Just joined - primarily because I'm REALLY looking forward to iOS versions of Scrivener and Scapple. I use them both all the time on my MacBook, but could use them even more if they worked on the iPad as well. So, waiting, hoping, praying ... :-)

I beta tested for another iOS app with test flight and it's a breeze, very easy to use. I bet the L&L crew knows about it

Please, don't finish the iOS version. Please! I have been able to avoid Scrivener for Mac (although it sits right there, silently, on the dock), but if you release the iOS version I will not have anymore excuses for not writing the novel... :)

Keep up the good work, guys!

We do in fact use TestFlight for our internal testing distribution, which considerably eases the whole process for sure. I'm not myself aware of the specifics on whether it would make a good public beta platform, but if it can that is something to consider.

If you need someone on an iPhone 3G running iOS4 without a SIM card, then let me know.

Make that 2! Actually, I have a SIM card... But I only updated to iOS 4 on the weekend. Now I have folders to keep my 7 apps instead of pages. Ah, the relentless march of technology!

I registered just to say that I, too, am anxiously awaiting the official iOS app. I have attempted to use external folder sync with a third-party iPad app, but it doesn't work as well as I'd like. I have two different computers that I use to write (home and office), and between the three devices things just don't seem to sync right.

I picked up a Logitech K760 for my iPad in anticipation of the release(it pairs with three devices, so I don't have that awkward moment of adjustment when I switch keyboards), and am so anxious to have an ultraportable version of Scrivener that I am constantly teetering on the edge of selling the iPad and getting an 11" MacBook Air or Surface Pro 2. I just want something that weighs around 2 lbs and gets around a day's worth of work done on a single charge!

Oh good, I find using iTunes to sync with my iPad to be the best experience for me. (There seems to be a lot of hatred for iTunes, but I personally love it)

I can't wait for this app! I love the desktop version.

Hello all. I had a terrorizing thought. How will the ios7 upgrade effect the progress of the mobile Scrivener app project?

The Lit&Lat folks here have stated that it requires iOS7 to function. They're using alot of functionality from the new Text Kit component that 7 brings to the table, so basically if you don't have iOS7, you won't be able to install iScriv.

That said, my iPod Touch 5 just updated to iOS 7.0.2, so obviously there things amiss with the OS itself, so gods know how much havoc that's going to cause.

For one singular second I thought we were back in 2008! :D

Yup, I'm not sure if we've come out firm on iOS 7 being a requirement yet, but the fact is anything prior to that version requires us to roll our entire editor from scratch, and that is a huge pain. It is singularly the reason why iOS is infested with thousands of plain-text programs and a very small handful that can handle even the most basic formatting like italics. That should all be changing now that iOS 7 is out, it is now nearly as easy to make a decent formatting based editor as it is on the Mac.

So, Scrivener will only run on iOS 7. A project without any shadow. There will be so many shades of pink... I'm really flattened!
