Brilliant widget...a major problem is that widget text (after it's saved) doesn't seem to able to be selected or copied. I think this could make the widget much easier to use.

The idea of this is great, but I have to agree that $15 is just absurd for a widget and turns me away from this product. I mean, VoodooPad Lite had far more features and is a full-fledged program, and it's free.

$15?! crazy for a widget... i'll stick to whatever version I have now, which seemed to be free.

FOr a widget I think $15 is rather crazy.

Also i'd want a way to save/backup my wiki data if i was paying that much - dont want to somehow lose all my wiki!

Other than the price though, this is a ace widget!

Everything is automatically saved when you hit the save (checkmark) button.

If you want to backup your wiki, grab the file that lives here: ~/Library/Application Support/inkling/inkling.db or let your backup software do it.

It seems to still be "donationware" not shareware as MacUpdate says. Personally I still see this as a "beta" product since it has relatively few features. I don't pay for beta software - which means I am basically paying for development twice: as a beta tester and again with money. If this product develops into a full fledged wiki with proper wiki syntax and navigation links *then* I'll consider paying. Not before.

It's a tight little widget. I like it as a quick notepad - better than stickies - for writing down real thoughts as opposed to 'lists'.
And it's free and it works and it's not at all annoying and the $15 he asks for is to become a 'sponsor', so if don't send anything if you don't want to, but if you think a widget is worth a buck, then send the guy a buck.

... some people think it's only worth more if it weighs more.

musubana had trouble on 01 Dec 2007
I found a bug in WW 1.5 related to non-US keyboards.

However, I don't know how to contact the developer, as he leaves no contact info on his homepage.

Can anyone help me?
