You can enable the markdown editor by clicking `Markdown formatted` in the note info panel. Tap the eye icon to preview your note as it would appear when published to the web.

We’ve also included a new About Screen in this release as well as numerous bug fixes. A special thanks to all of our open source contributors who helped out!

Happy noting,

Today we’re excited to announce that Markdown support has been added to the latest update of Simplenote for iOS.

To enable Markdown for a note, just tap on the ‘Markdown’ button in the note info panel. You can then swipe on the note editor to view the Markdown preview. Once you’ve enabled Markdown for a note, all new notes you create in the future will have it enabled by default. We hope you enjoy this handy new feature!

We’ve also received a great response to our recent open sourcing of the apps. Thanks to everyone who has been submitting issues and pull requests on GitHub.

Happy noting!
