Popular writing program Ulysses received an update to its iOS app today, bringing a revised interface and full compatibility with iPhone X.

Various interactions in the Ulysses UI have been reworked, and the app now fully complies with the all-screen design of the iPhone X's OLED display.

Ulysses iPhone X
Beyond the changes induced by the iPhone X screen, the update brings redesigned editors for objects like images, annotations, notes, and footnotes. The text counter has also been tweaked based on user feedback, as has the automatic fullscreen mode.

In addition, Ulysses now also supports Face ID, Apple's new facial authentication system, to complement its privacy options, which previously only offered passcode protection. With Face ID enabled, writers can unlock their text libraries with a simple glance.

Lastly, the app ships with a new default editor theme, featuring sparsely applied colors and bold black headlines, which the developers say is simpler, cleaner, and more typographic.

Ulysses can be downloaded for free on the App Store and the Mac App Store. After a 14-day trial period, a subscription is required to unlock the app on all devices. A monthly subscription costs $4.99, while a yearly subscription is $39.99. Students can use Ulysses at a discounted price of $11.99 per six months. The discount is granted from within the app.

All that subscription money and they’re just now getting around to releasing a version optimized for the X?

Oh well, I guess it’s worth it; the headlines are “more typographic” now.

I strongly recommend just subscribing to the great Setapp service.

Ulysses is in it, so for a really quite reasonable $10/mo, you get this app and a hell of a load of others that are useful.

Sure they'll be stuff in there that is rubbish or you personally simply won't need. But the great thing about it is there is something for pretty much everyone, so it offers a way forward instead of having to buy apps that don't do what they say they do, only to have the money gone forever, and having to buy another to get the job done.

Subs have pros and cons, but with entertainment streaming services being massive, surely it doesn't take a leap of the imagination to guess app subscription services are the next way forward in this realm.
[doublepost=1511475103][/doublepost]Another thing to add, is that subscription services also mean the app can offer things like website access, so you can access and use your 'stuff' on the web, along with the apps themselves.

And what's good for the big boys (Office365, et al.) is therefore good for the more moderate boys too, lol!
Nice advertisement lol

Ulysses? What's Ulysses? The little app I once bought and used, to abandon it later when the authors decided in the future they wanted me to pay them forever?

Couldn't care less...
