Scrivener in App Store Best of 2016

KB / 8 DEC 2016

Many thanks to the lovely Apple folk at all the stores that have included Scrivener for iPad in their "Best of 2016" app picks. It's been a great year (for Scrivener, I mean - clearly it's not been a great year for celebrities), and being picked as one of the Best of 2016 is a spiffing way to end it.

KB / 15 JUL 2016

Scrivener on the Mac and PC have a fully-featured scriptwriting mode, and there are a lot of scriptwriters using it.

Scrivener for iOS: Swipe to Expand Your Outlines

KB / 29 JUN 2016

Scrivener’s binder is essentially an outline: one of the key features of Scrivener is that you can use any structure you want when working out how your writing pieces together.

Scrivener for iOS: It's Time to Talk

KB / 27 JUN 2016

This month is something of an anniversary for us: it was ten years ago that we launched the Literature & Latte website and forums, after a few months of beta-testing on a temporary Proboard forum. I say “we” - back then it was just me. I was beavering away on Scrivener for Mac, wondering if anyone else would find the writing tool I'd always wanted useful. I never for a moment expected so many would.
