Ulysses is a text editor for Apple macOS, iPad, and iPhone. It is targeted at creative writers who do not want to worry about text layout, formatting, or other distractions, and who want to focus on their words.[1][2] It supports Markdown for basic formatting.[3]


Ulysses was named after the novel Ulysses by James Joyce.

The Ulysses software was originally released for Mac OS and in version 2.5 support was added for iPhone and iPad.

The license for Ulysses has been a subscription model (SaaS) since version 11.[4][5]
