our goal is not to recreate what Scrivener provides on the Mac or a PC, but rather to give our users on these platforms of viable and seamless experience whenever they step away from the desk. If you want to jot down an idea you have on the subway using your iPhone, you should be able to do that and have it in your project notes when you get back to the office or home. If you cart around a keyboard with your iPad and have a great idea for how a scene ought to unfold, you should be able to haul that out in a coffeehouse and hack away on it, having that scene right in the master outline of your Draft when you get back.
That's exactly what I'm hoping for!
Longtime Scrivener user / forum lurker, first time caller. Thanks for all the hard work you guys are putting into the iOS version of Scrivener. I can't wait to have it on the go, and I think you guys have a good grip on what most users probably want out of a mobile app. Writing and editing are mainly what I'm doing right now, and access to all my drafts and notes would be wonderful. For now, I'm making do with exporting my manuscript as an EPUB, then reading it on my commute and highlighting / making notes for editing on the go. (I'm far enough along in my project that I can do that now-- outlining on the go involved a notebook, the paper kind, quelle horreur!)
But I always come back to Scrivener desktop, because no matter what else I try (and I've used Storyist, Textilus, and dozen or so other iPad apps in junction with Scriv), nothing compares to the original. I can't even think straight in the other apps.
So... yep! Just keep doing what you guys are doing. Love your work, and I'm so obsessed with this software that I read the forums pretty much every week. Thanks for taking the time to talk to us. :)
