This week MacSparky is sponsored by Ulysses, the powerful, yet simple-to-use, writing app for all of the Apple platforms. With the release of iOS 13 and the new iPadOS, Ulysses was there on day one. The latest version 18 includes all the great new features, including support for Dark Mode and the system Split View on iPad. The Ulysses team has also made the application less dependent on iCloud. If you want, now you can sync your Ulysses library in Dropbox without functional compromises.
I am a fan of this application. I use it for all of my significant writing projects. Indeed, this is very post was written in Ulysses. The reason I like it so much is the combination of power and simplicity. The developers are opinionated and have built a beautiful application that’s fun to write in. At the same time, they have not overloaded it with bells and whistles to such an extent that it gets in the way of your writing. It’s just the perfect balance for me. If you haven’t checked out Ulysses, you should. If you sign up with the links in this blog post, you’ll even get three months of Ulysses for free.
