Writing Kit - Research & Write Markdown/Fountain Documents
By Quang Anh Do
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Writing Kit is for writers who want to do research and write documents/screenplays in Markdown or Fountain. You don't even need to know Markdown syntax to get started.
Writing Kit comes with Dropbox sync, TextExpander support, HTML export, researching tools among tons of well-thought out features.
"[Writing Kit] manages to combine a rather powerful set of features, and yet it remains very simple to use, with an uncluttered interface. If you write anything on that requires you to use source material, you should probably check out Writing Kit." — WIRED Gadget Lab
"It’s app as multitool, seeking to provide all the functions that a web-native author might want in their day-to-day work. What I find interesting about it is the way of thinking about how you carve the world up into tasks. From a user experience design standpoint, it’s a tuned set of tools for a particular kind of user working on a particular kind of job." — Fast Company's Co.Design
"I’m going to tell you about another one that makes those long writing sessions easier – Writing Kit. If you’re one to frequently use Markdown and do research while writing, then Writing Kit is definitely for you and worth the admission price." — AppAdvice
"This app has been this week’s revelation for me. I’ve been trying several note-taking apps in the past weeks, but as far as Markdown goes, Writing Kit is a winner." — MacStories
"Incredibly robust and full featured for what it is" — The Brooks Review

What's New in Version 3.9.3
HOT FIX: iOS 8 crashes when using the Return key
Writing Kit is just the app I've been looking for, and I've certainly tried them all (almost). I'm finally hooked on one app that allows me to use Markdown, export to all sorts of other apps and allows me easy research options. It is quick and responsive.
iOS 9+ Developer No longer Active?
The developer website, getwritingkit.com is no longer valid, nor are any of his other product websites. I changed the background theme and now Writing Kit crashes every time I try to open it, so the app is unusable. I would love to say good things about this product, and try other products by same developer, but the issues need to be addressed, and I need to know he's still in business.
