Editors' Review

Byword for Mac is a markdown editor designed to help you focus on your writing, while still providing quick and easy access to all the tools you need. And with plenty of export and sharing options built in, this app won't get in the way of your getting work done.

Pros

Minimalist interface: Byword for Mac's interface helps you keep your focus on your work, and that means just a blank page. There are no toolbars or other extras cluttering up the interface, but all of the items you'll need as you work are conveniently available either from drop-down menus or through built-in keyboard shortcuts.

Direct publishing: With the purchase of a Pro upgrade, you can publish your work straight from the app to your blog or other webpage. Supported platforms and programs include Wordpress, Tumblr, Scriptogram, Evernote, and Blogger.

Cons

Document navigation: For shorter works, the lack of page breaks or other navigation features is not an issue. But longer documents can become unwieldy at times. An option to navigate by headings or other identifying characteristics would be helpful in those cases.

Bottom Line

Byword for Mac is a great option when you're writing for the Web, whether for work or pleasure. It gives you quick access to all of the tools you need to work efficiently while also keeping the interface clean and free of distractions.
