I like Ulysses too. Ulysses III is in a different class from Ulysses I and II. I can’t remember whether Steve Z. has drawn attention here (he certainly has on his blog) to the author David Hewson’s review of the new Ulysses: http://davidhewson.com/2014/04/29/ulyssess-iii-growing-up-fast/#more-12554, and also http://davidhewson.com/2014/05/13/managing-a-book-project-with-ulysses-iii/#more-12574. I agree with Hewson’s review: in particular, horses for courses - in a toolbox for writing, Ulysses can play a role that is different from Scrivener’s. Also well worth reading is Steve’s description on his blog of his use of Ulysses III as an application for a ‘spark file’: http://welcometosherwood.wordpress.com/2014/04/09/further-ruminations-on-the-spark-file/. I have Ulysses III and Scrivener on my MacBook Air (and Daedalus, which synchs seamlessly with Ulysses III, as my main writing application on my iPad).
