Adam you have mentioned Byword a few times on the Maccast - I get how it's cool that your notes stay synced between devices... but why Byword rather than, say Evernote? Am I missing something?

I needed a markdown editor for github, and based on Adam Christianson’s review, I decided to buy this on iOS only. It works well and I was able to write up a .md file for my git repository fairly quickly. Its DropBox sync worked well. I only wish it would let you move documents between iCloud, DropBox, and local.
