Ha, yes, Typora - I entirely agree with you; what a superb Markdown editor it is!

It’s just a bit tragic that there isn’t an iOS version, but it’s vastly superior to almost everything else for sheer stunning elegance if nothing else. For those who don’t know, Typora uses MultiMarkdown (i.e. tables, tasks, etc.), but the hybrid preview you’ll be familiar with from e.g. Bear, Ulysses etc. is in fact a full preview. Only when you start editing a header or sentence does it either show the markdown code or, e.g. in the case of tables, a very clever embedded menu that offers you additional formatting options.

The only downside? It’s very much a single-file app, so no library etc. If you want a similar app that also has a more sophisticated hybrid preview (not unlike Typora), take a look at TextNut.

Thanks for the hint to Typora. I like the looks, will give it a try. Though I just bought a license for Write (http://www.writeapp.co), another Markdown editor.

A cautionary note about Typora: It renders your text so beautifully that you’ll be disgusted with the way your writing looks in Bear or most any other editor.

Okay, I’m kidding, but only just barely. Text looks great in Typora.

And…there’s a Windows version. Good to see a developer with common sense.
