So you run a site using WordPress and you want to write content on-the-go with your iPad or iPhone, but what’s the best app to use to publish? Sure there is the standard WordPress for iOS app and there are others such as Blogo, but lately I’ve found the best solution to be an app called Ulysses.
Ulysses isn’t only designed to publish content to WordPress, it’s a full-fledged text editor that includes several features such as Markdown support, iCloud integration (so you can sync documents in Ulysses across your iOS devices and your Mac), publishing support for WordPress and Medium, and more.
The app is beautifully designed on both iOS and macOS and it really does offer distraction free writing. Not only do I use Ulysses to write posts while on-the-go I also use it for all my note taking, including for business calls, to write out to-do lists, etc. It’s by far the best writing app I’ve ever used.
Additionally, the way the app makes it incredibly easy to add images within the post is something you probably take for granted on a desktop/laptop computer, but when using an iOS device reducing the friction of adding images is something to be applauded.
That being said, while Ulysses is certainly the best app I’ve found for publishing content to WordPress, I’m not sure there will ever be a perfect solution due to the fact many WordPress sites are highly customized with various plugins, making it difficult for any one app to offer a perfect solution for every individual.
Check out Ulysses for yourself and let me know what you think in the comments!
