Congratulations Keith. Purchased my copy yesterday and will buy one for my wife today. Also a glowing review on my blog.

Now get on with the novel, you slacker.

Like others, I have tried and rejected several other apps for that spot in the workflow between research and editing a finished draft--WriteRoom, CopyWrite, Ulysses, NoteBook, DEVONthink, and probably several others. With Scrivener you seem to have hit the nail on the head. I'll keep DEVONthink for my note-taking, but I'll be writing my next book with Scrivener. Thanks!

First application I've seen that makes it hard to stop writing. Got one for home and one for the office -- that should cover a few celebratory rounds at the pub.

Of course my cynical side thinks this is all a marketing ploy by Keith to drum up a loyal audience for the novel he has undoubtedly finished months ago ;)

Keith

It's only wednesday evening and there are already 5 pages of glowing praise and thanks for the release of Scrivener.

I guess this starts page 6....


Nice that the launch coincided with a high pound sterling to US dollar exchange rate - an even bigger bargain.

Thanks

Tony

Congratulations, Keith! It seems superflluous to add more, but you deserve every single congrats that comes your way and many more. No doubt Steve Jobs will be in touch with you soon about bundling Scrivener so as to sell more Macs.

Best wishes,
Linn

Keith,

Well, it's a hell of a program, that's for sure. I've enjoyed watching the process from beta to blast off, and I'm proud to purchase a copy of one of the finest pieces of writing software I've seen. Congrats and looking forward to what else becomes of "The Scriv'"

Keith, I was away from home for a couple of weeks, and I'm delighted to find Scrivener 1.0 already released. I just registered, and I wanted to congratulate you for you patience and the effort invested in this tool that, at least for me, is redefining the way I write with a computer. It's been thrilling to be see the evolution of this app.

I hope that you'll get a lot of registrations, so you can put your very own Scrivener to use and write.

I use Scrivener since december, and I find it very useful and very well done. The interface too is so nice. But I still didn't buy it because I find it a bit too expensive. I think that 19.99 would have been enough. Expecially when compared with free software as Jourlen, not so well done but... free.

I don't want to rekindle the fray about Scrivener's pricing that has already been debated in these forums (sorry, too lazy to find and link...)

But I would note that Journler is not free. It's donationware for personal use. The developer has been very generous in not disabling the app in any way, but if you value the program you should consider donating.

I just paid for my version and think that it's an astounding bargain. Lunch for two in my town is 40 bucks. A new sweater is 120. A trip to the dentist, Oy. 35 dollars buys a year of Time magazine, 15 days of the New York Times, and a third of a ticket to Broadway.

The price is more than fair, considering the time Keith has spent on Scrivener. He's right to charge a fee, since donations come only from folks with a conscience, and they are always in short supply.
