There are no plans for anything like this - it's a different business model, and not one we are interested in at the moment, sorry.
Thanks for the suggestion, though!
All the best,

The big benefit for a user is that you can access your work anywhere.
I urge you and your team to read this post (http://news.cnet.com/8301-1001_3-574180 ... -is-smart/) from CNET about Adobe's transition to a subscription based model to see the advantages it has for both the business and its users. I think that this example is very applicable to Scrivener since they are both software products and are used by the creative industry.
Please also note the trouble that Adobe is facing because they have built up the habit of a one time cost with the occasional upgrade. If Literature & Latte waits to long to adopt this model then you will face the same reaction.
I love Scrivener and would love to see it become the #1 writing software in the world but without embracing the new models of Software as a Service (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_as_a_service) I just don't see that happening.
To the everyone else reading this post please add your voice to this conversation.

If you scan down, you'll see that there are a similar number of views in a similar amount of time for a thread about Dragon Naturally Speaking integration, another about plagiarism, another about our icons, and so on... But most importantly, we don't work on the basis of a voting system - we build the software we want to use, taking feedback on board.

I use a Macbook Air at home which has Scrivener installed, a PC laptop running Windows 7 at work, I own and iPad and iPhone. I don't always have my Macbook Air with me when inspiration strikes and having the ability to pop in to my account and jot something down (or a few pages) from wherever and whichever device is most convenient, would make Scrivener an essential tool for me and I think many writers.

Just like the people requesting Scrivener for iPhone or Android phones.... why?
Are you really going to sit at work on your lunch break and write a novel on your iPhone? Seriously, it would be better to use a simple note app to record some ideas and then add them to your project when you get to your computer...
