Byword de-emphasizes the syntax itself while emphasizing its effects. It appropriately adds style, like italic and bold, to text that's designated by markdown and dims the syntax so it does not get in the way of comprehension. Additionally, there are commonly used hotkeys (⌘b, ⌘i, etc) that can be used to apply style without having to know the syntax or having to type it out each time. See More
Byword is as simple as Markdown editors can get. Even though Markdown itself is not hard, Byword offers assistance to make it even easier with very little configuration required. The UI is minimalistic and un-intrusive, the syntax auto-completion is excellent, and there are multiple small but helpful features that make writing Markdown with Byword a breeze. See More
One of the things that makes Byword so easy to use is the fact that it needs very little setup and option-tweaking. However, that severely limits the ability to customize the editor itself. For example, there are only two themes available, a light one and a dark one. See More
CreaWriter's main selling point is the fact that it adds atmosphere to its workspace. By default there's a background with a sunset over water and a sound of trickling water, but the background and sound can be changed to anything to create the desired atmosphere. Along with background and sound, CreaWriter has options for customizing transparency, font size, family and color, status bar information and visibility, etc. See More
The paid version adds useful feature such as word count, text styles (bold, italic, underlined), hotkeys, autosaves, ambient sound volume and customization options such as configurable text color, text areas's color, size, position and transparency, and adjustable ambient sound volume. See More

Customizations can be made to a wide range of Emacs' functions through a Lisp dialect (Emacs Lisp). A robust list of existing Lisp extensions include the practical (git integration, syntax highlighting, etc) to the utilitarian (calculators, calendars) to the sublime (chess, Eliza). See More
