sure you have notifications enabled in the app. Go to the Notifications screen (from the "More" menu on the main screen), then tap the overflow menu at the top right, then select "Notification preferences". Make sure that the "Poll notifications" option is turned on.
  • Make sure you haven't denied the app to show notifications from the system status bar. Android allows you to selectively allow and deny notifications to be shown from any app that tries to show them. To make sure that the Wikipedia app is allowed to show notifications, go to your system Settings, then go to "Apps and Notifications", then look for the "Notifications" selection. This should show you a list of all apps that could show notifications, along with a switch to enable or disable notifications for that app. Make sure that the switch is enabled for Wikipedia.

Languages

Wikipedia content exists in more than 300 languages, and you can select one or more of those languages to be used in the app.

When the app is first installed, it defaults to the system language of your device. If you have more than one keyboard language installed, the app should automatically detect those languages and add them to its list of languages.

Ändra Wikipedias språk

To change the Wikipedia language, go to the "More" menu in the main screen, tap "Settings", then select "Wikipedia languages". From there you can add, remove, and rearrange your preferred languages. (Your topmost language will be used by default when searching Wikipedia.)

  • Device-2020-10-26-094542.png

Läs på andra språk

When reading an article, you can tap the "Language" button in the bottom toolbar to see other languages in which this article is available. (Note that not all articles will be available in all languages.)

Integritet och datadelning

Spårar appen mig? Använder ni min data?

Yes, some of your actions within the app are tracked, so that we can continue to improve our features. Sending usage reports can be deactivated by going to "Settings", which can be accessed from the "More" menu in the main screen, and unchecking "Send usage reports".

Vi har också en kraschrapportering för att hjälpa oss fixa buggar. Detta är separat från användningsrapporteringen. Om en krasch upptäcks kommer vi automatiskt skicka rapporter för att hjälpa oss hitta anledningen och fixa problemet. (Detta hjälper oss jättemycket!) All insamlad data är anonym. Du kan stänga av felrapportering genom att gå till "Inställningar" och bocka ur "Skicka kraschrapporter".

Device-2020-10-26-100018.png

Vilken information innehåller användarrapporter?

Olika sorters data samlas in, detaljer om exakt vad finns på sidan för händelseloggning. Den registrerar till exempel medelfördröjningen mellan att du skriver ett sökord och får sökresultaten, antalet gånger delningsknappen klickas eller när textstorleken förstoras eller minskas. Vi använder en tjänst som heter AppCenter för att rapportera kraschar i appen. När du väljer att skicka en kraschrapport till oss (vilket vi är ofantligt tacksamma för!) berättar den för oss var i vår kod som kraschen uppstått (via en s.k. "stack trace" över alla aktiva trådar) och annan diagnostisk information som Android-versionen och enhetstypen. Denna data kan inte användas för att identifiera dig personligen. Allt detta används för att förstå hur användare använder appen och hjälper oss att förbättra samt finjustera funktionerna som appen erbjuder.

Varför behöver appen identitetsbehörighet (GET_ACCOUNTS)?

Denna behörighet krävs så att appen kan integreras med ditt användarkonto på Wikipedia, så att dina läslistor och andra inställningar synkroniseras mellan enheter när du är inloggad.

Appen har inte åtkomst till några icke-Wikipedia-konton eller några andra aspekter av din identitet.
Denna behörighet krävs bara i Android-versioner äldre än 6.0 (Marshmallow). För Android 6.0 och nyare krävs inte denna behörighet.

Varför behöver appen foto-/media-/filbehörighet (WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE)?

Denna behörighet krävs eftersom appen låter dig spara bilder som du bläddrar till din lokala enhet. Det krävs även för att appen ska kunna tillfälligt spara bilder att dela via andra appar (som i Share a fact).

Denna behörighet krävs endast för äldre versioner av Android.

Varför behöver appen behörigheten för fullständig nätverksåtkomst (ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE, ACCESS_WIFI_STATE)?

Denna behörighet används av appen för att bestämma tillståndet och kvaliteten hos din nätverksanslutning och justera vissa aspekter av prestandan därefter (t.ex. läsa in bildversioner med lägre kvalitet på en begränsad anslutning).

Varför behöver appen behörighet för uppstart (RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED)?

Appen tillhandahåller en funktion som låter dig få meddelanden på din enhet om ditt Wikipedia-konto. Dessa kan vara meddelanden om artiklar som du har redigerat, meddelanden på din diskussionssida, tack från andra redigerare, etc. Detta kan aktiveras om du loggar in på ditt konto och aktiverar polling för aviseringar. Tjänsten som letar efter aviseringar körs i bakgrunden och behöver startas om sig själv automatiskt om din enhet är omstartad. Detta är varför appen behöver ta emot en händelse när din enhet startar upp. Om du inte har aktiverat aviseringsfunktionen kommer inte uppstartningsbehörigheten användas till någonting annat.

Är anslutningen mellan appen och Wikipedia krypterad?

Ja, all nätverkstrafik från appen genomförs över HTTPS.

Does the app require Google services?

No, Google Play Services are not required for the app to work properly. However, when they are available, the app will use Google services for certain features, such as push notifications. No user information or personal data is sent to Google.

Troubleshooting

I'm blocked from logging in or editing, what should I do?

If you have not made any edits to Wikipedia, but still find yourself blocked from logging in, creating an account, or making edits, it probably means that your IP address has been blocked, not "you" specifically. When you use your device on a mobile network, or on a shared WiFi connection, your IP address may be shared with many other users. These other users might have made unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, which resulted in blocking the IP address. Sometimes an entire range of IP addresses might be blocked, and your IP address might simply fall into that range. Also, public proxies and VPNs are generally blocked, too. If your IP address is blocked, try joining a different WiFi network.

Note that the Wikimedia Foundation does not administer the blocking of IP addresses; instead, this work is done by a global community of volunteers and administrators. For information about blocking and appealing a block on English Wikipedia, please see the information page at Help! I've Been Blocked.

My edits are being reverted / I disagree with certain administrative actions.

There is no central authority over Wikipedia. The Wikimedia movement is based in part on the premise that good articles are achievable through the checks and balances editors provide for each other. When editors disagree on how to achieve these goals, they must resolve disputes through consensus, drawing on the wider community where necessary. You can read more about the dispute resolution processes on English Wikipedia at w:WP:DR.

How do I report a typo or other error in an article?

Wikipedia is the world's largest encyclopedia that anyone can edit! If you see a typo or other error in an article, click the "pencil" icon or highlight any text and tap "Edit here" from the popup menu. This will show the wikitext of the article which you can then edit and save.

If you make lots of edits, we recommend you log in to your account, so that you can keep track of your work, talk to other editors and join the worldwide Wikimedia community.

I see vandalism in an article. What should I do?

If you see text or images in an article that are clearly vandalism, you can always edit the article by tapping the "pencil" icon to the right of the article section that contains the vandalism. You can then remove the offending text and publish the edited content.

Device-2020-10-27-083912.png

I see information that is biased or factually incorrect. What should I do?

If you see text in an article that may be incorrect, biased, or generally low-quality, you can join the discussion about that article on the corresponding Talk page for the article. You can access the Talk page by scrolling near the bottom and tapping the "View talk page" link.
