Hi. Tried using these 2 zim files on android 4.0.4 and encountered the same problem;
After browsing a while offline, the android app(v1.2 & v1.3) will open the web browser to go to the following address:
From then on, after restarting the app/rebooting the tablet, tapping the kiwix app will automatically open the web browser without giving user the chance to use the wikipedia app.
Only uninstalling and reinstalling will help. But it only lasts a while before the same thing happens again.
Is it a tablet settings problem? Or the zim file?
Eng with pictures works fine at the moment.
If the android app allows pinching to resize/zoom would be good also.
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
this is a problem which occurs (as far as I know only) with this ZIM file and only on Android. This is a bug in the ZIM file itself which is not pretty well handled on the Android version of Kiwix. So you are pretty unlucky :(
The bug is already tracked there:
I will release soon a new version of the ZIM file in Chinese (which is already too old). This new ZIM file won't suffer of the same weakness.
Thank you for you patience, in the meantime you should be able to enjoy it on your notebook or desktop computer.
