Ulysses Turns 19

Ulysses, a writing app and markdown editor, turns 19. It adds material sheets, mouse and track support on iPad and keywords in Markdown Files and provides various fixes.

Ulysses Sheet Layout

This writing app offers a different approach to turning your ideas into text. The basic unit is not so much a document but rather a “sheet.” A sheet is where the nugget of your idea, sentences or paragraphs are entered. Once you have created several sheets, you can order and nest them into groups for export in various ways.

Ulysses Cloud and Folder Support

By storing your Ulysses file in the cloud, you can work from your Mac or iOS device anytime the urge or impulse to write strikes you. The developer states “On iPad and iPhone, you’re now able to embed external folders from locations in the Files app, such as cloud storage providers or Git clients, and edit the contained files with Ulysses.” The ability to sync requires a subscription.

A main idea behind this writing app is to help the writer spend more time getting the thoughts down and less time worrying about formatting. The goal is to take the stress off of what the finished document will look like and help the attention be focused on the ease of entering the text and idea.

Ulysses Mouse Support Apple recently introduced mouse and trackpad support for iOS and Ulysses takes advantage of this.

You can try Ulysses for free. Download it from the App Store. All subscription plans contain a free trial. It is fully functional and syncs to all your Macs, iPads and iPhones.

So, if you are interested in trying out a new way to think about document creation, check out Ulysses.
