In 10.8.2 all you get is a spinning BeachBall. There as been trouble with this app from Day ONE! It consistently has problems. Very unreliable and should be avoided!

I might be wrong, however, it seems like Safari (or any other browser) does almost the same with on-line Wiki. Search, bookmarks, languages switch etc. Too few unique options to persuade me to purchase. Plus it's AppStore-only, even at $.99 I don't like to purchase blindly.

Now it is $1.99 already - as stated on the App Store "Wikibot is on sale for limited time to celebrate the app store launch!" - nice sale price, jumping from $0.99 to the "limited time sale" price of $1.99.....
