Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Ulysses app reviews

I have used Ulysses for approximately five years and bought several versions of the app before the change to the subscription model. While there is no debate about Ulysses quality, my doubt has increased in relation to the subscription cost to new feature ratio. For example compare an office 365 annual account. While I like Ulysses, the subscription model increases the onus on providing value. I remain unconvinced. For example, in the latest version 13 the creators flaunt things like highlighting keywords and a target to set writing goals. Sure this is useful, but is it valuable in comparison to say, pinch to zoom. Something that seems pretty low on the evolutionary scale for iOS and macOS but remains absent in the Ulysses feature set across all IOS and MacOS.

I use Ulysses for organising my thoughts, my website (blog posts), my first book (now with the publishers), and am also using it for writing an online course and for my second book. Love how I can switch between phone, ipad and mac. Love using markdown, setting goals and colour coded keywords. Just wish it had support for tables, as I have to switch to Google Sheets for those. It’s a clean, simple, beautiful, adaptable and reliable - thanks team Ulysses!

One of my favourites! Writing is a difficult thing to do, and so removing as much friction as possible can really help. You don’t need to complicate things. This is why I love Ulysses - it’s simple enough that it allows me to focus on the important bit: the words. And yet it’s powerful enough to adapt and become a real workhorse when I need to do more than just write. Seriously, just use it for a while and you’ll see. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
