Ulysses writing app gets a makeover for iPhone X

The subscription-based cross-platform writing app Ulysses received a big update today. Version 12.1 brings a redesign that works with the bezel-free display of the iPhone X, supports Face ID authentication, and more…

In fact, the “more” is what’s really different and important. The developers redesigned the object editors that are used to display links, images and footnotes in the text editor. A tap opens corresponding views, making it much faster to see what you’ve added in terms of photos. On iPhone, images and other items show up in a slideover that comes up from the bottom of the display, while on iPad objects are presented in a popover screen. With images, a tap lets you QuickLook and a swipe sets up deletion or replacement of the image.

Ulysses also comes with another theme called D12. This is a very streamlined theme designed with high contrast and a focus on typography. The D12 theme will be added to Ulysses for Mac soon, and it will be the Ulysses default theme from now on.
