Customer Reviews

Simple and Straightforward

I bought this app because I was looking for an entry level MarkDown app. I wanted to write for my blog in this format but didn’t want to spend a ton of money to commit to an app that I wasn’t sure I was going to use in the long-run. I like the app so far… simple, clean, straightforward. There are not a ton of whistles and bells… but that is not what I need right now. One small flaw… every time i start typing an apostrophe appears to the right of my cursor. I delete it and it re-appears after I start typing again. A minor but annoying flaw… an update to fix this would be great! Thanks for a great app.
