Re: Alternatives to Scrivener for iPad

Ulysses for iPad is a great app. I would give it a look:

Re: iA Writer 3 for Mac

My biggest gripe with iA3 is it forces one into "block paragraphing" during composition. I MUST have the option to first line indent each paragraph.

But I'm a novelist, and block paragraphing seems to be the preferred format for blogging.

Re: Alphasmart-esque...

Okay... typing this post on my brand new Qwerkywriter. I can't begin to explain how much I love the feel of this keyboard. It feels so satisfyiong to hear the clickity-click of the keys. When I really get churning on the prose it's wild and intense. There's a metallic bar that juts out at the writer...

Re: Alphasmart-esque...

Update: Hemingwrite had been rebranded FREEWRITE... not a big fan of the new name... I think it might have had something to do with the Hemingway "estate" or something-or-other. But the Freewrite is owned by Astrohaus, and their new page is: https://astrohaus.com I'm still expecting mine t...

Re: Alphasmart-esque...

No, what it needs is a couple of glowing thermionic valves! Personally, I'd rather have a http://www.qwerkywriter.com/ (QWERKYwriter) keyboard and an iPad with Scrivener on it. But it's a matter of taste ... Prototype is done. They ship this summer: http://www.qwerkywriter.com/blogs/news/29914883-y...

Re: it's coming out

Yes... very exciting. Also, word is it will no longer be called "Ulysses III"... Now it will be Ulysses for Mac and Ulysses for iPad, respectively.

Re: Alphasmart-esque...

Okay... I actually pulled the trigger on the Hemingwrite (income tax check'ed it). It will be ready to ship by late Summer through Fall. When I get my hands on it, I'll revisit to give my thoughts. I think the creators even mentioned something about expanding its exporting to Scrivener. No official ...

Re: Ulysses III

I have to step in here at this point and share my own personal experiences with Ulysses 3. I have been a long time Scrivener user, first off, and I've praised it up and down to everyone I could. I would swear by it, all throughout Grad School. And I give Scrivener much respect as a brilliant piece o...
