Scrivner IOS

Hi

I have just paid £15 for the IOS app and I am not happy.

I have never figured out how to save files on my mac or my ipad properly or how either of them works. I have never tried to use Dropbox before or any other cloud system and now I have downlaoded it I can't be bothered to figure out how it works either.

I didn't bother to read the instructions or follow the tutorial because I am male and shouldn't need to do so.

However I will complain about wasting my money on this useless app and will leave a 1 star review on MAS.

Best....

Don't worry about it , Foxy, mate. When Scriv encounters BOLLOX OVERLOAD, it triggers an automatic response:
FFSRTFM!!
Hope this helps :wink:

Oh ugh, really? (The reviews, not your satire.) Doesn't surprise me, though. It's like a recipe blog, where half the comments on a cake recipe are from people who used black beans instead of flour, applesauce instead of eggs, and agave nectar instead of sugar and wonder why they didn't get a chiffon cake.

The sport here is deeper than I expected, since every review on the App Store so far is an enthusiastic five star review. Or maybe I have somehow stumbled into the App Store of the afterlife where all the reviews are blisteringly positive.

I was really looking forward to some good bollox.

KB must be the master turtle to have a shell that thick (that's a reference from LONG LONG AGO IN A FORUM FAR FAR AWAY that is almost an inside joke for us old timers).

The latest rounds of forum users (some time after windows was added) have really turned me off from EVER running a product company that takes and feedback from customers. Sure that is bad for the "open source minded" folks, but for centuries feedback to companies was limited to focus groups. And no one cared.

Which is me saying "BAH HUMBUG!" to ever doing another startup.

Is there anything you don't say "BAH HUMBUG" to (with the exception of Mrs Jaysen*)?

*And I suspect that's only because of her well known** expertise in skillet weaponry
**She must be so pleased you've distributed knowledge of her talents so broadly :twisted:

She prefers wide distribution of her ... talent. "Strike the fear of ... Never mind" she says.

And I tend to not humbug sunsets, good rum and scotch, and fresh fish that I've caught and cooked. Other than that... eh.

I didn't realise this was a thing, so I googled it and, sure enough, you can apparently switch out 1/4 cup of apple sauce for each egg in a recipe.

Although I tried it and the hollandaise was f*#king disgusting.

Okay, what is this discussion supposed to be about as the originator stated that he was being satirical (comical, maybe)? Nothing? Wonderful. I just wasted a part of my life reading all this.
