### A Text Production Powerhouse
Ulysses’ markup-based, distraction-free editor 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 – Ulysses keeps you in the flow, so you can get stuff done.

### All Your Texts, All the Time
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 save, 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: All its tools, and all your texts, are always at your fingertips.

### Create eBooks, DOCX, PDFs and HTML
Ulysses’ export is flexible enough to cover any writer’s needs: Transform your text into beautiful PDFs, Word documents or eBooks. Or export HTML code, ready to be used anywhere on the web. You can even choose between a variety of pre-made formatting styles for all kinds of purposes, or create your own and share it with other users.

### Publish to WordPress & Medium
Do you blog? Ulysses’ offers best-in-class WordPress & Medium publishing. You can post to WordPress from right within the app – complete with images, tags, categories etc. Publishing to Medium works just as easy, and both offer a built-in preview to proof-read before submission.

### Pricing
Ulysses requires a subscription. We offer monthly and yearly subscription plans, as well as a special discount for students. There’s also a fully functional 14-day trial, so you can test Ulysses (including export and sync) before you commit.

All plans unlock the app on Mac, iPhone and iPad, and feature full iCloud synchronization.

Editors’ Notes

A clean and simple writing interface.

Ignore the Bitter Reviews

TheKemer

Those who hate the subscription model need to get over it: there are (apparently) plenty of simple Markdown-centric text editors that will meet your needs. Dinging Ulysses out of sheer bitterness won’t make you feel better, provide useful input to others, or change the need for a sustainable economic model for serious software developers.

Ulysses is a serious writing tool for serious writers. It may take some getting used to if you are coming from the world of Word, or similar “word processors,” but if you are more interested in content rather than the formatting, Ulysses will reward you with a clean and powerful writing environment. My own personal experience mirrors that of many others: initial skepticism in the early days growing to familiarity and fondness.

Ulysses’ developers are living up to their promise to deliver an increasingly powerful and refined writing environment, with regular and substantive updates. If great apps like Byword or Apple’s Notes meet your level of writing needs, great: simple tools for simple needs. But, if you write a lot, I heartily recommend Ulysses.

Can't help but feel ripped off

TheAmazingToby

When I bought this app, I paid full price for a full license. Now that the devs have decided they need more money and have switched to a subscription model, my license was taken away. To me, that feels like a rip off, and I really think Apple needs to step in. I would be more than happy to stay with the version of the app that I had bought originally, and forego any updates, but that doesn't seem to be possible. So my $10 for the iOS version went down the drain. I haven't looked at my desktop version. Luckily, I haven't upgraded macs, so it's still installed, so here's to hoping.

And to all the apologists squawking back about "the developers need to get paid" and "maybe you don't write enough to need a paid app", well, good points. But the publishers shouldn't have changed pricing models the way they did. I paid full price for an app that no longer works due to a policy change after I'd bought it. Not my fault, and yet here I am without my rightfully purchased license.
