Store Performance Index shows overall performance of your app on app stores. It is based on combined ASO & reviews metrics.
User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.
Editing my previous review (bumping it up to four stars from three)... A couple of weeks ago, I slammed Ulysses for recent iCloud sync issues. Then I did some more research and learned it's not alone in that regard. Indeed, many if not most so-called "shoebox" or central-library apps — like, to name two very familiar examples, Apple's own Notes and Photos apps — are prone to them, too. It seems to be the nature of the beast. If you value having all your work together in the same library at all times without having to futz around with individual files and folders, the risks that go with the "shoebox" method are part of the price of admission. So I withdraw that previous complaint. Indeed, if it were not for that method of file storage and the occasional (but sometimes scary) glitches that accompany it, I'd give Ulysses five stars. For most of my work, I prefer the advantages of MultiMarkdown and a more transparent file structure than what Ulysses offers. That said, I still recommend it highly; it's a great app and a marvelous writing environment in which you'll spend many hours working happily and productively.
It was nice while it worked. However it appears all of my data is gone. On my iPad pro In the non-subscription app, everything says “Downloading”. In the subscription app, everything says “Downloading”. ON my iPhone it says there’s nothing in iCloud. It does not make me feel any better to find out others have had similar issues, and that the developer basically says on their site that it is not their fault because they have limited visibility into how iCloud works or any iCloud logs. It hurts even more when I see they say that they do not store your data in iCloud - as in iCloud is not a backup service but is only for synchronizing between devices??? Really? That’s why have have 2TB just for syncing between my devices? Anyway - it appears all of my data is gone no matter what I do. All of my other apps update right away - but theirs I can wait hours and it still says “Downloading”. Nice! What a feature! To think I bought the app and less than a month later they changed to subscription - and based on confusing e-mails from them I ended up paying full price again - wonderful - and then to find out they cannot even make sure I still have my data months later. Wonderful! I did not know how good I had it before I used their service. Great markup. Easy to use. And evidently easy to lose all of your data too.
Those who hate the subscription model need to get over it: there are (apparently) plenty of simple Markdown-centric text editors that will meet your needs. Dinging Ulysses out of sheer bitterness won’t make you feel better, provide useful input to others, or change the need for a sustainable economic model for serious software developers. Ulysses is a serious writing tool for serious writers. It may take some getting used to if you are coming from the world of Word, or similar “word processors,” but if you are more interested in content rather than the formatting, Ulysses will reward you with a clean and powerful writing environment. My own personal experience mirrors that of many others: initial skepticism in the early days growing to familiarity and fondness. Ulysses’ developers are living up to their promise to deliver an increasingly powerful and refined writing environment, with regular and substantive updates. If great apps like Byword or Apple’s Notes meet your level of writing needs, great: simple tools for simple needs. But, if you write a lot, I heartily recommend Ulysses.
I am using the trial subscription at the moment. They give full use of the app for the trial, comparing to similar apps who don’t do this, this is a very smart move. It’s like going to the dealership to buy a car and they let you take it home for the night. You get hooked. As far as I can see this app only has one competitor you can compare it to and those who have surveyed all the similar apps know which one I am talking about. But this app tops that because it keeps it simple. My writing is complex enough, so I need simple where I can find it. It is simple but powerful. You can get organized to your heart’s content; you can export in a number of formats and in those formats choose styles from a user exchange; you can write in a number of formats. Yes, I do not like the subscription cost. I am willing to pay it but will always be looking for a competitor as good as this one. I will jump ship as soon as I can when I find one. But for now I am willing to pay the subscription because this is as good as it gets, at least for now.
Just to put everything in context, I'm mostly a blogger and essayist. For large scale research projects and other tomes, a much more heavy duty tool like Scrivener is the tool of choice. For me, Ulysses allows me to freely write without a lot technological interference, yet it is feature rich and I can still do word processory things if I still want to. I can export my work as an ePub, Docx or a PDF, but what I most appreciate is that I can directly to my WordPress blog without ever leaving Ulysses. Ulysses is also very Apple centric. Thus I have versions installed on my Mac, my iPad and my iPhone. And as Ulysses stores my projects on iCloud sharing between platforms is totally transparent. Since I normally work remotely, I typically start a new blog entry or an essay using an iPad, but if some rare moment of inspiration hits me and I'm out and about somewhere, I can grab my phone, open up Ulysses and not have to loose them fleeting moment. A very valuable plus for me.
