    The prime benefit of Okawix is that it allows viewing of photos unlike others such as wikitaxi. I'd like to give it a thumbs up; but since I couldn't get it to work, it gets a fail. Installing the app works fine. Instructions are simple, the UI looks easy enough and clean. You select the language then pick from a selection of wikis. Click download on the appropriate wiki, click install, then wait. Once the download completes it throws an error stating that it failed to load the "corpus." Then it vaporizes the whole download, even though I watched the file size grow over many gigs. I used both large and small selections to test; none worked. Okawix does not provide any way to import the 8GB (33GB uncompressed) wikipedia dump from Wikipedia. You can only get wikis via Okawix' built-in downloader. The app saves them in a proprietary .okawix format. Unsure if this is some index or what. Unlike other offline viewers, this does not recognize the compressed bz2 or the xml format. I extracted and changed the extension of the .xml file to .okawix just in case and pointed the "local corpus" there, but to no avail. He mentions in a blog response that he seeks to reduce server load due to the torrents; however if the dev supported users bringing their own dump (or supported it transparently), he wouldn't have to worry about any server load as much. In addition, adding other wikis, such as wikitravel does not seem possible. There is no user forum to ask for help. The blog has some responses to individual posts, but nowhere to bring up an issue.

    Das Programm ist zur Zeit noch in einer Anfangsphase. Hat aber Potential. Okawix is in a phase, where you cannot say whether it is good or bad. But in comparison to other Wiki-offlinereaders like wikitaxi: you're able to download images, it works on MAC, PC and LINUX. It is opensource. What you wish more? Yeah there are a few bugs and features that could be there, but who cares? Everyone starts as a child and the version of okawix is 0.7... i wait hungry for the 1.0 :D
