A while back I reviewed some of the alternatives to the mainstream word processing tools. I’ve always held that word processors are not designed for writers: they are office administration tools first and foremost.
Now I’ve come across a very promising new writing software package, called Ulysses. I haven’t tried it yet, but if you’re looking to break up with your word processor, and you also use a mac, then this one might be worth a look.
Ulysses was developed mainly for writers who work creatively with text and want or need to realize large amounts of text. All currently available word processing systems on the market do not or just merely grasp the specific needs of this group.
If I find the time (and that might be tricky) I’ll give it a trial and write a review. If you’ve tried Ulysses, please let us know how it went in the comments.
