Background: I'm a huge fan of John Gruber's Markdown and Fletcher Penney's MultiMarkdown. I'm also a big fan of Ulysses III. TypeMetal is another very impressive content creation app. What sets it appart is how it enables EASY creation of "concise, professional-grade" HTML. The HTML editing engine is brilliant. Although it's a v1 application, the level of OS X polish is simply splendid. I enjoyed the DEMO so much, I quickly parted with $30. This app is immediately useful, but also has an amazing future.

Clarifying, TypeMetal is not a Markdown/MultiMarkdown tool; rather you simply write styled content and TypeMetal creates the HTML for you.

Ulysses III is NOT the natural evolution of Ulysses v1 and v2, it's a new plain text paradigm. If you're a devotee of the original Ulysses workflow, expect a bumpy transition. I preferred Scrivener to the original Ulysses, but Ulysses III has very quickly become my primary writing environment. Ulysses III v1 is a meticulously crafted gem with huge potential. If you appreciate the value of a plain text workflow and the markdown syntax, dive in, you're going to have fun. There's a 50% discount this week.

There are a significant number of plain text/markdown apps currently vying for your attention (Byword, Folding Text, Multimarkdown Composer, Ulysses 3 and…). Format longevity and collaboration are key strengths of plain text. The Texts app adds cross-platform, rich editing convenience while magically producing plain text documents, formatted with markdown syntax. I'm impressed right now and going forward Texts has tremendous potential. Check it out. Very likely a 5-star app in the not too distant future.

Are you old enough to remember the outliners ThinkTank and More? In the 80s they were a reason to own a Mac. This modern, thought organizer is a pleasant flashback to those days, but it's shiny, new and comes with enormous potential. Are you a plain text and markdown aficionado? If so, get ready to grin until your face hurts. Watch the FoldingText movie, then invest a little cash, you really need to try this thing.

I've looked at Sketch and the now discontinued DrawIt previously, but Sketch 2 is such a significant improvement that I purchased it after using Bohemian Coding's free trial for less than an hour.

It looks like Ross Carter of has sold Pagehand to Andy Finnell of who has renamed the program Pagesmith. Unfortunately, my Pagehand registration information is NOT accepted by Pagesmith. This strikes me as a cheesy business practice, I certainly won't be spending $40 for a renamed program.

I apologize for the 'cheesy' business practice statement. I received an updated registration code from Andy Finnell at fortunate shortly after submitting my comment.

A versatile, modern, 64-bit, Mac OS backup app. I use it to create boot-able clones of my startup disk; SmartBackup does its thing every night without any problems.

I like Mou, a lot. It's a modern 64 bit Markdown app with a single window design, featuring very impressive syntax highlighting and live preview. Keyboard actions make easy Markdown writing even easier. Responsive author.

Unattractive website with Windows screen shots, crappy icon and editable preference files rather than the usual Mac GUI, BUT it's FAST and very impressive. I've deleted BBEdit and TextMate. First, I added my favourite TextMate theme and then I started playing with Sublime Text in conjunction with both TextSoap and the Marked app. Huge potential, if Mac developers get behind it. Developer is very responsive. Unlimited demo. Don't be dissuaded by initial appearances.

A new 64 bit text editor already featuring Lion's Resume, Auto Save and Versions. That plus line numbering, syntax colouring, snippets, regular expressions and commands for $5. Bluntly, I'm dismayed that anyone would have the nerve to complain about such a bargain. I'm delighted to see that Peter Borg has finally decided to charge something for his hard work and I'm very grateful that he has been so generous.

Be forewarned: After installing Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac Home Edition v8.0.1 I experienced a kernel panic when I restarted my mid-2010 iMac (10.7.3). I then used the Sophos Removal/Uninstall program and restarted without incident.
