Live iOS Preview

Just thought of a cool idea / feature request.

I haven't used it, but Diet Coda / Coda 2.0 has this Air Preview feature. You edit on your laptop, and it refreshes a preview on your iPad as you type.

This would be great to have for writing Markdown as well. Whenever I'm writing in Byword or iA writer, and previewing in Marked, I have to command-tab back and forth because on my 13" Air, there's not enough room to have them side by side.

But if there was a Marked app that could run on iOS, it's main function could be to just open up files from Dropbox, or it could have a simple editor in it that you could type a new document in. But the killer feature would be this live preview over wifi. Prop the iPad app next to your air and get a perfect preview of what you're working on.

We can dream can't we?

    You should run an app like iDisplay and just drag a Marked window onto your iPad… not to say this will never happen, but it's a working solution for now.
