Not listed on MU is a compelling new competitor called Desk.PM, which can be seen at www.desk.pm. Written for writers and comes with a load of options and features to numerous to mention here. Email support is quick and helpful. It's available in the MAS for $30. Downer: No demo. Disclaimer: I'm not associated with Desk; just a happy user proud to spread the word.

This is a great, minimalist text editor supporting markdown. The Zen themes are really cool; subtle music/noises playing away in the background as you type. The new version works perfectly well on macOS High Sierra. The only reason I’m docking it a star is because in the latest version it always starts with “Check spelling while typing” turned off and you have to manually enable it every time at startup. Apart from this it’s a five star app as it does what it’s designed to do - get out of the way and let you write - extremely well.

Free? There is a "Buy Now" button that says 20$. And I can't find anything about upgrades.

Edit: I just installed v3 over my old version. It accepts my old key.

This is actually an awesome app - except that it doesn't work with the Public Beta of macOS Sierra. I know it's unfair to give the developer of this app a one star rating when it doesn't work with the beta OS, but the reason I'm giving it the one star is because the only way to get in contact with the developer is through signing up to his forums (which I'm not going to do). When this problem has been rectified I'll be happy to give it the five star rating it deserves.

Same here. Editor displays a blank page under Sierra. No way to contact the developer apart from signing up for the forum.

Signing up to forums to communicate with developer sounds reasonable to me. At least he has forums where he communicates openly with people rather than hiding everything behind private emails (latest trick of developers in WordPress world).

This app shows promise, but has a long way to go in order to catch apps like ByWord which have been around for years. Typed has one feature, sounds as you type, that ByWord doesn't, but ByWord has lots of features that Typed doesn't. Although I bought Typed as part of a bundle, I'll continue to use ByWord at least until Typed has typewriter scrolling.

Desk is pretty good and I agree that support is snappy. Developed by a writer for writers. One to watch.
