It's going to be six months of writing (at about 500+ words a day) to sync when I return to civilization. This is an absolute must.

As good as OS X is, Apple hasn't created a device running it that gives me the ability to work while standing in a crowded train to/from work or on a desk with a keyboard and everything in between. I don't want another mac laptop - been there, done that; paying north of $2000AUD for a disposable, single-port rMacbook with a glued enclosure and soldered internals as a secondary device has zero appeal when I got my iPad for less than a quarter of that price. Given that I used to use a Palm pilot with a folding keyboard; the 8inch mini with its retina display is a luxury portable typewriter!
Accordingly, mobile-first has become more important to me. If Scrivener for iOS can preserve my project's structure between transfers, let me do light restructing and draft in full screen mode then I will be happy indeed. But I'm not going to sabre-rattle and threaten to take my business elsewhere. I've been a happy customer since 2007 and since then every release you've shipped for OS X has been outstanding.

I've now given up on this app and developer in frustration. The app has been 'reinvented' a couple of times and always fallen short of expectations for me. It never quite lives up to its billing.
Maybe they'll get things right with Scrivo? I'm not holding my breath.
Let me add my voice to this chorus. Now that it has become clear that the folks doing Scrivo and the folks doing Textilus are the same folks despite different company names , I have zero confidence in their ability to get this right. This is why I am using plain text tools on my iPad until iScrivener arrives.
I always had bad luck with Textilus too. PlainText is the one I favored for syncs.

I can grab some time with the iPad and take it with me to write silly stories. Alas, Scrivener, you've kept me waiting too long and I've bought Ulysses. It works brilliantly. It's pretty much what I was waiting for. I still care about Scrivener enough to write on this forum and wish I had it on my iPad but there it is. We've grown apart.
