Ulysses Review | GadgetMasti

In 2011, two German entrepreneurs, Marcus Fehn and Max Seelemann, founded the company behind Ulysses (opens in new tab). Before that, they had spent more than a decade creating word processing software for macOS users. As the story goes, Marcus wanted to write a novel but struggled to find a suitable resource. He then built a personal word processing tool that turned into Ulysses over time.

Ulysses was initially a macOS-only app, and versions for iOS and iPadOS came later. The app won an Apple Design Award in 2016, giving it formal recognition from the company for whose software system it develops apps.
