is a free and simple Wiki with more than a few handy features that’s designed to look good and cover the basics.

The wiki app is now called Doc5 and is available at

What’s a wiki?

Pages of content have the ability to be edited by anyone using pretty much plain text just like a document editor app. This allows content to be easily added by people around the world, providing a collaborative space for your ideas and documentation. Each  change is tracked and credited to the different authors which allows for easy editing and infinite versions of each page.

A site running Doc5 can be used for things like simple note taking or a place to store ideas or technical documentation. Pages can be opened up to the world or restricted to you and your friends or colleagues. You can also upload your documents and images or other files for use in your pages. You don’t have to know anything about HTML or programming, just jump in and start writing.

Features of Doc5 include privacy and protection of pages and files and the concept of ownership of categories (collections of pages). Changes to each page are saved with differences immediately available via history. To learn about other features, have a read through the Manual or suggest a feature on the Feedback page.

To see what Doc5 can do, try the SandPit. Anyone can make and save changes to these pages, although until you sign in you won’t be able to protect pages, mark your own as private or claim categories.
