It feels like every second counts in the lead-up to a paper submission or a grant deadline. If you want to continue your writing while on the go, check out the Ulysses app. The app at its core is a no-nonsense text editor with great organizational capabilities. Users can add multiple projects and organize them with folders of text, images, and additional notes. The editor itself is equipped with powerful markup tools, allowing users to add headings, footnotes, and images to each document with ease. Each document also includes a convenient readout of metadata, such as the number of words and characters within the sheet and its total reading time. Documents and projects can be further organized using keywords and everything can be synced to the cloud for future editing on the desktop app. Ulysses is a great tool for writing on the go that ensures your thoughts in transit are still well-organized and accessible later on.
