Tackle NaNoWriMo With Ulysses.
For Free, on All Your Devices.

Welcome, Wrimo!

First-off: Congratulations to your decision to participate in NaNoWriMo, the ultimate writing marathon in November. We’re glad you found your way here and want to use Ulysses to accomplish the 50,000 words!

It’s the fourth time we’re sponsoring NaNoWriMo, and once again we would like to give all Wrimos the opportunity to write their novels with Ulysses, completely free of charge. However, something’s changed this year, and this little something could make all the difference. The first time ever, you’ll be able to try Ulysses not only on your Mac, but also on your iPad and iPhone! All your texts will seamlessly sync via iCloud to all of your devices. That way, you can actually use each possible moment to get closer to your goal.

To activate your NaNoWriMo trial, please proceed as follows:

  1. Download Ulysses from the Mac App Store and/or the App Store, and install it on all the Macs, iPads, and iPhones you’re planning to use during NaNoWriMo.

You’ll only need to use the link once, the trial will sync automatically to all of your devices. Also, please note that you need to be logged in to iCloud with the same Apple ID on all your devices in order to benefit from synchronization.

And that’s it! Your trial will run to December 7, 2017 without any limitations. After that, it is going to switch to read-only mode with export still enabled.
