Ulysses – The ultimate notes App is finally here

Finally found my notes and text app?

This has been a VERY long road that has taken in testing, adopting (and then ditching):

  • Ulysses
  • Apple Notes
  • Evernote
  • OneNote

And yet, here I am, back (for the long term this time) with Ulysses

What has changed?

In short, Sync – That is what has changed… In the past, the work around of using Ulysses on a desktop and Daedalus on iOS to get notes onto both platforms was a whole bag of hurt.

Well, I am pleased to say that that issues is no longer here – Ulysses for both Mac and iOS (Phone and iPad) sync seamlessly, using iCloud sync.

Moving from Notes

Apple notes has improved massively in the past 6-9 months – Good functionality, great sync – Basically, it is now an option.

But for me, Ulysses still feels like another level of “pro” app – and the fact that there is now a way to import from both Evernote and Apple Notes directly into Ulysses means that the transition for most people should be a painless experience.
