What’s the best MarkDown text editor for Android?

Flick Note Android
I have done a video on how I blog on my iPhone with MarkDown[1], using ByWord. You can see it below. I think it works great. I did the whole 2000 word long iPhone 5 review in that way.
So my question is, is there any good MarkDown editor available for Android[2]?
It must have Markdown preview and copy HTML[3]. And preferably support MultiMarkDown. I need my Footnotes when blogging.

Update: Draft is the best Markdown Text Editor for Android (Play Store):

Epistle - IMO

Emacs in a local ConnectBot along with Hackers Keyboard? Nah, I guess that’s a bit too hardcore for most people…
Jason Bayton
I believe all three have HTML output + markdown.
Flick note supports MultiMarkDown.

I hope there’s an Android equivalent of Byword. That app’s great on iOS for markdown.
One with markdown preview and copy to HTML functionality. It’s good to see how the markdown code looks on a web page…and good to have a way to quickly cut-and-paste the final HTML code to a blog. Stefan’s already shown how Byword does these things on iPhone…and having tried it out today, I’m impressed…but sometimes, I only have my Android with me, so an app almost as functional for that OS would be nice.
Will give them a try at some stage. Denote and Epistle look close.

I think Flick Note looks most interesting because it supports MultiMarkDown. But not as beautiful as ByWord though

  1. If anything prettier than Epistle, preferably with MMD, I'd consider it. But I need to have control over the notes as plain text files. AFAIK, FlickNote (which I did buy) is too restricted in that sense. I don't want to rely on Simplenote.

    1. Can't you just save the notes to DropBox as you can with most markdown editors on iOS?

    Problem is: the all keep your data for themselves, and the only way to share it with you Desktop writer is usually to give them either to DropBox or their own associated data-grabbing webapp. Seems that plain .txt is out...
