A very useful app

Sundraw

I use Byword all the time for any Markdown content. Granted, there are many apps that can be used for writing Markdown but I find Byword the most convenient as it allows me to quickly export my text as HTML and paste it into a web page. Also, I like the fact that I can work on the same text from different computers and tablets — I have a few of those.

One thing that could be improved is the speed of synchronisation between different devices. Sometimes, after working on a text from one computer, I switch to a different computer but the latest paragraph or two might still not be available there. This might have been already fixed though, as I haven’t noticed this problem recently, I only had it in the past.

Excellent Support for Markdown

Cheesy part: Im a longtime Byword user and love the cleanliness of this app, and the way it has evolved over time blah blah blah…

Useful part: It has excellent Markdown (including tables!) and HTML support. Only one slight issue that I have noticed thus far: when you link a photo from and iOS device’s photo app, then come to open the same doc on the Mac, I often encounter fidelity issues, mostly to do with orientation. Small bug.

AOB: This app has been in existence for a few years (5?), with regular updates.

A lovely text editor

I use a text editor to do almost all my typing in. It produces small files and there are versions for iOS too so I can work whereever I am.
