Content Packages

Our content packages (aka zim files) are exact copies of the best free content available on the Web to use offline: Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Project Gutenberg, and many more coming every month.

More than a 1,000 files to chose from, in 100+ languages!

Custom Apps

Our Custom Apps combine a specific content package and a reader into one easy to install app. Wikimed, the medical encyclopedia, is the best known.

Custom Apps work on iOS, Android and Windows devices.


Kiwix-Serve is a ZIM compatible web server: it allows you to deliver content over the HTTP protocol within your local network.

Simply start Kiwix-Serve on your machine, and your content will be available for anybody through their web browser.


The Kiwix Hotspot creates a local WiFi network to distribute content. This solution is especially useful for schools, libraries, and humanitarian organisation who need to scale without having to install software on everyone’s device.

No download needed on the user side.
