How to Put a Wiki On Your iPad
Wikis just aren’t for Wikipedia anymore. In fact, you can now bring a fully functional wiki with you on your iPad. While note-taking apps like Evernote and SimpleNoteApp have their charm (especially on the iPad) but a wiki has some power and flexibility those apps just can’t muster at this time.
Wiki apps like what I profile in this post are great for technical documentation, glossaries, and other online documents that need a lot of links and media.
If you are looking for a bit more power under the hood in your note-taking application, here are some wiki apps for the iPad to check out:
If you supplement your note taking with other media like photos, documents, video, and audio clips, WikiTouch has got you covered. You can attach media to your notes and link between notes residing in your Wiki. All of your notes and media are available to you offline or online.
WikiTouch has its own Internet server (in the cloud, not on the iPad like WikiServerPro) where the files and media you upload reside for storage and sharing.
Lastly, Wikitouch lets you password protect your important notes.
All of these features together enable you to host content on your iPad for sharing across WiFi networks with the people around you for business or personal uses.
It has full DropBox support for syncing Trunk Notes between iOS devices. This is a break from the other wiki apps for that use a web server for synchronizing data between devices and PCs.
When a Wiki meets IPad
While I am a diehard Evernote guy, it is hard for me even to deny that the wiki apps in this post have some power and options that set then apart from many of the other iPad note taking apps available out there right now.
