An Update on the iOS Version of Scrivener

Given the number of tweets and messages we get enquiring after the progress of our iOS version (thank you everyone for your enthusiasm!), I wanted to give everyone a quick update, since there have been some important developments recently. As many of you know, development started on Scrivener for iPad and iPhone early in 2012, […]

Scrivener 2.3 and the Mac App Store – Why the Delay?

UPDATE: Scrivener 2.3.1 is now available on the Mac App Store.

(For those of you who prefer brevity, the content of this post can be summarised thus: Not for […]

The Mac Monochrome Trend – A Plea For Keeping Things Colourful

On Twitter today, someone posted some mock-up screenshots of their ideas for improving Scrivener’s interface: http://dribbble.com/joostvanderree/projects/42516-Scrivener-UI-concept (In his own words: “Based on the Scrivener.

iBooks Author and Scrivener for Mac

Please see the product page here: http://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivener.php?platform=win Scrivener for Windows costs a mere $40 ($35 for students and educators) – slightly less than the Mac version simply because it still has a little catching up to do, given that […]
