Finally, we are here, for the iPhone and iPad platforms.
Metion is a notebook tool that focuses on the writing experience, uses Markdown as basic text syntax.
Metion CARES about the freedom of data and based on the open filesystem, and how the text is presented to your readers are very important too.

Note: This Metion is converted from the iPad edition which is using Apple Catalyst solution. It is still essentially an iPad App, not a fully native Mac App, as explained when Metion first time launched.

## Pretty and Useful Widgets
On iOS 14 & iPadOS 14 & macOS Big Sur, you can add a "writing statistics" widget to see the status of what you have written in the last 7 days or one year. Especially the whole year's writing statistics, for those who persist in writing, is not only a microcosm of their efforts, but also a kind of daily motivation to keep writing.

## Data Freedom, Open Filesystem
Metion based on the open filesystem of iCloud, no need to create new format for storing data. An article is a plain text file, and the images in the article are also under a certain folder.
Data freedom and open filesystems allow us to synchronize data across devices using iCloud. If you have a higher requirement for data security, you can also make a backup very quickly by copying the entire folder (work folder).

One thing more, Metion has a built-in support named "history version" that provides a little more reliability for your documents.

## The Exporting of Metion
If using Metion to export as PDF, we suggest the theme of PDF can be set as "Printer" in Settings Panel. If there is a real printer connected in current local network, just directly print it, it will be pretty when words on the real paper.

Document in Metion can be exported as image, which is optimized for mobile device (iPhone). We can set text and QR-Code signature at the end of exported image. Send it to friends though some social apps. The beautiful layout of text can highlight the value of your words.

Metion can automatically analyze the current articles, especially those with strong structure. It can be exported as "Mindmap" with one tap only.

今天收到了apple store的退款。
其实一开始是想支持一波“为中文写作者设计的”Markdown写作软件,不过后来还是发现我已经习惯了IA Writer的舒适界面,换到metion的时候发现菜单栏字体和图标太小,背景颜色偏黄,文字颜色也不是纯正的“黑”……

1. 可以调整文字大小这一点真是好评,眼睛舒服了
2. 打开时默认的淡黄色背景挺好看的,介绍文档中重点文字的配色也挺好看的
3. 第一次打开app时出来的漂亮的功能介绍滑动画给我的感觉像是一款手机潮款应用,而不是ipad专业级应用(本人使用ipad)
4. 中文文字输入不抖动非常舒服
5. 中英文文字之间的自动空格好评,这个功能也可以选择关闭
