toketaWare is a small software development business based in the UK (just outside York.) When I say small, I mean really small. Currently it's just me Craig Scott.
Toketa is a term used in Judo to describe when a person has escaped from being pinned down i.e. they've broken free. Seemed apt somehow - software that sets you free. That's the goal anyhow!
iThoughts mindmapping has been around over 8 years and toketaWare ltd has existed for over 4 years.
