Byword +1

Merlin talked about using Byword in the most recent Back to Work episode. I couldn’t agree more. The Byword developer was active as Apple finished up Lion and had a Lion compatible version out even before Lion released.

The app works with Markdown flawlessly and does no more. I’ve been playing with BBEdit and TextMate but can’t seem to find a reason to use them when I am just writing Markdown text and Byword does it so well. I’m planning a future MPU episode on power text editing and looking forward to talking to some friends about why I should be using big boy tools for text editing. For the meantime though, I’m really satisfied with Byword. is sponsored by Bee Docs Timeline 3D. Make a timeline presentation with your Mac.
