Tip - Ulysses 15 Update

Date: 14th May 2019

Duration: 07:03

Show ref: SCOM0838

With the advent of Ulysses 15, some great new features have been added to this very capable writing tool.

In this tip video, Don takes us through the important additions to Ulysses 15 on macOS.

Deckset 2.0

Date: 4th May 2018

Duration: 44:26

Show ref: SCOM0731

Apple gives you some very powerful presentation tools with Keynote, but if you just need to create a great looking presentation quickly the power of Keynote can be overkill. This is where an application like Deckset can really save you a lot of time.

Deckset is a beautiful and easy to use Markdown-based presentation application for Mac. It takes a simple Markdown document and makes it look like you spent a ton of time creating a killer presentation. With just a few links of plain text, Deckset can create amazing looking slides that will make your next presentation remarkable.

In this episode, Mike shows you the ins and outs of Deckset by creating a sample presentation.

SetApp - Productivity Apps

Many apps are embracing a subscription-based pricing model, which is great for developers but can cause subscription fatigue for consumers. MacPaw (the developers of CleanMyMac and Gemini) have a different idea: a service that provides developers with a predictable income stream while limiting the number of subscriptions that consumers have to pay for each month.

That service is called SetApp, and it has been described as the "Netflix for quality Mac apps."

Ulysses is yet another app to switch from a traditional single payment purchase to a new recurring subscription model.

As with previous apps, this has caused much consternation as many people refuse to adopt a subscription model for software applications.

In this episode, I take a look at Ulysses and the changes to the app, along with a potential way of sticking with Ulysses using SetApp, another subscription-based service, but one that gives you access to over 80 Mac apps in addition to Ulysses.

If you really don't want to go down the subscription route, I also take a look at two alternatives to Ulysses: Byword and iA Writer, two terrific, cross-platform, single-payment apps.

Of course, we can't forget to mention Scrivener when considering powerful writing apps. Since I've already covered Scrivener extensively on other shows, you'll find the link to those in the show notes.

Ulysses III - Text Editor

Date: 29th June 2013

Duration: 34:02

Show ref: SCOM0406

Ulysses III is a text editor for the Mac with a slightly different approach. Instead of files and folders, Ulysses allows you to create sheets and groups of sheets (or Stacks in the iOS app), just like sheets and stacks of paper.

All your written information can be managed within the application and sync'd via iCloud, either to other Macs or Daedalus Touch on iOS.

Add in a beautiful UI, support for Markdown, Markdown XL and Textile formatting, Ulysses takes a fresh approach to text editing.
