Lately I’ve been writing the initial drafts of my longer-form articles using Byword and I really like it. Its glory is that it’s a very simple application.

When you work on a 23-inch monitor a good full-screen writing app can be hard to find. Apps that look good in full-screen mode on a 13- or 15-inch screen don’t necessarily scale well to 23 inches. Byword, however, scales quite well. It looks great regardless of if I’m writing on my laptop display or my cinema displays. And the dark color scheme is just splendid.

And the latest version (1.1.1) which shipped just about a week ago now includes autosaving and QuickCursor support among other improvements.
