View, edit, search and comment on MediaWiki with your iPad
Wiki Edit is an iPad application that makes editing any MediaWiki site a pleasure.
It features a fully functional web browser that automatically detects Wiki sites and enhances them with a special menu, and a beautiful full-screen wiki markup editor.
It works with hundreds of thousands of MediaWiki based sites, including those from the Wikimedia Foundation like Wikipedia®, Wikibooks™, and Wikiversity™. It also works with wiki's hosted on Wikia™, like WoWWiki, FFXIClopedia, and others
Praise for Wiki Edit:
Great Wikipedia browser/editor. This deceptively simple browser app is the best environment I've found for editing articles on Wikipedia and other MediaWiki sites. - Ralphoo
One of a kind. Wiki Edit is a useful app for anyone who provides content on a MediaWiki site. It offers a nice full screen editing window to make wiki pages easier to edit than in Safari. - ADobkin
As a daily MediaWiki user, this app is quite literally life-changing for me, and well worth the money. - Jesse
Justification for a company iPad if ever I saw one. - Richard
