KyWiki is YOUR personal wiki. It allows you to organize information on your iPhone in a manner similar to community wikis, but without the need for collaboration by multiple users.
As a wiki, every note can be easily enriched with image and style in a syntax very easy to remember (the same syntax as used with Wikipedia).
As a wiki, every note can be linked to another. This makes it easy to make tables of contents, definitions and all the links that make your posts more vibrant.
All your notes are local and do not require internet connection. But you can also sync all your notes via Dropbox if you wish. Once initialized, this synchronization is done in the background so you do not have to worry about it.
Future additions will include:
* Sync with any MediaWiki server.
* Do your modification directly in the online web server.
* Add other synchronization methods (Spideroak, SugarSync, box.net, ...)
* Added functions and special pages.
* ... (Fill your choice here & ask for it on twitter @kyuran)

Works very well
After figuring out how to create a page the app works great. In addition to creating pages in the index, you can also create a link to a page (switch to edit mode and put the name in double square brackets) and then click on it. I've updated my rating and the original review below no longer applies.
This looks like it might be useable, but because of inadequate instructions it isn't. While the authors describe how to format all the elements on a page - headings, numbered and unnumbered lists, font formatting - they don't tell how to create a page, put a link on it that goes to another page, or even how to make something into a link. Without links, wiki words, and pages, it's not really a wiki. Those things may be possible, but I couldn't figure out how. If they change the documentation - even just adding it to the website - so I can use it, I'll be able to rate it.
Here are some of the missing directions
Played with this program a bit.
To add a new page, go to the index, type in the name of the page as you want it to appear, and a new page of that name is created. You can then edit it.
For any page you create, you will see that you can erase it in the index as well. You will see a "x" by it's name on the left of the index.
Even with the helpful comments from other reviewers, more trouble than it is worth. Developer was too lazy to document the app on his own web site.
