Versions

With version 2.0 I’ve segmented the original award-winning app into three distinct products, based on community and customer feedback!

All of the products are built with the same underlying quality codebase and user experience. The main differences are as follows:

  • Desk NT (Notetaking): All features in the original without blog publishing.
  • Desk MD (Markdown): All features in the original without WYSIWYG editing.
  • Desk PM (Publishing Machine): The original product with both Markdown and WYSIWYG publishing.

The Original (PM) product has the following features:
