Daedalus Touch 1.2: Markdown, ePub and iOS5

October 26th, 2011

Daedalus Touch iPad ePub Export iBooks

So, there it is: Daedalus Touch 1.2 — available now at every iTunes App Store known to man. Only on iPad. Only on iOS5.

This is the second feature-update we’ve put out since the original release. We’ve added lots of stuff, but the two most prominent new features are Markdown support and ePub export. So allow me to elaborate on these a bit.

First off, we’ve added Markdown as an export option, available if you export to PDF or ePub. You can choose it by switching the “style” setting from “none” to, well… Markdown. We support most of Markdown’s syntax: Six levels of headers, ordered and unordered lists, links, emphasis, code, block quotes, line breaks, you name it.

There’s no support for images, as Daedalus can’t handle images and iOS won’t let you access anything outside of an app’s own space. There’s also neither support for tables nor for nested lists or nested block quotes within nested lists of block quotes. More on that in another post.

Then again, you’ll be pleased to know that we now *do* support all kinds of special file.extensions. So if you’re in the camp of .mdown or .md, we got you covered — during import, synching and export.

Ulysses 2.1 released via Sparkle (aka non-App Store)

September 20th, 2011

Title says it all. :)
App Store version is waiting for review; fingers crossed that it will see release within the week.

One thing worth noting: We’ve merged Ulysses core and Ulysses standard with this version. So all core users who install the update, will have the full version afterwards. No extra cost, of course.

Oh, and Ulysses 2.1 requires an Intel Mac running at least OS X 10.6. So if you happen to run PPC/10.5 or such, you might not see the update. Just so you know.

Have fun everybody, and thanks a lot for your patience.
Cheers,
Marcus

PS: Our website still features 2.0, since that’s what’s currently available on the Mac App Store. We will update the site as soon as we get approved…

Like living on the cutting edge? Here’s Ulysses 2.1rc.

September 14th, 2011

Alright, so here’s the version we’d love to submit to Apple. Which is also the version all our non-MAS customers will get via Sparkle. So please have a go, give it a shot, we’ve changed quite some bits from the last beta.

Download Ulysses 2.1rc

Changelog 2.1b
Changelog 2.1b › 2.1b2
Changelog 2.1b2 › 2.1rc

As a reminder: We’ll submit to Apple and push the update via Sparkle simultaneously. This means that non-MAS users will get their hands on 2.1 a bit earlier than MAS customers. It also means that in case of App Store rejection (you never know, you know), MAS users will have to wait even longer and we’ll have to add another .1 in order to keep both versions in sync.

So, please, if you’ve purchased Ulysses on the App Sore, don’t go out and rate us down (or whatever) just because your version is not the same as what might turn up on MacUpdate or some other site we can’t influence. Ok? Deal?

Nice, thanks. :)

Oh, and before we forget: We need some really tough guys and gals to help test with some really cutting edge stuff regarding the Mac App Store version and some super-secret NDA-features. You don’t even need to have bought it on the MAS to help, you just need Mac OS X Lion. Anybody?

Cheers,
Marcus

Daedalus Touch 1.1 released on App Store, iPads across the world cheer in joyful anticipation

August 12th, 2011

Just a quick heads up regarding Daedalus Touch 1.1: It’s live now, you can go and grab it via the usual channels. We’re extremely proud of some of the stuff we packed into this update, even though most of it was user feedback anyway. ;)

So, thanks for your ongoing support, and happy writing.
Next up: “Back to the Mac…”

UPDATE: This is really hard… [Daedalus Touch]

May 25th, 2011

This is soooooo very embarrassing…

UPDATE: Version 1.0.2 has been approved by Apple and should already be on the App Store. Big, big thanks to the review team for the speedy turnaround.

This post should’ve been a celebration. Instead it’s a warning: For the time being, please *DON’T* download Daedalus Touch from the iTunes App Store.

Yeah, it’s released, and yeah, we’re quite happy, but we have identified a severe bug which causes the app to crash. If you have 1.0 installed, please refrain from updating to 1.0.1 and wait till the next update is approved by Apple.

We’re awfully sorry and are banging our heads on various tables. If you’re affected by this bug, please accept our apologies and be assured that we’re trying everything we can to get a fully-funtional version up again.

Thanks for your patience and ongoing support.
Marcus

Ulysses going Mac App Store…

November 26th, 2010

Ulysses Mac App Store

Who would have thought that our first AppStore-App will be Ulysses?
Soon to be followed by Daedalus.

What else to say? We made it. Finally. Wish us luck!

2.0 done and I am finished…

July 13th, 2009

Well, here we are. Ulysses 2.0 is finally out, and apart from a few early hickups with the store, everything seems to go rather smoothly. This may change, of course, once everybody comes rushing in, but so be it. We’re prepared. ;)

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everybdy involved with this rather stupid idea of taking a small software company and turning it around 180 degrees. Max and I had this vague concept, and while it took us far too long to make it happen, we’re very happy with where the Soulmen are today and glad everything worked out just the way it currently does.

Reboot.
Check.

We are close…

July 11th, 2009

… just wanted to share the status quo here:

Ulysses Disk Image

You might notice that the disk image icon is still missing.
This is how close we are :)
