The App Simply Doesn’t Work in iOS7
While well designed visually, this application does not actually function as advertised. First and foremost, it is not actually capable of connecting with Dropbox. I am a technically inclined individual, and I was unable to so much as get the application to read or write from Dropbox. Additionally, the HTML preview functionality is broken at best, intentionally left unfinished by the developer at worst. I have not tested other features of this application, because it already does not have several major functionalities promised by the developer. I am left to assume that the positive reviews are written either by paid reviewers or by friends and acquaintances of the developer itself. I wanted to like this app, but until it is updated, please do not give the developer any more money by purchasing the app. Additional note: the developer does NOT reply to any support emails. Anyone who claims that they have good support has either had a wildly different experience or is not speaking truthfully. I’m betting on the latter.

This is the editor you’ve been looking for!
Just works. Seriously, I've bought a few other markdown editors and this is the least buggy, and most versatile app I've found yet. 15 minutes after realizing I had an itch to scratch I had a workflow created and I use it often! Worth twice the price, and I'm enthused to see what new workflows are created by the community!

Very, very, useful
I feel that there is very few power editors in the App Store, to date that have any of the power this markdown editor has. I feel that editorial is comparable to sublime text 2, but more script-able for the general me and not coders. This is especially true with the use of python, which is a high end language.

Just amazing if ure serious about notetaking
A really good markdown editor ! The python scripting makes it very customizable for the hardcore note taker. Replaced Evernote and Byword.

Buyer Beware
This seems to be one of those programs in which most of the reviews are from the developers' friends. It can't even do what it claims as it's main feature: provide HTML preview with the slide of a window. In preview, all the text runs together and without any of the markdown formatting. The only thing that shows properly are bullet points. To be sure it wasn't corrupted, I deleted and downloaded the software again. Still won't function as advertised. Also, claims that developer is responsive are baloney. I've emailed him twice over several weeks and he has NEVER responded. Now that I've outed him, I wonder if - lo and behold - he miraculous answers my emails. Bottomline: Nice idea but beta at best. Plenty of better and cheaper software out there.

Could be better.
I bought Editorial few days ago, because I got tired by the unstableness of Wisdom Writer, which was and still is my favorite text editor so far. I like Editorial. But since I've been using Wisdom Writer for a long time, it is natural to compare these two apps. Wisdom Writer is the only app that has fully in-place Markdown view. With Editorial and other apps, like iA Writer, which I also have but never use, you have to use 'Preview Mode' to check the final Markdown results. It is unacceptable for me. Wisdom Writer can do that, why not others? It is like throw you back into 80's. There is full screen mode in Wisdom Writer, but not Editorial. Full screen is very important for the little screen of iPad. You can change text color in Wisdom Writer, but not in Editorial. For my work, I think Wisdom Writer is good enough, if it is stable, I mean. So I bought Editorial, and it seems more stable than Wisdom Writer. That is very attractive to me. The worst thing that could happen when you are writing is glitch. That will definitely ruin you thoughts. That is why I will keep using Editorial and hope this text editor could be more prefect so I can stop hopping from one app to another. BTW, I don't really care about the Workflow function. It is not for me. Why make a text editor so complex? As conclusion, my wishlist: 1, better Chinese support. 2, fully in-place Markdown view. 3, full screen mode when typing. 4, text color.
