Hi! My name is Shawn Blanc, and I run a nerdy Mac website called, The Sweet Setup.

Our goal here is to help you make the most of your time and attention. We do this by researching the very best apps for your Mac, iPad, and iPhone.

We also know a lot about workflows, staying focused, and best practices. That’s why we’re visited by 500,000 readers every month.

With Learn Ulysses, we'll teach you how to get up and running with the best writing app out there for Mac and iOS.

Ulysses is the Best Writing App for Mac, iPad, and iPhone

There are a lot of great options available in this golden age of writing applications for Mac and iOS, but we believe that none of them are as finely tuned or have the degree of polish that Ulysses does.

Just last year (2016), Ulysses won the prestigious Apple Design Award. This app is a perfect combination of powerful writing tools wrapped within a beautiful and distraction-free writing environment.

Ulysses provides all the tools you need to be a more productive writer while still maintaining a simple interface that limits distractions so you can focus on accomplishing your writing goals.

It provides an abundance of value for the power and organization it brings to your writing desk.

That’s why we use Ulysses, and that’s why we want to help you learn Ulysses and discover everything it’s capable of doing.
