There's quite a few screen shots on the developer's site:

Apple already took my Euro 4,99 (ca. 7,50 Dollars) but hasn't delivered the app yet...
Not your, the developer's, fault, I know. Just wanted to let you know.

Good news: Auteureist is finally downloadable at the AppStore.

Bad news: it doesn't work on the iPod touch.

Same here. Won't upload to my iPod Touch.
"Not compatible" says iTunes. This is too bad.

I followed a hint from another Auteureist user:

Download Auteureist directly to your iPod touch.

On your iPod touch go to App Store, search for Auteureist and install it. Worked for me.

Thank you for the hint. It did work -- but only once.
Auteureist crashed and I haven't been able to open it since.
Seems like the developer still has quite a bit of work to do.
Can't recommend buying the app at this point.

Unfortunately it doesn't work here no more either. Yesterday I did not have time to play with the application, therefore I did not open it a second time.

Indeed, there is still a lot of work to do for the developer, after all these problems to make the app downloadable, working and better. I confess I had a strange feeling when he wrote all the things he is about to change immediately after publishing his (not downloadable) version 1.0. Maybe he published too early, because he wanted to have the app ready for all the NaNo writers.

Waiting for 1.1. ...

Update: I had a look at his blog: again a user helped the developer to find out a workaround: delete, reinstall and select a password for the app. Apparently this should work, before crashing again... I did not try. I’m tired with this for the moment.

What a pleasure to use Scrivener and WriteRoom for iPhone/iPod touch!

Keeps crashing. Also the UI is cumbersome and, to my taste, very unelegant. If you ask 5 Euro for an app it should it least be stable.

I will stick with WriteRoom and DocumentsToGo.

It works very well for me. Takes a while to get used to the interface, but the app shows promise.

I'm a bit annoyed with the bright button that won't disappear in the full screen mode, and with two rows of the same buttons in browser view, but other than that, I find the app highly usable.
