The anticipated update for Ulysses on iOS—Ulysses Mobile v2.5—is available on the App Store.  The app is now universal for all iOS devices, iPhone, iPad, iPad Pro.  After a few minutes with it I think the winning features are full support for Split View, especially on the iPad Pro, and the new share sheet.  Split View makes reading and writing side by side a pleasure.  When Apple updates iOS to support dragging text from one side to the other it will just get better.  The share sheet is good when browsing and collecting snippets of info. 

I’ve also been experimenting with iThoughts on one side and Ulysses on the other—doing reserach and collection in iThought’s browser, arranging outlines, and exporting it to Ulysses in the other pane.

The share extension is beautifully designed.  Select text in a document in some app, select Ulysses from the share menu and the text opens in an intermediate window so you can edit if and choose what group in Ulysses you want to send the text to.  If the selected text comes from a browser, the share extension automatically adds a link back to the source web page. 

I’m using Ulysses here on an iPad Pro that I bough in anticipation of this Ulysses upgrade (and, eventually, Scrivener iOS).  No regrets—it’s a great writing environment.

Okay, Paul, now I’m dribbling with envy… but my FD won’t countenance an iPad Pro, ever since I snuck a couple of iPod Touches through on my IT budget (for filming corporate videos, honest!).

Ulysses does look frickin’ awesome!

There’s a good review of Ulysses 2.5 for those who don’t know it (and even for those who do) on MacStories:

Ulysses for iOS has an update today that includes Dropbox sync.  Formerly, Ulysses iOS only synced via iCloud, and a feature to open from Dropbox, but not sync.  Dropbox sync with Ulysses has been a frequently requested feature, apparently.

Unfortunately, it looks like it might be unreliable, according to this:


I use Ulysses for iOS quite a bit, but I used iCloud sync and never pined for Dropbox sync—so I have nothing of significance to test the new Dropbox sync, myself.
