Ever thought you needed your own personal wiki? Flying Meat’s VoodooPad may be just what you’re looking for. A recent 4.3 update adds the ability to make your documents conveniently accessible as iPhone-compatible Web apps.

VoodooPad 4.3 brings a number of enhancements to the application. For example, you can now create page anchor links, which, when clicked, jump to a particular part of a page. WebDAV syncing is also faster, and VoodooPad can now take advantage of Snow Leopard features like data detectors, automatic text replacement, and spelling correction.

The mobile Web app may be one of the most interesting additions, however. Previously, VoodooPad let you export files to its free VP Reader iPhone app. But if you’ve got some space on a Web server, you can now export to an HTML5 mobile Web app that mimics an iPhone app, making your documents accessible on more mobile devices.

Flying Meat developer Gus Mueller also fixed a number of bugs and tweaked plenty of other features in this latest update. VoodooPad 4.3 requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later and costs $40; upgrades from previous versions are just $20.
