David Sparks over at Macsparky has released another fantastic iPad book. This time it’s Markdown he’s after and the Markdown Field Guide looks like a stellar book on the topic. David co-authored this release with Eddie Smith of Practically Efficient.
I’ve been writing in Markdown for years but I know I’ve only scratched the surface of what’s possible. I’m eager to have David and Eddie show me the rest. Go and get Markdown from the iBookstore now.
There’s a terrific post up at Practically Efficient today that explores 5 features of Instapaper in-depth, including folders, search, data entry, online extras and iOS tips and tricks. I had no idea I could create my own folders until I read Eddie’s post.
He wraps up with a wish list for future builds, including this gem:
“Add PDF support. PDF are very pesky in my ‘read later’ workflow. If I could somehow ‘pin’ them to my Unread folder in Instapaper, that would be huge.”
I’ve often wished for just that. Go and read the whole article.
