Ratings and Reviews


Things to Praise & Things to request

After an earlier post of mine that noted the app crashes frequently, the developers have fixed it. Thanks to them.

There are a lot of things to like in Kardnote
* Foremost for me is the ability to customize themes for both the editor and the preview/export to pdf and html.
* The editor font size is customizable as well as the line spacing in the editor (not all markdown apps have this)
* The card interface is innovative in that it gives you an overview of your files in the the notebook at a glance
* Browse all versions of a file is very helpful
* Task lists as well are useful
* Notebooks allows for grouping of files as you might wish
* Attractive interface

Things to request
* highlight syntax
* comment (hidden) syntax
* TOC function
* shortcut assignment via Apple keyboard prefs: PDF is same for Save As and Preview. Change in order to customize

This app will likely become my go to markdown editor.


Really intriguing, capable visual notes app

Interesting and powerful notes app that encapsulates images, and outputs to Markdown, PDF, HTML or RTF. When writing it offers options like typewriter scrolling (which can also keep your typing centerd if you like) and a focus mode where the app will offer a slight highlight to the what you’re writing and the lines above and below it.

I did encounter a freeze while playing around with making custom themes and had to force-quit. Otherwise no problems.


Was broken → Now seems fixed

Version 1.0.5 seems to have fixed the card opening issue which made the app unusable.

I like the concept implied by the screenshots.

Will have to test stability before giving it a higher star rating
