Ulysses III is a brand-new writers' environment from the Soulmen - the fine folks that brought you Daedalus Touch for iPad.
It's built around a revolutionary engine, dubbed "plain text enhanced", which combines the very best parts of minimal markup (i.e. Markdown, Textile) with the power, beauty and simplicity of OS X.
As a single-library app, Ulysses holds all your texts in just one window. No "Open", no "Save", no Finder safari. Full iCloud integration lets you access *everything* from all your Macs.
If you own Daedalus Touch (available on the App Store as a universal app for iPad and iPhone), Ulysses III can even sync your writings across all your devices. Start on the bus, continue at home, finish mid-flight. Export to RTF, PDF, TXT or HTML.
Ulysses III is flexible, adaptive, and built to grow. Use it as a sophisticated notepad, create your next couple of novels, or continuously feed your blog. Keep everything neatly organized, or mess around at will.FEATURES

The "Update all, if you update one"-UpdateSwitched to standard Markdown image syntax (as opposed to MMD)
IMPORTANT: If you're using iCloud sync, we strongly urge you to update all installations on all your Macs to 1.0.3, or else we can't sleep at night. Seriously, we will sit awake or wander the fields and can't do any future development, because we can't concentrate. Don't let this happen.
Update now, and here's why:
Added "Description" field for images (becomes ALT attribute in HTML)
Fixed indentations when exporting code to plain text
Fixed new lines at the beginning of HTML code blocks
Fixed wrong export of UTF-8 line breaks in Markdown code blocks (don't ask)
Fixed the creation of .txt files in External Sources (we thought you wouldn't notice)
Fixed the import of sheets with user-defined markup
Added support for the upcoming Ulysses III exporter in Ulysses 2 (U2toU3.ulysex)
