Scrivener is a writing application that many authors swear by. (Word, on the other hand, is the application that many authors swear at.) An iPad version has been promised for years, but it’s been delayed by various development issues. But it’s here now: the iOS version of Scrivener finally went live at the App Store this morning; here’s the iTunes link. It costs US$20 (C$28) and uses Dropbox to sync with the desktop version.
I use Scrivener myself; buying the iOS version was frankly a no-brainer for me, as I suspect it is for a lot of other writers, who’ve been frothing at the mouth to get their hands on this for a long time. I don’t anticipate writing a novel on my iPad, but I do look forward to being able to peck away at a work in progress when I’m away from my iMac or MacBook.
