Descent app so far from the start

No need to access the web, no need to make an account, It’s free, Can be opened by many other documents for transferability and provides an indefinite “as you type” spelling error. Even though I don’t need them and likely won’t use these features, but this app offers the option to momentarily command document spellcheck and spell error instead and to activate auto correct. A number of other key features and customizable details available as well, but basically above was the main concept I was looking for. Nice writing app definitely a huge step up and replacement for the notepad for some more advanced writing.

Type "writing free" in search bar instead of document or word document, etc. to get a better search of what the app store offers in this category.

Nice, pretty little markdown editor. Would love clean copy-and-paste

It really is nice looking. And it does exactly what you want it to do, with no clutter.

My only problem with it is that I’d like an easier way to cut and paste styled text out of writed. I can copy and paste the markdown source out of the editor. Alternatively, I can click on the preview in the lower right corner, which renders the text (with bulleted list, emphases, font sizes for headers, etc.) but if I copy and paste out of the print preview, the arbitrary line breaks come with it. The only way I’ve found to copy and paste styled text out of writed is to export to HTML, open the HTML in a browser, and copy it from there. This leaves me with an HTML file to clean up. Too many steps.

I’d love a simple way to copy and paste.

Language Recognition!!

It recognizes immediately what language I’m typing in which makes it SUPER user friendly and very low maintenance.
On microsoft word you have to manually change the language which is a small inconvenience but this takes care of that for you.

What I honestly downloaded it for was something that wasn’t TextEdit that could actually be used with the screen sharing Mac update (as for some reason Microsoft products don’t function)

and Thus far- extremely pleased with the download!
