Type with an extra row of customizable macros and shortcuts **in any app**.
It's possible with the one and only Markdown Keyboard.


Preset macros let you:
• Insert MD link syntax
• Insert MD pictures syntax
• Access common MD keys like * - #
• Datestamp in 1 tap
• Timestamp in 1 tap
• Move the cursor via keystroke

Plus, you can customize your own, unlimited number of macros. One keystroke can produce any combination of characters that you choose.

Even better, this keyboard works in landscape mode, and works great on iPad as well!


Please note, Markdown Keyboard only works in English at this time.

Overall I love this app!

Useful and nifty app that I've been using for a few weeks. I use a lot of special symbols in my iPhone note-taking, and the customizable extra keyboard row is a godsend. Thanks for making the keyboard load faster in the latest update. I'd like to see an option to hide the extra row when I don't need to use it, but overall I love this app!

Incredibly helpful for markdown typing

I use this all the time when drafting markdown journal entries and blog drafts. I often work in apps that don't have their own markdown keyboard, and this makes it so much easier to add *emphasis*, links, etc. I even created several custom macros that let me type things like "be there soon" or my professional email signature (which I occasionally want in my emails) - all with one button press. I don't have to deal with finicky "snippets" anymore. Would love to see even more suggested macros in future updates.

Great Keyboard that works everywhere

Update: This new version is much, much faster to load! Thanks!

Awesome for adding markdown syntax to my github comments on the fly. I was so tired of clicking around so many keyboard menus, and now this speeds up my entire workflow. I also love the custom macros you can add. This is very useful for other situations like email signatures, addresses, etc.

Overall, a great purchase!
