It's very good, but problem in Chinese, Japanese, and...

I have used various Markdown editors for iPhone (Ulysses, iA Writer, Editorial, 1Writer, iWriter Pro, Inkdrop etc.), so Byword's feeling is the best for me!

But, it has a fatal problem...
Byword works well in most languages. conversely, Markdown breaks in Japanese, Chinese, Thai, etc.
Those languages ​​do not have a space between words (no “word divider” languages).


I have a **big** apple.
-> I have a big apple.

-> 私は*大きな*リンゴを持っています。

It's wrong.
I hope fix it... thanks for very apps!

export などのメニューにアクセスしづらい

iPad で使う時だけかもしれないですけど、export…HTML出力やコピーするためにメニューにアクセスしたいと思ったら、キーボードを消したり、画面の1番上までスクロールしたりしないといけない。
Gboard などのサードパーティー製のソフトキーボードだとキーボードだけを消すのがすぐにできないことがあるので不便です。

あと、bold(太字) などに半角スペースが必須な所も、デメリットです。
