    I've been using it for 3 yrs now. I've tried countless others, but I keep coming back to iA Writer because it looks good and works consistently.

      I deep dive into writing rituals using this software. Tough to explain beyond it. But they have gotten their UI perfect for a writing mode.

    A beautiful, flexible writing app for notes and prose

    I've been using Bear as my primary note-taking app. It's really simple, supports Markdown and has a great tagging system. Highly recommend for writing blog posts!

      I searched high and low for a replacement to the Mac OS default Notes app, which is incredibly limited in functionality and insufficient for my needs. I had one twist - I needed to find a note taking app for Mac that did not sync or store notes in the cloud. Bear does just that and it happens to be great. I really enjoy the hashtag categorization system and ability to have multiple tags on a note. It's a twist on Evernote style tags, but with a lighter-weight style of notebook organization and management.

      Overall I love Bear. It is beautifully designed. I love the simple interface and the ability to tag notes is amazing. It makes searching for old notes so much easier. This is better than Apple Notes and I love it so much more than Evernote.

    I love Ulysses not only is it a pleasant to the eye, it allows you to organize all your documents and sync them across multiple devices.

    Just like you wanted: clean, simple, and, of course, with Markdown. Includes syncing capabilities. Forever free syncing, to be precise :)
