Coming along nicely. One suggestion: use the de facto standard Markdown # for autoformatted headings rather than the (legitimate but not so widely-used) == underlining. Odd not to have text select-drag-drop here. It's slightly compensated for by the almost-an-outliner type "move paragraphs" function, but still I miss it. Perhaps it's coming. Overall, though: great. Elegant and fuss-free

Price down to $19. Still seems somewhat high, but for a quality WYSIWYG Markdown app, that could be worth it. I've been playing with the free prerelease of Typora and want to see what their 1.0 price is before I make a decision, but if they're the same price Texts could get my money.

Typora is much better, with far more robust preview and Markdown support especially for tables.

Texts has now reached v1. Markdown writing apps are ubiquitous. Most are the simple, two pane variety, one pane for composing and one for previewing. Mou is a well-known example. Some are sophisticated, like Byword and Ulysses. I’ve recently fallen for Texts. My Texts app review, begins with, "Do you write with a markdown application? If not, does your reticence have anything to do with learning markdown syntax? What if you could instantly enjoy all the benefits of markdown without having to learn anything new?” Here’s the link: http://liveyourbestdreams.com/texts-app-review/

I loved Texts until I opened a file created with it with a few other Markdown editors (incl. ByWord, iWriter, Write, and Letterspace). The formatting was all over the place in all four, and as mentioned by a previous reviewer, the headings all showing-up with the underline standard as opposed to the pound (hashtag) character. I need to experiment more with the compatibility issue, but spaces and returns were inserted where they should not have been. Otherwise, a great concept with a lot of potential.

Please note that formatting for headings can be switched ATX (hash characters) - http://www.texts.io/support/0015/ - and hard-wrapping of lines at 80 characters can be switched off - http://www.texts.io/support/0006/.

I tried a lot of different Markup editors but Texts is most pleasant to use. - You see what you get, no need for additional preview window. - Easy to use and remember shortcuts - It's only app that I know that allow to convert RTF text to markdown just by copy/paste what is huge time saver. - You can copy html output for just selected text or for all text, not much apps offer this feature I'm glad that I found this app out, RTF converting is what I did looking for a long time. If you working with markdown give it a try.

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.

Very simple and yet feature rich app. But as a long time Ulysses user, I would like more flexibility in managing output fonts and paragraphs. The dev is very responsive, so I hope we will see a lot of improvements in the future!
