iPad and iPhone users can count on major functionality enhancements, as we have brought the iOS app closer to its Mac counterpart. We’ve adopted the latest iPhone/iOS features and design concepts. Also, we added the much requested editor image previews.
Much requested, finally here: Instead of the `img` tag, images can now also have a preview in the editor. You can toggle image previews, and determine their size, via Preferences (Mac) or the editor settings (iOS).
iOS 11 Drag and Drop
We have incorporated Drag and Drop throughout the iOS app: You can reorder sheets, move sheets between groups, drop images and text into the editor, move text around in the editor, drag text from Ulysses to Page, drag links from Safari in Ulysses, and more.
Single Library on iOS
We merged all sources on iOS into the main Library. As an added bonus, you can now also have content “On My Device”, right next to iCloud and/or Dropbox.
iPad Multi-Pane Editing
Bringing the iOS app ever closer to Mac, you can now keep the sheet list (and Library, if you’re on the big iPad Pro) open while writing. Or the attachments.
Library Focus on iOS
Swipe a group to the right – and hide everything else. Extending “distraction-free” to the Library…
Fully Optimized for iPhone X
With a polished visual appearance and a number of reworked interactions, Ulysses now looks great on iPhone X. And it supports Face ID, the face recognition system on iPhone X. When enabled, writers can literally unlock their text libraries at a glance.
New Editor Theme
The new default editor theme features sparingly applied colors and bold black headlines, making for a simpler, cleaner and more typographic look & feel.
