Publishing to WordPress with Ulysses 2.6

Publishing on iOS has never been a terribly smooth process for me. The closest I got was the Blogsy app, which had a WYSYWIG editor and support for multiple blogs. Unfortunately it had an interface made for iOS 6 and just couldn’t afford to keep up with subsequent iOS updates.

The next best thing has been the official WordPress app, which can handle the three self-hosted WordPress sites that I post to. I write in Markdown in another app like iA Writer or Ulysses, and then post the draft as HTML into the WordPress app, and then add extras like categories, tags, and pictures. It doesn’t take very long, and it mimics what I’d do on the desktop, but the WordPress app feels pretty uninspired to me. It works, but lacks the polish of the web app. It’s not fun to use.

My latest workflow has been using Ulysses 2.6 and its new publishing features, which can take my Markdown-formatted post, and then add images, categories, tags, and even featured images and excerpts. All before I ever even see the WordPress interface.

This doesn’t sound like a huge deal but for the fact that Ulysses doesn’t seem like a full-fledged online writing app. I expect it to handle text well, but I’m surprised at how smooth they’ve managed to make the publishing and previewing processes.

How to Manage and Edit the Mailboxes on your iPad


The most widely used email client on iOS is the default Apple Mail app.  Sure there are other email apps out there that are much more feature rich and great to use.  However, the masses typically go with default programs that come pre-installed in their devices.  In addition, if you aren’t the type of user who dives down deep into your settings, you generally miss out on some clever, helpful little tips on occasion.  This is one of them.  Did your know that in Apple Mail you can add additional mailboxes and personalize your views to show only the mailboxes and sub mailboxes you’d like to see?   Surprisingly, I was unaware of this feature and accidentally stumbled across it one day.

In order to add or edit mailboxes start by opening the mail app and selecting “edit” in the upper right corner.  Once you do this you will see a collection of new  mailbox  that can be added to, or replace any of your current mailbox views.  These can be supplemental, or organized in the order and preference you choose.

My Main Concern With Apple Notes: No Good Export

Feeling Trapped with Apple Notes_1

The last time I wrote about Apple Notes was in early July. I wrote that post to try and balance out all of the very strongly-worded posts about dumping Evernote and jumping to Apple Notes, the newest free note-taking solution that synced across all Apple devices.

I can see why most people don’t want to have to pay for a Notes solution, so moving from Evernote to Apple Notes seems like a very easy switch. However, I was wary of fully committing to Apple’s service because there doesn’t seem to be any easy way of getting your data out of the service in a meaningful way. You can get plain text notes to export from Apple Notes…but that’s about it. All the pictures, rich URLs, media, and any files you’ve attached to your notes…those can’t be exported en masse or imported into any other service at this time.

Despite all of that, I decided to give Apple Notes another solid try for the past month and a half.

Ulysses 2.6 for iPad

I can’t believe they’re calling Ulysses 2.6 a dot update. Adding WordPress publishing, Dropbox sync, and universal search feel like much more than that. And, they even had the nerve to add Typewriter scrolling, which was my #1 feature request ever since Ulysses made it to the iPad. Am I happy with this Ulysses update? No. I’m ecstatic.

Here, let’s talk about why.

Quick Look: Mountie Monitor Extender


Tell me if this sounds familiar to you–you’re working on your laptop and you wish you had just a little more real-estate on your screen.  Having another window open can go a long way unmaking you more productive.  Maybe it’s your email–maybe you are a heavy Twitter user, and you like to keep the app open and active, or perhaps you want the extra screen for a  FaceTime or Skype call.  Whatever the reason, there aren’t too many functional and affordable options out there to choose from.

While searching for options, I came accross the Mountie from the folks at Ten 1 design.  Not only was it pretty much exactly what I was looking for, but the minimalistic design and affordable price tag were icing on the cake.  Available in both green and blue, the Mountie offers a convenient and easy way to add an additional monitor to your MacBook or PC without adding unwanted bulk to your set-up.
