Taking another look at Ulysses

Now that I’m about to become the proud owner of a spanking new MacBook Air, I’ve been taking a long, thoughtful look at the applications I really need, as opposed to the ones which, as an inveterate CRIMPer, I merely toy with.

And Ulysses has caught my eye. I’ve tried to like ConnectedText - but I just can’t do it. Intellectually, I can understand its appeal; as a user, I very quickly get frustrated and annoyed. But Ulysses III 1.2 (to give it its full label) looks like a very attractive alternative, especially now it’s got a full-fat tagging feature. Text-based, Markdown-supporting, outliner-style all-in-one writing, notekeeping and commenting app - yup, that’s attractive. I like Scrivener, but Ulysses just looks all round more… integrated.

Any Ulysses users out there who’d care to comment?
