> There’s no shortage of Markdown editors to choose from, and many of them are fantastic. We think [Byword](https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/byword/id420212497?mt=12&at=11l7ja&ct=tss) is the best of the bunch because it hits the sweet spot between simplicity and functionality. Byword offers a calm writing environment, yet has just enough features under the hood enough to make you a happy and more productive writer.
Byword really is a wonderful app. I do all my long-form writing in it, which includes all the articles I write here and for other sites as well as [the book](http://shawnblanc.net/2014/07/new-shawn-today-series/) I’m working on right now.
