Ulysses is used and loved by authors, bloggers, journalists and academics from all over the world. Read why below.
Many writers praise the way Ulysses encourages immersion with the text, and testify how using it has considerably increased their productivity. Albeit 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 a Great American Novel – with Ulysses, your writing is in the best of hands. And 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. Ulysses is available for both macOS and iOS, and the apps share an almost 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 confines 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.

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.
Niklas Janz Researcher and Novelist
I don’t exaggerate when I say that my first novel probably wouldn’t have been written without Ulysses. So, as far as software goes, I hold Ulysses very close to my heart.
Janice Jakait Adventurer and Author
Ulysses allows me to focus on my text. Its strength is understatement and simplicity. Everything is there when you need it, but not distracting you when you don’t.

It’s simple, fast and secure. I don't want to spend a second thinking about text formatting while typing. Just hit the fullscreen shortcut and start.

Ulysses is my saviour. My laptop was a mess of files and folders with projects lying around everywhere. Now I use Ulysees to keep me organised and focused.
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.
Niko Formanek Stand-Up Comedian
I have always been looking for the one and only solution for all my writing, no matter on what platform or hardware I am on. With Ulysses, I found it.
Mark Hodder Award-Winning Science Fiction Author
Ulysses has a superpower: invisibility. I can’t emphasise enough how important that is. Ulysses is a master at blending into the background and leaving me in peace.
David Chartier Content Strategist and Writer
The Favorites system is one of the best features for keeping myself on track across multiple projects and clients. I love the right sidebar with notes, keywords, attachments, and the word count.
