Why is there no Auto Markdown on the iPad or iPhone?

Update: We’ve very pleased to announce that with the release of the free update iA Writer for iPad and iPhone 2.0 that Auto Markdown is now available, along with support for MultiMarkdown. Enjoy!

[Auto Markdown](http://www.iawriter.com/writer-for-mac-guide.html#markdown) is our name for the subtle formating of Markdown syntax on-screen, currently only in Writer for Mac. We would like to add this feature to Writer for iPad and iPhone too, but we have not found a solution that meets our quality standards… yet. We will keep working hard to bring Auto Markdown to Writer for iPad and iPhone.

You can read more about Writer’s Markdown support in our knowledge base article “Markdown syntax reference guide”.
