May 2018 be the best of years for all happy CRIMPers, here, wide and far.

Steve Z, I’m curious why you are looking for “a true substitute for Ulysses”?  Is it the subscription thing?

Thinking of Ulysses—I strongly recommend Emily Wilson’s new translation of The Odyssey—a thrilling, singing, lyrically beautiful version that topped my holiday reading list.

Hugh, I think this will be a good DEVONthink year for you.

Hi, Paul,

Yes.The subscription to Ulysses is expensive—after giving them well over $100 for Ulysses II, Daedalus, Ulysses III and Ulysses for iOS, I’m not too thrilled with the notion of now paying them annually. But more importantly I was also very put off at the way they implemented this policy, especially how they said current users would get a 50% discount, when the real discount was 25%. Their whole rationale—which they wrote about in detail—didn’t make sense to me.  I simply don’t trust them any more.

Steve Z.

Yes! I should’ve specified, something that works with text files would be preferable… other than that, Cintanotes, does look pretty good.

My #1 wish, for several years, is for more (truly) multiplatform / multilocation offerings, i.e. local (Windows/Mac/Linux) +mobile +online.

I realise that this is a lot to ask from solo developers, but it seems to me that there are several infrastructure options out there to support at least part of such functionality. For example, I was interested to see how this tool makes use of Google storage http://www.outlinersoftware.com/topics/viewt/7927/0/my-personal-kanban-free-open-source-browser-local-storage-or-private-gmail-cloud and very surprised that I have not noticed any other doing this.

... on the other hand, it’s Google storage. But yes, I entirely agree with you; massively cross-platform apps would be highly desirable. I’ve got an elderly Linux notebook gathering dust that I still use occasionally (running on the excellent Xubuntu); it’s the lack of compatible software that dissuades me from digging it out more often (it’s an ancient Asus machine with outstanding battery life, so it would be nice to use it more).
