Byword for iOS iconMarkdown lovers rejoice, Byword for iOS is here! I’ve been beta testing it for a while now and it’s my new favorite way to write Markdown on my iPad. There’s also full iCloud (and Dropbox) sync with the desktop version, so the writing circle is complete (at least for me). For background, see some of my previous thoughts on Byword.

The Markdown features I love in the desktop version all translated wonderfully, and with MetaClassy’s usual attention to subtlety and elegance. Go check it out. At the starting price of $2.99, it’s a steal. It will make it up to $4.99 eventually, so grab it while it’s hot! The desktop version is still $9.99, and that’s a bargain for the best writing app out there (at least for pieces that aren’t Scrivener-sized).

By the way, Byword works really well with Marked for previewing and export, and there’s a Byword theme available on the “Extras” page!
