Byword, a popular writing tool for Mac OS, has now landed on the iPhone and iPad as a universal app. Like its big brother on the Mac, Byword for iOS is beautifully designed and supports John Gruber’s Markdown syntax (markup language that easily lets you convert plain text format into XHTML or HTML). More importantly, the iOS version features iCloud and Dropbox syncing. What this means is that you’ll be able to write on your iMac/Macbook, then step away and pick up right where you off on the iPhone or iPad. Other features include word and character counters, auto-wrapping for parenthesis, brackets and quotes, and even support for TextExpander. Byword is now available on the App Store and is currently on sale for $2.99, down from it’s original price of $5.99.
