Really needs CSS support, export for Markdown
I see posts on the Internet going back 7 years ago with folks asking for the ability to link a Markdown file to either an internal or external CSS file for preview purposes, and 7 years later this still isn't implemented. The ability to export to PDF, with that CSS attached, would be an even bigger bonus. I'm kind of disappointed I paid $10 for this upgrade and I don't see any new features.
Really makes things easier
If you get an idea and want to implement it on your website, this is a tool you definitely need. I'm really excited to see what can be done with some of the capabilities and features of iOS 11 once it ships. Ten bucks. Get it.
Solve my orgmode problem
Finally found an application that work with Google Drive and can view/edit orgmode files.
Alexander is very responsive and solved my questions within 24 hours and followed up with more useful information.
