# I decided to cancel my subscription for Ulysses. I thought if it's too easy to put it straight back on then it's not a proper test.

The current subscription period ends in three days so that's when the real test starts.

If I don't miss it then thanks, it's been fun. If, on the other hand, I find I can't live without it, I can always subscribe again.

    I think the cache plugin was causing a problem so I’ve disabled it. I use Drafts 5 (beta) for just about everything now.

    Drafts has a beta? Is it iOS 11 only? How can I get on it? And yeah, caching plugins play silly games.

    How do you like Ulysses? It's an awesome app, but how they "hide" the markdown always drove me nuts.

    funny you say that - been revisiting Ulysses for second time and finding so much more than I understood first time round ..
  5. hjertnes says: #
    If you're making a plain text app and I can't CMD-A CMD-C (or select all and copy on iOS) to get the markdown out of it – you failed.
  6. Colin Walker says: #
    I like it - mostly. The way it handles code blocks is annoying, it never seems to work properly especially when importing from somewhere else. Hiding the Markdown wasn’t so much of an issue for me. I just don’t use it much now so why pay for something I don’t use.

    I can understand that, and using it purely to post to my blog maybe that's why I didn't mind it ;)
  8. Colin Walker says: #
    Not since Poster was acquired and shut down. And I personally wouldn't say the official one is actually any good.

    It’s not bad, but it feels like a web app. I'm considering to start working on one.

    iA Writer can create new posts on Wordpress. It’s been my choice for writing posts. Can publish to multiple places from there. I especially prefer the interface it provides along with, of course, export/share options.
