→ Ulysses for iPad now Available

My favorite writing app for Mac1, Ulysses, now has an iPad version2. I’ve been on the beta for this app for the past couple of months and have written everything from blog posts, to contracts, to full legal briefs in it. It’s everything you love about Ulysses but in a much more portable format. Highly recommended.3

→ Federico Viticci’s New Book on Writing with Editorial on the iPad

Federico has a new iBook on writing with Editorial on the iPad1. As someone who has completely moved my iPad writing workflow over to Editorial, I was pleased to find some new tricks that help make the app even more powerful.

For $2.99, this book is a no-brainer for anyone who uses Editorial2, as well as anyone who wants to help support Federico and the great work that he does.

→ The Verge Reviews iPad Keyboard Options

My fiancĂ© has been looking into getting a keyboard for her iPad. I use the Apple Wireless Keyboard with an Origami Case, but that can be a little bulky. Based on the options presented here, it looks she’ll end up choosing either the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover or a ZAGGfolio.

iOS Default Apps

Last week, John Gruber, had a series of posts on Apple not allowing iOS users to set the default browser or mail application on their devices. I agree with what Mr. Gruber says and I, personally, wish that I could set Sparrow1 as my default mail application. Until then, my “workaround” is to run the default mail application to notify me of new emails and then open Sparrow to do that actual email processing.

The First Release from Bungie Aerospace

It was on June 30th of this year, that Bungie announced its new Aerospace imprint. Bungie Aerospace is a partnership effort between Bungie and mobile / social developers designed to allow independent mobile developers to utilize Bungie’s resource sources. Now, about 2 months after that announcement, Bungie announced the first came from the imprint: Crimson: Steam Pirates. The game runs on the iPad and promises:

turn-based gameplay coupled with a “mystery” that, as mysteries are wont to do, needs uncovering, Crimson: Steam Pirates certainly has presentation in the bag.

Best of all? The game download is free and comes with the first 8 chapters of gameplay. The second group of eight chapters will cost $1.99.
