### DESKTOP-CLASS WRITING APP ###
Ulysses is your one-stop writing environment on iOS. 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 writing on mobile 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 iPad, iPhone or Mac, 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 text 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.

If wishes were horses
Ulysses seems to go through prolonged periods of problematic development, punctuated by bright segments of balance and perfection. Right now seems more like one of the prolonged periods. As soon as I start to dig in and groove on this app, and consequently start to depend on it, it fails me when I need it most. Random hangs, freezes, glitches, slowdowns.... Yes, you can communicate with the developers, and they're nice and seem like hard workers, but I just want to be able to use the app without necessarily having to be a bug tester. I want to be able to forget about the app unless I'm noticing how gemlike it is. I've tried repeatedly to fully embrace Ulysses for years, because it is such a gem. But when my mind is going faster than I can type, I don't have time for futile tapping at an app that's not responding. I need an app that reassures me I can click once and start typing, every time, without fail. For all it's charm and grace, Ulysses isn't it.
This is the one you should get
If you're reading this review, you're probably hesitating on buying yet another Markdown editor, or you're new to the concept. Either way, apps like Byword, iA Writer, etc might have, or can fail you simply because they don't have enough customization that can make the format better to work with while Ulysses does. To newcomers, I suggest a theme called No Tags that will make it read more like rich-text, and to others coming from other apps I say check out Greyhound, ToMASTER, and Prose Writer.
The other thing I personally like about Ulysses is that they make the basic Markdown experience better by adding management tools like groups, filtering, and export options, and aren't trying to make it behave more like a rich-text editor like so many other applications now.
They have great customer support too.
Ulysses is amazing! Tables needed.
Let me start off by saying that Ulysses is my go-to for note taking. Being a college student, it's a much better and easier way to write notes compared to the tons of other products students use, especially Microsoft Word. I can do almost everything I need to and use markdown format to easily keep my notes organized.
One thing that is really needed in this app is the ability to create tables. Tables are too important to leave out of a strong note taking app. It becomes a hassle in note taking when my professor shows a table of information on the board, and I have no way to copy down the same information. Please add tables!
