I’d like to thank Brett Terpstra for sponsoring Finer Things in Tech and DavidChartier.com this week with Marked, his fantastic, liberating, but not-an-editor Markdown utility.

If you like to write in Markdown, a system for writing web-friendly text without all the ugly HTML, but you don’t want to be bound to a specific Markdown-friendly app, Marked is your solution. You can write Markdown in any app you want, then use Marked and its customizable tools to preview your changes in real time. Marked allows you to copy your text to the clipboard as HTML, export to PDF and RTF, quickly navigate your preview, handle footnotes and table of contents, and more.

Marked is a must-have for any writer who uses Markdown, and it’s just $3.99 in the Mac App Store.
