Does what it does perfectly

I’ve been using Byword for years now, and it’s still pretty much perfect at what it does: not managing large writing projects, just being a pure writing app. When I just want to bang out a blog post, Byword remains one of my go-to choices. It’s beautiful, *just* customizable enough to be able to tweak it to my liking, and always fast and performant. Perfect when you want to *just write*.

Great, lightweight, flexible text editing app!

Byword is a great app for text editing. Useful, functional, lightweight and flexible. What more can you ask for?

This app allows you to get everything else out of your way, and just write without distraction. Great for everything from notetaking to long-form material.

Write first, format later by importing the text file into your favorite word processor, blog, or whatever. But if you must format in real-time, byword will allow you to use markdown syntax.

And… it’s cross platform, so you can work on your documents from your phone, ipad, or mac, and easily switch between them.
I use this app every day.

One of the best Markdown editors for the Mac.

Support for WordPress is just icing on the cake!
