Ulysses gets what matters most to writers. Getting stats like word count and character information is available with one button click. Exporting to popular document formats like .doc and .docx is readily available.
There's no perfect writing application for all types of writers. I've made a living the past 20 years on Microsoft Word on the Mac and on the PC. At its core, Word is the most universal writing tool there is, but even after decades of use, I can't say I've memorized 80 per cent of its functions.
There's been a steady list of writing apps that have tried to get us back to the purity of writing. Much like staring at a blank sheet of paper on a typewriter, the idea is to remove the clutter and allow the writer to simply focus on writing.
The Transit feature in Apple Maps is now available to Victoria and Vancouver as well as other areas in British Columbia. Transit shows public transit information including subways, buses, trains and ferries, with lines and stations right on the map.
Transit is now available to iPhone users in Victoria, Vancouver and other rails in British Columbia, marking SkyTrain trains and bus routes. If you were to click on the Entrances and Exits by train stations, you’d see more detail as to whether it’s an entrance or exit with stairs, escalator, elevator or other accessibility options.
The Transit feature is customized for each city where and can be accessed on Apple Maps in iOS and macOS versions.

There have been a significant number of purported iPhone 7 leaks from casemakers, component manufacturers and part sourcers. While everything is far from official until Apple reveals the next generation iOS flagships, we're seeing some details consistently standing out.
The above video posted on Weibo shows the alleged design of the iPhone 7's enclosure with redesigned antenna lines, a larger camera bulge and, no surprise, no headphone jack. Overall dimensions of the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 dummy shows that it is quite identical to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S. iPhone 7 is also expected to have a Smart Connector and additional speakers, similar to the iPad Pro line. This is all we know so far from extremely unofficial and dodgy sources but its good to see that iPhone rumours are still as exciting in 2016 as they were in 2007.

Following the update for Google Photos on Android, the app’s latest version on iOS brings with it a new cropping tool. So, it’s now easier to edit photos while on mobile. Aside from that, version 1.12.1 also claims to have “improved support” for taking burst photos. Google Photos should also start up faster now and make use of less cellular data. Plus, a feature iOS users will appreciate: less of a drain on the phone’s battery. The app is now available for download on the Apple App Store for free.
