Stackwise: a new Stack Exchange browser for iOS devices.

  • (v1.2) Now you can scroll through images embedded in questions and answers with standard pan gestures. See all the details on image-heavy Stack Exchanges like Photo.SE!
  • (v1.1.1) Now with Instapaper support. You can tweet questions, email them or post them to Instapaper.


A few months ago, I caught the Stack Exchange bug. I loved the depth of the communities, the depth of the questions, and the depth of the answers.

Where else could you find out the pH feasible region for spherification, or indeed, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

But I wanted an iOS app which could give me a bird's eye view of my favourite Stack Exchange sites, and beautifully.

I wanted to see all my favourite sites, and scroll effortlessly through dozens of questions.

So when I couldn't find an SE app for iOS which met my needs, I decided to make one.


Stackwise is a free app for iPhone, and a paid Universal app (iPad and iPhone).


On the iTunes App Store in two delicious flavours:


Stackwise is made for iOS devices capable of running iOS 5.0 and greater.

We've also updated it for iOS 6 and the new iPhone 5's 4-inch Retina display.


Tweet me at @OverpunchApps, or drop me a comment right here: I'm active on Stack Exchange after all. Bug reports, feature requests, cat videos: these have my attention.


Stackwise is built from battle-tested iOS frameworks like Core Data, RestKit and DTCoreText.

    Could you please add the mathjax support on the Mathematics site? It is just a matter of adding a js file, but without this it is nearly impossible to read math. Thanks. Commented Aug 21, 2013 at 16:59
  • Also the displaying format is not fully correct. For example, codes are displayed in a weird font and not color. The app could get more polished to make people more willing to pay. Commented Aug 21, 2013 at 17:06

    @dentisDark: Thanks for your comments. I agree that the Mathematics SE in particular is pretty hard to use unless you can compile TeX in your head. I'll be looking into supporting MathJax on the Mathematics SE, although we're using native iOS text rendering, so it unfortunately isn't as straightforward as including a JS file.

    The Facebook login seems to not do anything. I can't login.

    It looks like your app is no longer available. If so, could you please mark your post as obsolete, by tagging and editing the title and body like this?
