Typed is the Best Markdown Editor and Minimal Writing App for Mac.

Typed is a stunning new Markdown editor and writing app for Mac, and the first that improves your focus so you can create great content. Typed makes writing for the web incredibly easy, and its Zen Mode features relaxing soundtracks that help you concentrate.

We write a lot here at Realmac HQ - blog posts, webpages, documentation and more - and Typed is the result of our work to define the ideal writing app. With stunning typography that makes it a breeze to write structured documents, and quick and easy export, we think Typed is the new benchmark for apps that enable you not just to write, but also focus on your work.

"Typed manages to fuse minimalism and usability, with some character too. We liked it the more we used it."4 out of 5 stars, MacFormat
