Clear and Ember developer Realmac Software today launched Typed, a new Markdown writing app for the Mac that emphasizes a minimal, responsive UI with multiple export features and customizable typefaces.

typed_app_1
When a user is writing inside of Typed, the app's interface automatically scales text to fit the current window size and contains a live character and word count functionality. Content written inside of the app can also be automatically exported to a number of formats including HTML, RTF, and PDF with auto save and auto preview options.

typed_app_2
The app also contains a full screen feature called "Zen Mode" which includes six soundtracks designed to help a writer's focus, and contains six font choices with one signature typeface that differentiates headers from body text. Typed also contains intelligent cursor placement when formatting text, keyboard shortcuts akin to other writing applications, and support for OS X Yosemite and OS X Mavericks.

Typed is available for $19.99 from the Realmac Software store.

I'm assuming someone forgot to write "Sponsored Post" in the title, because I can't fathom why else MR would be reporting on the release of a second-rate word processor.

So basically this is a huge shameless rip-off of OmmWriter, Byword and iA Writer... I'll pass.

I wonder why this post is even on MacRumors. Sounds like a paid article to me.

There are many, many, many other Markdown editors that are better than this and are at the same price point. Everyone makes their app minimal, clean, and fullscreen. It's a standard of the format.

I don't understand why a struggling company like RM bothered.

Given the way many of the recent articles have been written I've been inclined to assume the same.

I wish this was a LaTeX editor instead, as I write nearly all my reports and important documents using that (with Sublime Text and the LaTeXing plug-in). At least I'll never touch Word or Pages again.
Ah, so there would be a market for at least two users :)

Didn't know about the Sublime plugin... interesting, I'll try it. I use TexShop currently.

*cough* Byword *cough*

But yeah, for those of you who question why there's a need for such software, I can tell you I love working in raw text and then having the option to move to whatever platform I like easily. Two years ago I didn't get it either, but these days, you'd be hard pressed to get me to work in that unforgivable bloatware that is Word. It's pretty much relegated to layouts for me. I create my content in raw text.

In Byword, FTW. ;)
couldn't agree more.
