Ratings and Reviews

Okay - needs some work.


I’m always a sucker for a simple and easy-on-the-eyes text editor, especially for Markdown. MagicDown is nice but the syntax highlighting leaves something to be desired. In semi-complex documents, some or all syntax highlighting fails to highlight consistently.

I suspect this will get better over time and I’m not sad for having bought it.

Pretty meh app in an oversaturated market


It’s an okay editor. If this was 3 or 4 years ago, it’d be a great markdown editor.

This editor does have an option for transparent background, which I haven’t seen in other editors.

My big gripe is for some reason, a document will start side scrolling, and I can’t get it to stop unless I exit the app. The themes are okay. The dark themes are a lot nicer than the light themes. The light themes are lacking contrast/umph. The text doesn’t pop off the screen and blends into the background.

Big things I’d like in future releases:
- Fix the side scrolling issue
- Margins. In full screen mode, the text goes all across the screen. If preview mode is on, there’s no issue, but with preview hidden, it’s hard to revise what I’m working on.

Great 1.0 release, but a lot to catch up on to compete in the market.
