Many writers praise the way Ulysses encourages immersion with the text, and testify how using it has considerably increased their productivity. Although it’s a fully-fledged writing tool, Ulysses manages to stay completely out of your way – and can therefore rival any distraction-free writing app.
Ulysses’ unified library holds everything you’ll ever write, and is equipped for managing writing projects of all sizes and ambitions. Be it love letters, simple notes, daily blog posts or the Great American Novel – with Ulysses, your writing is in the best of hands. Thus, you can focus on getting the words down.
On the sofa, at a coffee shop, or while waiting for the bus: Work wherever you are, and whenever inspiration hits. You can use Ulysses on all your Macs, iPads, and iPhones, relying on an identical feature set. With iCloud, your whole library syncs back and forth between all connected devices, and you can always continue where you left off.
Ulysses can transform your texts into beautiful PDFs, Word documents and eBooks, properly formatted and styled. It also lets you export to HTML, ready to be used anywhere on the web. You can even publish to WordPress and Medium right from within the app. Everything is just a click away, with on-the-fly switching of styles and a live preview built right in.
“Many options” can easily become too many options, and “complex” can get complicated. Ulysses sticks to what is essential for writing, and keeps its advanced features out of the way until you actually need them. It’s a beautiful and focused experience, which turns work hours into fun time.

David Hewson Best-Selling Mystery Author
Ulysses is the only app I know that combines a very minimalist writing interface with the backend power to manage and shuffle around the many different parts and scenes that go into a book.
Ashley Warren Content and Research Strategist
My favorite feature is hands-down the word goal. I like seeing how close I am to my target word count without it being an intrusive counter.
Matt Oldfield Startup Founder
Groups, keywords and filters keep my work organised. The rest of the app just lets me write, without getting wrapped up in the mechanics of it all.
Lauren Layne Contemporary Romance Author
I knew from the very second I saw the screenshots that Ulysses was exactly what I was looking for: a way to write my books scene-by-scene, but in an uncluttered environment.
Matt Gemmell Writer of Action-Thriller Novels
I love the focus of it; the lack of superfluous widgets and features. It’s minimalist in presentation, but there’s a great deal of depth there.
Tiffany R. White Web Developer and Tech Blogger
The ability to publish to WordPress and Medium and add categories, tags, featured images, in Ulysses is the best implementation I’ve come across.
Bridgid Gallagher Fiction Writer and Blogger
I love that I can manage all of my writing projects from one place. Ulysses has already changed my workflow and has helped me work more efficiently.
Neil Dixon Developer, Artist, and Writer
My Ulysses content includes everything from one-line ideas and concepts, to sketch notes for new stories, to 50,000-word draft fiction pieces. I love how I can just throw anything in there.
E. Christopher Clark Author and Teacher of Creative Writing
I love that I can type here in Markdown, the simplest of markup languages, and that from there I can export to any number of beautiful looking document types.
