### WRITE. ANYTHING. ANYWHERE. ###

Ulysses is your one-stop writing environment on OS X. Whether you’re a novelist, a journalist, a student or a blogger – if you love to write and write a lot, Ulysses gives you a uniquely streamlined toolset, covering every phase of the writing process:

- A powerful, yet simple text editor.
- A familiar, no-nonsense text library.
- A comprehensive and truly flexible multi-format export.

Of course, the heart and soul of a writing app is its editor. And Ulysses is said to have the best text editor in the world. It offers everything you need – from markup to images and footnotes, from links to comments and code –, and it still manages to stay completely out of the way. It’s a beautiful and focused experience, which turns the every-day chore of writing into *actual fun*.

But since Ulysses takes writing seriously, it does not stop at the editor. Its unified library offers unprecedented access to everything you’ll ever write, be it snippets and ideas, be it blog posts or manuscripts. Every text is at your fingertips, and Ulysses perfectly scales from scratchpad to diary to Great American Novels – and to everything in-between.

Best of all, Ulysses offers fully-fledged, no-holds-barred, all-out iCloud sync. Ulysses is available for all your devices, be it Mac, iPad or iPhone, and every device has access to everything and anything you’ll ever write. Synchronization is simple, seamless and automatic. It neither requires third-party apps, nor any kind of interaction. If you got iCloud, you got sync.

And once you’re finished, Ulysses transforms your texts into beautiful PDFs, web pages, ebooks and Word documents. You can copy as HTML, save as Markdown, and even publish to your WordPress and Medium accounts. Export is as easy as selecting a format, choosing a style, and picking a destination. Yes, 1-2-3.

Customer Reviews

Love this app!

I use Ulysses for both academic writing and blog posts. It’s perfect for use across my iPhone, iPad, and Mac. When I’m finished writing an academic paper, I export from Ulysses to MS Word for final APA formatting before submission; I could use Word on all of my devices, but it’s a terrible writing environment, always getting in the way. Ulysses is simple, uncluttered, and perfect for the job of writing, and I use other tools for formatting and publishing; write first — just write — edit and publish later. I’ve found this to be an outstanding system for productivity.

Best writing experience ever

I use Ulysses to write papers in combination with Ulysses for iOS on my iPad, the integration is seamless and works great. What I love is the clean user interface and te possibility of having dark backgroud with lighter text. You will love that if you have for write for a full day in 1 hour chuncks (as in a PhD program).
Also, not having to worry on every single paragragh about the format is one of the best parts, you just write. When you need to send the document, you can use one of the templates, or spend some time (only once!) to create your own. In my case, I spent about 2 hours tweaking my current template, in order to choose where the page numbers appear, what font to use on every section and title, etc. That’s all, once the template is donde you don’t worry about that EVER again, its a wonderful feeling.
The way I use Ulysses for academic writting is to write the first draft in Ulysses, export to word, insert tables and references with my reference software in word and then send it for review. So far, that workflow works great for me.
