Markdown und Dropbox

1Writer ist mit Abstand der beste Markdown-Editor im App-Store – und ich habe viele getestet. Gerade in Verbindung mit Dropbox kann er seine Stärken ausspielen. Fonts und Zeilenabstände lassen sich für Vorschau und Editor ändern, relativ verknüpfte Bilder werden angezeigt und die intelligente Zusatztastatur erspart eine Menge Tipparbeit.

Mit Tags lassen sich schöne, intelligente Strukturen erzeugen, die zum Beispiel auch mit der 1Writer eigenen Todo-Implementierung ganz neue Möglichkeiten eröffnen.

Bin begeistert 😄

Habe eine Alternative zu Trunk Notes gesucht (Wird leider nicht mehr weiter entwickelt ) und bin hier fündig geworden.

1Writer scheint alles zu haben, was ich brauche. Leider sind die vielen Möglichkeiten nicht gut beschrieben. Da muss man ein wenig Zeit investieren um all Feature nutzen zu können.

Die Übernahme meiner TrunkNotes Daten funktioniert gut.

Funktioniert tadelos und ist einfach zu bedienen. Er erkennt Tags, dick/kursiv/usw. lässt sich sehr schnell einstellen, auch die Zusatzleiste nimmt viel Arbeit. Auch Nebensächliche Sachen wie Pin und etc. lassen sich einstellen.
