Hi, I’m Don Kosak, the developer of Wiki Edit. I started my own consulting business in 2009 helping folks build scalable web services. In-between gigs, I like to learn new technologies and build things myself. Wiki Edit is one of those projects.
I use wikis a lot, personally, and for business. I use a personal wiki to organize my days and projects. For me, a wiki makes the ultimate “GTD” planning tool.
Of course I use wiki’s for my consulting work. When I’m out at a client, I’ll have all of the client data at my fingertips on my iPad.
While it’s a joy to browse a wiki on the iPad — it’s unfortunately a pain to edit them. Like most web based content tools, Mediawiki uses a browser text area to let you edit content. On a desktop, this is no big deal, but on the iPad, the text box is small, partly obscured by the onscreen keyboard, and requires a tricky two finger gesture to scroll through. Not fun at all.
That was the problem I wanted to solve with Wiki Edit.
I hope Wiki Edit will be as useful to you, as it has been to me.
