Excellent app

This unassuming app does what it does beautifully and reliably. It’s arguably one of my best investments on the App Store. It’s a good iOS citizen, playing well with the native Files app, which makes using it with other apps a breeze e.g. managing a github repo with Byword and Working Copy is a beautiful experience. As a pure typing experience too Byword offers enough options not to be overbearing while allowing you to craft your own writing experience, and writing in Markdown then publishing is, overall, seamless. Byword is a great app when compared to the more pompous iA Writer and the costlier Ulysses—especially when a subscription does not hold great value for infrequent writers.

Highly recommended

I was using iA writer before but switched to byword now. The folder management is better in this app. I can change the font to what I like is the best thing about it. This one strikes the perfect balance among all markdown apps
