Typora vs Obsidian
Typora is a minimal Markdown writing and note-taking app. Its signature trick is the live preview of Markdown.
Obsidian is also Markdown editor, mostly known for its powerful note-linking abilities. You can easily build and navigate whole knowledge bases with Obsidian. That said, it's definitely more complicated and less aesthetically pleasing than Typora.
