@Gabz @kaa Thanks for asking. I have used both iA Writer and Ulysses since the early days of both development. The main thing that had me decide on iA Writer was plain text files. I have easy access to all of my writing and if I want to, I can open the files with pretty much anything that accepts plain text. That's important to me.
I am also aware that I can get side tracked by things like playing around with themes. For me iA Writer just allows me to focus on the writing.
Having said that, a couple of things that I miss from Ulysses are:
- having a place "in app" to put clippings or notes for a piece that I am working on. Right now they have to go somewhere else, or are highlighted in some way in what I am working on.
- sometimes I find the white background of iA Writer too bright and the dark theme too dark. I'd like something in between. A third option.
