Focus and Get Things Done

So much to do, so little time? With its uniquely streamlined toolset, Ulysses helps you achieve your goals. The distraction-free writing interface lets you focus on your most important task: Write, edit, and write some more.

Ulysses’ powerful editor is markup-based: With a few characters you mark headlines, important passages or comments. Formatting is kept for later.

You decide what your editor looks like. Choose from a variety of editor themes or create your own.

Pursue a daily target, set character limits and deadlines: Writing goals let you monitor your progress and help you stay on track.

Organize Everything

Be it college essays, blog posts, or the next Great American Novel: No matter what you’re working on, Ulysses is equipped for managing writing projects of all sizes and ambitions.

Groups let you organize your writings project- or subject wise. You can break them into sub-groups and sub-sub-groups as you see fit.

Use keywords to categorize your texts as needed, and find them easily.

Ulysses offers comprehensive text statistics: characters, words, pages, even average reading 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.

— David Hewson, Best-Selling Author (“The Killing”)

Write With Confidence

Great writing requires more than a compelling story. Ulysses built-in grammar and style check helps you avoid mistakes and meet the right tone. Available for over 20 languages, it offers informed suggestions for capitalization, punctuation, semantics, redundancy, style and more.

A variety of pre-made formatting styles covers any writer’s needs.

Publish to WordPress, Ghost, and Medium right from within the app – complete with images, tags, categories etc.

“I started using writing tool Ulysses at the beginning of this month. I told myself I was going to commit to using it to write this column to see if it was worth all the hype. Let's just say I won't be switching back.”
“It’s a rock-solid, well-designed writing app for iOS and macOS.”
“Many people want a single app for all of their notes and school-based assignments. The ideal solution should, therefore, have a text editor that's competitive with, if not superior to, Microsoft Word and Google Docs. One such tool is Ulysses.”
