It's Wednesday 20 July, woohoo!

No Scrivener app. Sigh. Way to make a day start badly. Look out world your in trouble!

The 'advantage' of being ahead of the rest of the world timezone wise only seems to count for New Year's Eve. Damn it.

I'll check tomorrow. On Thursday 21 July .... :cry:

(Seriously I knew you were fibbing and it wouldn't be out on the 20th for us but you can't blame a girl for dreaming. So, can't wait! Lol)

Our antipodean friends complain *every* time we say a date. :) The trouble is, we have to give a date, and your day is over before it begins in the US - it's not our fault you are ahead! We straddle the two time zones here in the UK, and release in UK time. I sent out several notifications today that it would be released in the morning *UK time* - in newsletters, on the blog, on Facebook, on Twitter - so I did *try* to temper expectations!

But it will be there, tomorrow morning - *20th July*. :)

And little inevitable tweaks aside, the new web page design and site update is done and ready to roll over once the time is right!

Have another look this afternoon.

It's the first time I've seen all the listings for Scrivo. How many different versions can they stuff into the app store?

Regardless of whether the apps are any good, I have to say it looks like a shameless attempt to ride Scrivener's coat tails.

At $19.99 the genuine article is a steal!



Damned timezones! This burnt me too. I was expecting 20th of July the world over (like the hardware releases). App Store times must be set to one of the US timezones. I hope it's not Pacific time otherwise, I won't get it until tomorrow :(

Morning UK time could be any time from now until 10 hours from now. We want the exact minute, so we can sit with our iOS devices and get it immediately as its released. :wink:

You all complaining about time zones, that's cute. I'm the one that has to stay up until 03:00 to be around for the launch! :mrgreen: Lots of latte.

That is a possibility, it could be the beginning of a possibility, or an end of one, or somewhere in the middle!

It's actually going to be a rather dull affair: I'll get up, make the kids toast, make myself a smoothie, press the release button, then go to the gym. :) However, we are planning on a champagne lunch with our laptops.


It's just a button? :shock:

Getting you a nice cup of virtual latte...special selection. (Scrivener selection, Costa Rican)

I actually feel your pain...been there done that as working media...using Wordpress from fire lines :D

Can't wait to transfer a long project been working on to scrivener. Can I do entries directly from scriv to Wordpress? Thst could be nice, speaking of those wild fires

Oh and on that note, started the process, including getting those footnotes to behave in Scrivener. I had to literally remember how to do that in Scriv. Working on a non fiction piece on the Democratic Party realignment. So yes, that thing has a boatload of footnotes. Now if Kindle was nice enough to open in the two screen in the IPAD... would make taking notes easier. Ah small gripes, It does on the Mac though.

But moving from one application to another, so now I can work on the phone and the Ipad pro... which I did upgrade partly in preparation for this release, partly it was starting to fail after quite a bit of abuse.

:mrgreen:

Did I mention I got that IPAD four for that release of IOS Scrivener? Go ahead, laugh... I think it is actually kind of funny. My Macbook pro might need a replacement soon as well. Thinking of going full 17 inch. My eyes are getting old.

:lol:

No, it's a button and go to the gym. So, it's not just a press, it's a full press workout. :wink:

It's here... Sorta!!

I'm hoping it's just the AppStore being slow and not having updated fully...
