Whereas many (all?) of the frameworks for iOS are identical to those in Mac OS X. OS X has many more but the iOS ones provide the same functionality albeit in a gesture-based rather than mouse-al environment.Daniela Wolfe wrote:Also, while the iOS, Windows and OS X version run off a different code base, it has been mentioned that the Windows version runs off the QT framework. QT is compatible with android, so they already have a code base from which to start whereas the iOS version had to be written completely from scratch.

As I say, we plan to build an Android version eventually, but development on it is unlikely to start before next year because of existing commitments to iOS, Mac and Windows, so I doubt it will see the light of day before 2017 at the earliest.
Ideas and workflows can always be copied by others, of course, but fortunately we have a ten-year head start on anyone who wants to copy us. As for Ulysses, that (great) app was around before us and, although there is crossover, we appeal to different writers on the whole, I think. I appreciate your concern, but we are doing very well and don't make decisions based on trying to be first to market (as can clearly be seen with our iOS tardiness ). If being the first to market was the only thing that mattered, no one would ever buy anything new. Instead, we concentrate on making the best software we can with the resources we have available. We have a lot of cool things planned for the desktop version first, and want to concentrate on catching up with the Windows version before we stretch development resources further.
Thanks and all the best,

Ulysses has just released a new version for iOS that mimics the MAC version and people are very happy with it.
Scrivener has 0 iOS versions.
