I’m a big fan of markdown as a way of writing. I generate most of my content in Markdown using Byword for Mac and Byword for iOS, supported by tools like Editorial, MultiMarkdown Composer, nvAlt and Marked.
These tools allow me to put together blog posts, as well as write articles, reports, training programs and even books. The cool thing is that with Markdown I can write once and then reuse the same content easily in multiple formats.
Now I can use Markdown to create brilliant presentations using a new Mac app called Deckset (available in the Mac App Store). The following Slideshare presentation—created in Deckset and embedded here—is my review of Deckset.
The short version—Deckset for Mac is great. Go get it.

My friend and mentor Grant W Graves is not only a diving guru but is also a degree qualified marine scientist. In the diving world, Grant is one of the foremost connectors in the industry. He literally knows everyone in diving.
Last December Grant launched a new initiative—Soggy Science. Soggy Science is a weekly video roundup of news about the aquatic world.
Divers everywhere will enjoy the way he makes nerdy topics fun and approachable.

- ∞ Deckset – a great review by Ben Brooks on Deckset. I've already created and delivered a preso with Deckset and found it *super* easy. I'm planning my own review
- Dropbox Announces That Mailbox Is Coming To OS X – interesting!
- Tips for Getting the Most Out of Fantastical for iPad – I'm liking Fantastical 2 for iPad, and Gabe's tips are helpful in getting under the hood.

- Fantastical for iPad Review – I know this is the third link to Fantastical 2 for iPad that I've posted here, but you can never go past one of Federico Viticci's epic reviews.
- More On The AppleScript Improvements In Latest iWork Update – Apple certainly has an unique approach to app release for major version changes—strip back to the bare essentials then re-add features but in a new and vastly improved way. Its an annoying approach as a user, particularly in the short term, but you can see that from a developers perspective it makes sense.
- Fantastical 2 for iPad – David Sparks confirms my thoughts on Fantastical 2 for iPad.
- Fantastical 2 for iPad – I've been really looking forward to this release. Just downloaded it setting it up for me. I suspect it will bcome as big a part of my iPad workflow as Fantastical is on OSX and iPhone. I got a bit of 'sticker shock' at the A$12.99 price, but good software has value, and I suspect it will be worth every cent.
- Apple Updates iWork Suite with Design Tweaks, New Features, Sharing Improvements – Very pleased to see the improvements in iWork, particularly for the OSX versions. The iCloud enhancements should also prove useful.
- App Store Prices Are Being Raised In Australia, India, Indonesia, Turkey, And South Africa – Got to love the Aussie dollar…
