Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Type with an extra row of customizable macros and shortcuts **in any app**.
It's possible with the one and only Markdown Keyboard.
Preset macros let you:
• Insert MD link syntax
• Insert MD pictures syntax
• Access common MD keys like * - #
• Datestamp in 1 tap
• Timestamp in 1 tap
• Move the cursor via keystroke
Plus, you can customize your own, unlimited number of macros. One keystroke can produce any combination of characters that you choose.
Even better, this keyboard works in landscape mode, and works great on iPad as well!
Please note, Markdown Keyboard only works in English at this time.
What's New in Version 1.0.1
Speed and performance improvements.
Would be great if it worked
As it is, it's unstable and unusable.
The settings 'cog' symbol key does nothing at all. And when I used the instructions page to reset the extra keyboard line it was fine on first use but when I went back to tweak it again I found it had reverted to the original version. When I tried a second time I found it had removed even its own original configuration and now offers only one extra line instead of its original three.
On top of all that the actual keyboard layout has been altered, with no shift key on the right which is irtitating got a right-handed writer needing access to the punctuation keys. Furthermore, the keys are larger leading to more typos from anyonr accustomed to the original layout. Worse, these typos aren't picked up because there is no spell checker. Worse still, it ignores any spelling macros you have set up on your device.
It would be a fantastic app if these basic and important problems were erradicated. It's been much harder work writing this using the new keyboard than it should have been with every third or fourth word a typo needing to be fixed. And for the basic premise of the app not yo work either is intoletable.
If these keyboard things were sorted and thr aoo actualky worked I'd give it 5 stars. At present it foesnt deserve any. (Sorry: I've huven up evrn tryjng yo correct any typos. )
Not updated, so given up
After pointing out easily fixed problems with this I was assured they would be dealt with, and the shortcomings of the app made clear in the App Store. Neither has happened, and I got fed up waiting.
