Works with iPad Ver­sion 2.0

If you’ve used Ulysses for Mac, you’ll feel right at home on the iPad, as the three-col­umn in­ter­face is the same. The two plat­forms sync via iCloud, so it’s easy to start a doc­u­ment on your Mac and fin­ish it later on the iPad.

Even on an iPad mini there’s plenty of room to work, as the file-man­age­ment col­umns slide away to de­vote the whole of the screen to your typing. The key­board takes on an ex­tra row of but­tons, too, to han­dle tabs and cur­sor move­ment, undo and so on. If you’re not au fait with Mark­down you can in­sert el­e­ments such as images and videos from popup menus and have them con­vert to HTML on ex­port.

When you’ve fin­ished work­ing you can ex­port your file in for­mats in­clud­ing HTML, PDF and ePub. All in all, this is a very im­pres­sive show­ing. Nik Rawl­in­son

One of the most ac­com­plished iOS text ed­i­tors, and one that will gen­uinely help you get more done.
