Tabula is a distraction free writing app which automatically formats your text as you write. Tabula lets you focus on honing your words, instead of fiddling with formatting menus.

So once you're done writing, you're done.

Automatic Formatting

Tabula uses algorithms based on natural composition to detect how you've laid out the page, and style it accordingly as you type.

When it comes time to export, Tabula wraps your content into hand crafted themes which adapt to changes in paper and screen size. So they look great and read comfortably wherever you take them.

Whether it be shopping lists, blog posts, class notes, or financial reports, Tabula will make it look great, with no effort.

Notable Features
- Author your content distraction free, with live preview
- Automatic detection and formatting of headings, lists, tables, links, and more
- Export HTML or PDF files in a variety of themes
- iCloud Drive Sync
- Clean interface which fades away as you type

- Export Raw HTML representations of your formatted document. Perfect for inserting into existing websites or alongside custom stylesheets.

Tabula is designed with care in Minnesota and New Hampshire.

Exceeded Expectations with 3 features I didn’t anticipate

I tried three free markdown readers; this was BY FAR the best.

The last desktop productivity app I got that was this pleasant was ‘Greenshot’ screenshot editor.

Why I like Tabula:
The central awesomeness is that you type plaintext into it and in realtime it creates beautiful formatting.
I don’t expect much from a text editor so it almost felt like A.I. to me.
Files export to PDF or HTML (besides markdown format)!
Good intro-screen when you first open it: intuitive getting started with it.
Pretty colors appear.
When you export it, you can toggle themes — that is way better than choosing themes at the beginning.
When you begin a project and are trying to sketch out the skeleton of your talk you want something like this Tabula, frictionless rapid capture of your idea.

I like the name too — it’s a little more intelligent than its peers.

An even simpler version of Markdown

This is great — I love being able to write without thinking about formatting at all. And the pre-made export themes are really nice!

From my use

I do not find that this app does anything I couldn’t do faster by hand.

The syntax help shows an example graphic, but no indication of anything more.

If there is a needed syntax, there’s nothing automatic about this app. It promised to figure out formatting by context clues and tabs and the like.

Other than one title, I see no evidence this happens.
