While you can use JotSpot for individual or small projects, it really is very well suited to team projects. It has the widest number of collaborative features, yet it also retains an ease of use rivaling that of LittleWiki.
Along with such usual wiki features as collaboration, commenting, and sharing, JotSpot offers several unique features, the most prominent of which is its applications. The applications are little extensions to JotSpot that enable you to add functions to your wiki, making it more useful and flexible. Many of the applications—such as the project manager, the knowledge base, the community forum, and the group calendar—are definitely intended for use within a company or a project team. But there are a few that individuals can use, such as the to-do list and the photo gallery.
As with LittleWiki, you don’t have to use wiki markup when editing a JotSpot page. You get a word processor–like interface that enables you to format your pages with a mouse click (see Figure 4).

Like PBwiki, a JotSpot wiki can scale to meet your needs. The free account gives you a good taste of what JotSpot can do. The pay accounts, costing between $9.95 and $199.95 a month, enable you to add more users, upload larger files, and map your JotSpot wiki to your web site.
