    How about it? Will it be a good writing tool together with Ulysses?

    With the $10 Pages app for the iPad, it looks like we can expect pretty full-featured writing apps. Really hoping a full-featured version of Ulysses comes out for the iPad!

    Well... Yes and No. Apple is using a fair bit of private API in the iWork app. A lot of nice stuff Ulysses would need as well. But as you might know that we have this problem for the iPhone, for now there is nothing different here.

    I can see myself taking an iPad on trips, whether abroad or to the library, and wanting to use Ulysses. I do not have an iPhone (but have the iPod Touch which may well find itself discarded some time this year...)

    A leading competitor seems content to let you take the lead in the writer's-apps-for-iPad category: http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7368&p=60526&hilit=ipad#p60526

    Go, Soulmen!

    Opportunity knocks here. As a travelling journalist, I'm looking for an easy-on-the-eyes iPad app that allows me see word counts and make notes, email stories in txt, rtf or pdf format, and to transfer iPad articles and their notes to my main computer for archiving. I don't believe I'll be alone in wanting this sort of thing. And at the moment, The Soulmen have this space all to themselves.

    I'll be selling my old iBooks just to buy myself an iPad. My computers will be my desktop Mac mini and my iPad. The desktop will be used for finishing and archiving. Well, the main condition for switching to the iPad would be that the apps like Ulysses will be available on the iPad, and easy secure syncing between desktop and iPad is available. I really don't want to carry a heavy notebook anymore. And I just like the whole idea of touching the interface. The iPod touch is great, but iPad will be even better. At least I can buy Apple Pages, so that's a reasonable word processor. But Ulysses is where I dream.

    Well, the competition is filling the niche. The "My Writing Nook" app seems to be quite nice. The only issue I have with it (no text indent) isn't likely to be addressed in the Ulysses Mobile, anyway :) I like the elegant solution of synchronizing via the Google docs.

    Will keep hoping that the Ulysses mobile is out soon - to compare!

    We hear you, and we'd love to do this. However...

    I've written a blog post regarding the issue. I hope it explains things...
