Re: Working on Scriv whilst someone reads in Dropbox

I'm at that transition stage with my novel, where I need to get it to beta readers. They prefer to work in MS Word, as does my editor and the copy editor and proofreader. They all use the built in change tracking to show their changes. Easy to compile from Scrivener for that, but then I'm committed ...

Re: Scrivener for iOS - When?

I'm no longer waiting for this for my iPad. I might have tried it if it was available a year or so back, but would likely not have stuck with it. Because of the iPad. I've found I really prefer Windows and mouse clicking on a PC to the iPad touch environment. Plus, my iPad 2 gets slower and slower a...

Re: Scrivener for iOS - When?

Just to clarify re all this talk about syncing - only works on the Mac. So us PC users have been pretty limited as to what we can use for a work-around.

Re: Scrivener for iOS - When?

In that case, speaking of the arrival of the app, I should mention that my stop gap is a Moleskine Sketchbook and a black Pilot .5mm roller point pen. I like the heavy paper in that particular book, and the pen gives a beautiful dark line, with just enough drag on each stroke.

Re: Scrivener for iOS - When?

I still will use my PC version of Scrivener for writing, and especially editing. Part is to deal with my biggest barrier to effective writing, procrastination. There are too many sparkley things in life. Sitting at a PC and setting a timer works for me - as opposed to using a iPad in a coffee shop. ...

Re: Scrivener for iOS - When?

I would be concerned over loss of control when making any application open-source, especially with a relatively small user base. How do you determine that changes are what users want, as opposed to those that programmers think are interesting and/or easy? How do you manage updates? Is everyone then ...

Re: Scrivener for iOS - When?

Great to hear it's going well. I started in 2010 with Scrivener on Windows for my first NaNoWriMo and have used - and enjoyed it every year since. As my network or writers grows, I find most are also Scrivener users - Mac and PC. If not, I try to persuade them to switch. I have been impatient at tim...

Re: Scrivener for iOS - When?

Nice stop gap - but it's a Mac world thing I think. Don't think my Windows version knows about syncs.

Re: Scrivener for iOS - When?

Me too - be glad to be a beta tester. I ran field trials with Bell Canada before retiring so can appreciate the challenges in getting those final glitches out. I have been a PC Scrivener user for several years, and have an iPad 2 and wireless keyboard - ios8 of course - that I would love to integrat...

Yay! Looking good!

I really hope this initial IOS version also syncs to the PC version of Scrivener.

Re: Where has the iOS Wish List Gone?

Thanks for taking the time for this detailed reply. I admit I'd been hoping for a version for NaNoWriMo, but is good to see a firm 'no' for that, so that I can get back to worrying about the story.
