Knowing that I probably shouldn’t be doing this but doing it anyhow because the itch is there I setup an OmniFocus trial again.

For instance there is a suggestion to, instead of using Ulysses’ native CloudKit support to create a Ulysses folder in iCloud Drive and useContinue reading “Ulysses 19 released, odd reviews ensue”
