Simple tool does its job

This application is for previewing markdown-formatted documents, not for creating them. It allows me to use my favorite text editor, instead of trying to also be a great text editor. This makes sense and it does its job just fine. If you are looking for an editor, well, this is not it. Don’t give low scores in a review to an app that doesn’t do what it never intended to do.

I think it could add a few features without straying from its simplicity:
- custom or at least a few built-in stylesheets to select from.
- export to HTML, PDF
- Print support

Exactly what I wanted

This does exactly what I want — I point Marko at a Markdown file that I’m editing in my preferred text editor, and when I save changes, I switch over to Marko to see an updated preview. And so far, it seems to work with all the Github-flavored Markdown I need it too. (I wouldn’t expect making links to issues or repos, of course.)

One thing is broken...

One thing is broken - on file update, application refreshes preview and… dosn't save position. If text I'm pre-viewing is somewhere deep down or in the middle, it will take time to locate it again. This can be annoying if modifiying alot and frequiently.
