  • Bad Dropbox support

    By ChuckSpark
    - In the latest versions they make it very hard to work with Dropbox folders. The new modal is not intuitive at all - Today I was writing a document on dropbox and the App crashed. I lost everything. The app is supposed to constantly save your work but it doesn't

  • True black?

    By Roman Menyhart
    Can we please have a true black for dark mode? Thanks!
  • Almost perfect

    By caelanbaggins
    I’ve tried a lot of different writing apps, but I keep coming back to this one. It really is just the best markdown editor in the app store. My only complaint is that it won’t let me have two documents open at the same time. I’d love to have a tabbed interface so I could easily switch between documents.

  • The best way to write on the iPad

    By Redlightbulb
    I have tried a lot of notes apps. I take them very seriously. Other apps may have fancier graphics or nifty organization systems, but nothing is as nice for writing markdown on the iPad.
  • I’m not much of a writer, but I know what I like

    By Cyberpunk Librarian
    I’ve tried various different apps, but this is the one that fits me the best. I love the typewriter mode so everything I’m writing and working on *right now* is in the middle of the screen. No futzing around looking for my cursor or pushing words up from the bottom of the screen. When I want to write, I just need to keep moving a cursor to the right and keep things flowing without thinking about the app, the environment, how many things it supports, and all that. If you’re looking to put text on a screen using an iPad, this is your app.
  • This time, I really started writing
