Free Kiwix Reader provides offline-information for emergency situations

Kiwix Reader

Kiwix Reader is an app which lets you easily store whole websites (text and/or video) on your computer or mobile phone. By doing so, you can access these websites later – even if you don’t have an Internet connection.

Kiwix Reader is free to use. It is available for all major operation systems: Windows, macOS, GNU/Linux, Android, and iOS.

Kiwix Library

The Kiwix Library provides a broad selection of ZIM packages with informational and educational content in many languages. You may download them for free and share them with others if you like.

Please note: While it’s possible to download these content packages directly from the website, we recommend that you use the download function within the Kiwix Reader app which is generally more stable.


Customs Apps combine a specific content package plus the Kiwix Reader into one easy to install app. They are available on iOS, Android and Windows devices.

For example, the free WikiMed app contains 50’000 Wikipedia articles on medical topics. Stored on your phone or notebook, WikiMed provides all the medical knowledge you might need – and you don’t have to worry about having an Internet connection.
