I love Ulysses the way I could publish easily to Medium/Wordpress website directly from the apps.

Surprised this isn't at the top honestly. Yeah, it's a little pricey (it's included with SetApp for $10 per month, though), but it's very much worth the price. I do a lot of writing and this is my immediate go to for anything. Built in publishing tools for Medium, stunning interface, incredibly stable. It does it all.

Medium has replaced Wikipedia as the unintended reading-based time suck for me. I'll start reading one and end up on there for a couple of hours without realising.

Last year, we covered Jono Brandel and Lullatone's addictive site Patatap, which turns keyboard strokes into sounds and animations. Now they're are back at it with Typatone, an app that turns text into a lovely little xylophone melody. Like Patatap, Typatone puts a note to every keystroke, and typing out a message composes a song.

There's nothing like it for Android, unfortunately. A few come close.

Keeping a journal is a pain in the ass. It's a scientifically-proven wonderful thing to do-to preserve your memories, explore your feelings, record the things you do and notice and care about-but it's a lot of work to sit down every day and get your Dear Diary on.
The Verge
Mac and iOS journaling app Day One received an extensive overhaul today, the result of a two-year development period that saw its creators rebuild the software from the ground up, and re-release it as a new app on the App Store.
The Sweet Setup
If you're looking for the best journaling app, or a great app for logging and recording various events and milestones of your life, then by far and away the best journaling app is Day One. Day One has outstanding apps for the Mac, iPhone, and iPad that all sync.
Macstories
Day One, the well-known journaling app by Bloom Built, was an unmistakable success. On both iOS and Mac, it amassed multiple awards for both its design and quality of the experience. Through positive reviews and loyal users, Day One rose to the top of the charts and received recognition from Apple's App Store team.
