Byword is a basic concept text editor for both Mac and now iOS that provides minimal text and Markdown editor.
The iOS and Mac OS X versions work together via iCloud document syncing, and the iOS iteration of Byword also supports Dropbox. So even if you don’t use Byword on your Mac, you can access documents with the iOS app on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
The app offers a number of ways to export text. You can export to HTML, converting Markdown formatting to the appropriate HTML. Byword for iOS offers some very useful features, notably the quick formatting options and arrow keys on its “swipeable row.”
