My Default Text Editor

This App has become my default text and markdown editor. I love the way you can publsh to Evernote. That was really what sealed the deal for me. It scrolls just fine for me. My only complaint is that I wish we had some options for the font of the editor window. I prefer to use a fixed-length font for the editor and then see how it translates in the preview window. BTW, I have looked at a lot of possible options for writing multimarkdown text directly to Evernote and this is the only satisfactory solution (There is one called Marxico, but once you send a not to Evernote you can’t edit it).

My Go To Writting App

I’ve tried a bunch of different writing applications but the one I keep coming back to is Byword. It’s elegant, efficient and actually makes it a joy to write. Any time I need to take a minute and write something out — such as an email, blog post, this review — Byword is where I go. The ability to push aside other apps and interfaces and simply *write* is invaluable to me and makes this tool indispensible on macOS and iOS.

LOVE Byword

Love this app. Makes it so easy to write on the fly! Don’t have to remember to save and seamlessly transitions from device to device. Then when I’m ready to post on my blog to covert to Word, bada boom, bada bang. It also makes citing references very easy. If you write a lot, you gotta have ByWord!
