I’d like to welcome my sponsor for this week, Ulysses. Ulysses is the best writing environment on the Mac, iPhone and iPad for any form of writing. All of my blog posts begin their life in Ulysses, authors use the app (with David Hewson saying “The app is amazing. An absolute delight to use. Well done.”) and researchers uses Ulysses to compile and keep notes organised.
I think Ulysses is the top markup-based, distraction-free editor available, it lets you focus on your most important task: Write, edit, and write some more. Formatting is kept for later, so you can completely immerse yourself in the text. Ulysses’ uniquely streamlined toolset covers the entire writing process, and its clean and simple interface will boost your productivity. From first to final draft, from prologue to closing chapter.
Everything you’ll ever write is stored in Ulysses’ unified library. You can manage projects of all kinds and sizes, be it novels, diaries or study notes – they are always saved, and automatically in sync and since Ulysses offers feature parity across macOS and iOS, it doesn’t matter where you are or when inspiration hits, its tools, and all your texts, are always at your fingertips.
