For a personal touch at the time of gift giving, the developers suggest complementing it with a handmade greeting card – and offer various free patterns on their campaign website (http://ulyssesapp.com/xmas). Of course writers can also purchase only one app license to keep it, or gift Ulysses to two or more of their fellows.
