    Is mediawiki or another kind of wiki software available for the ipod touch?

    By this I do not mean is there an app that can access wikipedia, I want an app that runs the wikipedia software, or similar.

    I keep a private wiki as a way of storing info/projects/etc. It would be great if I had a mobile version, any ideas?

    There is an app called 'Trunk' which is a personal Wiki for the iPhone or iPod Touch. I have it but haven't had a chance to play with it much so far. You can connect from any web browser over WiFi to your device while it runs the app, and add/edit your notes from the browser.

    More info:

    There is a video demo there. Looks pretty good. I must find time to have a play with it myself!

    $2.99 from the app store (or £1.79 sterling). Only two reviews in the UK store, both rating it 5. One review comments that judging from the developer's forum, there looks to be a good development roadmap.

    Just discovered one other useful app for those who'd like Wiki style notes on their iPhone/iPod Touch.

    If you have a Mac you may have heard of an app called VoodooPad. It's a very nice Wiki based notes app, well worth it's $29.95 asking price.

    In the App Store is a free app called VP Reader. Using this you can sync VoodooPad documents with your iPhone and read them on the device. As I have only just discovered this and my VoodooPad docs are all at home I haven't yet tested it. I think it is just a viewer, and has no editing functions. Hopefully some could get added in future, but I don't know if that is the plan or not.

    There is a free 'lite' version of VoodooPad but I suspect it won't have the sync feature. There is no Windows version of VoodooPad.
