Customer Reviews

Favorite system

I use this app and Byword for the Mac, synchronizing with iCloud. They help me retain ideas for stories and poems, scraps of things I want to tinker at later at the computer, etc. This could not be a better setup for me. I was a longtime MS Word user, and I liked it well enough, but this is so much more efficient. I love having all my stuff at my fingertips wherever I am. I also love the simplicity of these apps. They really do get out the way and let you write.

I don't use Markdown much, but am getting more familiar with it. So I can't really speak to Byword's implementation of John Gruber's brilliant markup language. So far everything seems to work well in that category.

For me, this is it. I am deeply grateful for this family of apps and use them daily. Devs, if you read these reviews, thank you.

Great for notes

*Update: After communicating with the developer, my issue of blank exports has been explained. It's a symptom of Markdown vs programming issues/bugs. It's nice to have a developer that interacts with his customers.

The app overall is great, and I like how easy it is to create lists and add emphasis. Is use it for note taking that I can save as PDFs and go look at later. *However, this version seems to be exporting blank documents. I'm looking forward to a fix. Keep up the good work.

Hidden preview button and no shortcuts

App requires you to swipe up at a weird angel to reveal the 3 dots then you can click that to show where the markdown preview button is. This is very annoying

Also the app doesn't have any shortcuts to do the markdown preview which is very annoying since you already have a multi step process to render your HTML.

Lastly the app doesn't recognize the '###' header which to me felt like a trivial thing to support as it is a <h3> tag.
