wikidPad is a great option for anyone who has ever been searching for a means to store information which can be cross referenced when required. It is therefore a viable alternative to more generic options such as a standard text editor or Microsoft WordPad. As is an open-source package, there is no charge to download and install its contents.
Main Functions and Applications
It should be noted that wikidPad is not a real-time web server. Instead, it is a standalone offline notepad which functions similar to a standard Wikipedia portal. The use of 'WikiWords' enables the users to navigate to different pages with the click of a button, very similar to its Internet counterpart. Thus, it is no longer necessary to open different files when information needs to be accessed. Word documents, text files, image links and audio clips are some examples of how these offline hyperlinks can be implemented.
There is an online help portal which can be accessed by those who require technical assistance. Automatic text completion, in-depth outline views and easy source code navigation are some other benefits offered by wikidPad. Several past updates have addressed some minor bugs. Over 100 different icons can be embedded within a page to further streamline the navigation process.
