Minimalism that draws the eye
1Writer stands out among the distraction-free Markdown/text editors on the App Store. The basics are all here, but 1Writer goes further than most. It is visually stripped back, but it has theme options, a dark mode and enables line height and font size changes.
You can link documents in local searches using hashtags. There’s also a Today view widget to get at recent edits.
The app rarely stumbles, but there are two doozies. Misspellings are flagged with a strikethrough but ignored if you continue typing. The extra keyboard items feel arbitrarily grouped, and the bar uses too much space. Craig Grannell
1Writer is a smartly-designed Markdown editor and note taker, with a few snags but lots to like.
