[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Independent developer Anh Do today is thrilled to announce the release and immediate availability of Writing Kit 3.0 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. This major update features more powerful additions and existing feature refinement.
Writing Kit is a robust Markdown editor for iOS that comes with advanced, full-featured researching tools. WIRED Gadget Lab calls it "a mobile research room" while AppAdvice praises "If you're one who frequently use Markdown and do research while writing, then Writing Kit is definitely for you and worth the admission price".
Version 3.0 contains the following changes:
* Added: New fancy icon
* Added: Clever Return Key. This will automatically create new paragraphs, add list items, extend block quotes and code snippets when you tap on the Return key. If you don't like it, turn it off in the in-app Settings > Clever Return Key
* Added: Redesigned File Drawer screen, with ability to sort files by name and modification date. Note that the New file button has been moved into this screen as well
* Added: Swipe with 2 fingers on iPad to the left/right to undo/redo. Shake to undo on iPhone

* Added: Readability mobilizer. Text-only mode is now powered by Readability mobilizer by default. You can change it back to use Instapaper mobilizer by going to the Settings app > Mobilizer service
* Added: Paste from Clipboard button in Insert Link/Quote dialog
* Added: Convert Inline Links to References command in Tasks > Markdown Source Code
* Added: Completely revamped Quick Research interface
* Added: More than 300 !bang commands from DuckDuckGo
