Ratings and Reviews
This minimalist writer’s app is incredibly beautiful, simple and no-fuss. I’ve written millions of words in the app now (not an exaggeration) and it is incredibly reliable. Thank you so much for your attention to quality and keeping things simple.
J’adore ce logiciel. La possibilité d’y écrire en blanc sur noir m’est très utile, tout comme la possibilité d’y écrire en mode plein écran. Il joue le même rôle sur mon Mac que Drafts joue sur mon iPhone.
My Standard Writing App
As someone who does the majority of his writing in Markdown, Byword is a fantastic app that has pushed out multiple other writing apps. It's implementation of Markdown is spot on, I love writing with the black background in fullscreen mode, and unlike some of my other markdown apps, it has text zoom, which is great for for the new 4K display.
Pair it with Byword for iOS and you'll be a very happy writer.
