So simple and clean...


Design of the app is so simple, smooth, clean and really cool.
The app size is so light and it is one of the things that attracted me.
It has a really interesting feature like dark and light theme and you can export your notes as a PDF, HTML and RTF.
BUT it has doesn’t have some features like that you can’t use images in your notes but I’m looking forward to seeing more improvements to this app.

Great if you want simplistic


Once thought about buying in-app purchases, but now I think that as long as I can use Drafts on my iPad and iPhone, I will have no need to do this. Also, I kept the previous non-subscription version of Ulysses on my Mac, so I can so far still use that for free. Until these things change, I will not need any in-app purchases from these people.

I like it better then the rest.


I am grateful that the creator of this app wants to keep it simple to the core. The writing experience is very customizable, although It stays very streamline when working with text. This means that user experience is uninhibited. If you have used ia writer you know that as they continued developing it, it got bogged down with bells and whistles. The developer of this app is very intent on keeping things simple. I personally much prefer this app to the others. The in app cost for full features is very fair and reasonable.

Most of the features are customizable, although maybe not the type of font. I don’t think you will see the ability to work with pictures in the development of it, but you can use emoji’s, special characters, and of course markdown. This is a writers app, not so much a note taking app, or a blogging tool, as far as i can tell. It allows people who like to write the ability to do so in an unobstructed way. You can work with different types of text files, and export as pdf. There is also a feature that lets you jump between chapter headings easily.

I am looking forward to seeing more improvements to this app but if you are like me and just want to write, this app has pretty much everything you need. One thing I would hope, is that it somehow would differentiate itself from the rest as far as personality goes. Like I said above, simplicity is its best quality. Its got great features, it just needs more of a personality to stand out.
