I have simulated “night mode” by choosing my own set of colors; I can also change the default family and size font, and there's a wide list to choose from. And I also love zoom. Daedalus looks great, but only has predefined styles, sizes, and fonts. For example, even the “big” font size is still too small for my taste (and visual needs).
I guess I'm not saying this as pure criticism, but to share my user experience, so this can also be considered for a future iScrivener. For me, choosing the font family, size and color at will (instead of three predefined options) makes all the difference. The fact that I can't change font and background color in iWriter is one of the reasons why I seldom use that app. And the fact that Daedalus “big font” is still small is another reason (especially if I'm writing at midnight, or after a long writing session).
And yet… Daedalus still looks and feels great… I kind of need a “frankenstein-app”…

Thank you for your recomendations. The screenshots don't look great at all; so I don't know if I'm going to invest on them. Are they as efficent as Notebooks when syncing? Or do they behave like Daedalus, or iA Writer (after the last update, with Dropbox files editing but no real syncing)?
As for Notebooks interface, what I've done (and that's the best I've managed to make it look more comfortable for writing) is put away all the distractions: the side bar, the keyboard bar…, and set font and background colors to emulate “night view”. It kind of works; not as Daedalus, but it's not completely hideous either. I also write a lot on Daedalus, or iA Writer, and then copy and paste into Notebooks. That also works sometimes.
