This month Ulysses issued a major update which takes advantage of a number of features included in the iOS 11 release. The one that caught my eye first was the image previews. When you add an image as its own paragraph, you will see it as a black and white thumbnail. Images within a text paragraph will still appear as the standard IMG-bubble. This lets you see what the images look like without distracting users from the text. Yes, text is king in Ulysses.
The new drag and drop feature allows you to pull in images, attachments, text and sheets. Along with that, you can now quickly move paragraphs up or down within a sheet. Place the cursor anywhere within the paragraph then use control-command-up arrow or control-command-down arrow to move the entire paragraph to a new spot.
Ulysses is now a subscription-based platform. The apps – both on the Mac and on your iOS devices – are all free downloads, but you will need a subscription to unlock all your apps on your devices. That’s one subscription, not one for each app. There is a 14-day free trial available to see if Ulysses is for you. The US subscription is $4.99/month or $39.99/year.
