### A Text Production Powerhouse
Ulysses’ markup-based, distraction-free editor lets you focus on your most important task: Write, edit, and write some more. Formatting is kept for later, so you can completely immerse yourself in the text. Ulysses’ uniquely streamlined toolset covers the entire writing process, and its clean and simple interface will boost your productivity. From first to final draft, from prologue to closing chapter – Ulysses keeps you in the flow, so you can get stuff done.

### All Your Texts, All the Time
Everything you’ll ever write is stored in Ulysses’ unified library. You can manage projects of all kinds and sizes, be it novels, diaries or study notes – they are always saved, and automatically in sync. And since Ulysses offers feature parity across macOS and iOS, it doesn’t matter where you are or when inspiration hits: All its tools, and all your texts, are always at your fingertips.

### Built-In Proofreader and Editing Assistant
Write with confidence, thanks to Ulysses’ integrated grammar and style check. Available for over 20 languages, it analyzes your text and offers informed suggestions for capitalization, punctuation, semantics, redundancy, style and more.

### Create eBooks, DOCX, PDFs and HTML
Ulysses’ export is flexible enough to cover any writer’s needs: Transform your text into beautiful PDFs, Word documents or eBooks. Or export HTML code, ready to be used anywhere on the web. You can even choose between a variety of pre-made formatting styles for all kinds of purposes, or create your own and share it with other users.

### Publish to WordPress, Ghost & Medium
Do you blog? Ulysses’ offers best-in-class publishing to WordPress, Ghost, and Medium. You can post to WordPress and Ghost from right within the app – complete with images, tags, categories etc. Publishing to Medium works just as easy, and all three offer a built-in preview to proofread before submission.

Must have, super value

I have been using Ulysses happily for years and I would recommend the app to anyone who needs to
write texts, at lease time to time. I am happy to pay the subscription for your continuous effort. You are doing a great job, so thank you!

Výborná appka

Přesně takový editor jsem hledal.

The new subscription model is overpriced. There is a lot of apps with similar functionality without subscription. There is no sense to pay subscription for text editor.

Developer Response ,

We are sorry you feel this way. Given the full functionality of Ulysses, we believe that the price of our subscription is justified. For about the equivalent of one cup of Starbucks coffee per month you get vast organizational opportunities, fully customizable export, attachments, setting writing goals and the ability to publish blogs in an environment that allows you to fully focus without being distracted by anything thanks to a simple and intuitive interface. Should you miss any particular feature, you can always send us your feature suggestions via –Lisa
