So this is a bonus post today. Not really a bonus for you, more for me unless you are a Byword fanboy who loves to promote the software.
I’ve read several blogs lately (one, two, three) that reference Byword. Now that I am doing a lot more writing, I’m wondering if this is something I need. I currently do all of my writing in Evernote. I don’t really format my text as that is handled on my website using CSS. The little formatting I do is done with HTML when I create a link, use italics, a list, etc.
In other words, for writing projects, I’m already using Evernote as a straight text editor. I have the desktop software, the apps for my iPhone and iPad, and at work I use the browser version (since I don’t want my stuff synced to my work laptop). With Evernote, I have ready access to my resources files and things I’ve clipped from the web or emailed into Evernote. That seems like more of a reason why I wouldn’t want something like Byword.
However, I understand that it is hugely popluar among a number of writers I follow and respect, so I’m curious as to what I may be missing. I would appreciate it if you would leave a comment below or send me a message on Facebook or Twitter.
Thanks in advance.
Why Do I Need Byword When I Already Have Evernote?
