Writing utensil Ulysses has been updated for new editions of iOS and macOS Mojave. From Monday, September 17th, the app will be updated to Mac Share Extension as dark mode, support for Siri shortcut, and most useful feature.
Starting with version 14, you can work with another application and send text directly to Ulysse’s sheet. That is the term the application uses for the various things you wrote. Rather than having many separate documents, there is a single application database that splits your writing into sheets.
There are also general improvement points. The columns enumerating all the sheets were redesigned to larger, more definite titles.
For iOS: Free for an in-app subscription of $ 4.99 per month. Currently iOS 10 or later is required: New features after September 17 may require iOS 12.

The alloy is a fast launcher for your iPhone or iPad: it can replace a series of steps with a single initial tap. This is similar to Workflow and Siri Shortcuts, but it is meant to be learned and used faster.
In this new version, the function to use alloy is added from the message. Alloy has optional actions to work with Message. You can also copy the result of the step of the application directly to the message and send it to someone.

Dark Sky 6.0.4
The recently updated weather iPhone app Dark Sky has revised Apple’s components. The local forecast details are refreshed faster and the current temperature is displayed.
