I had this problem too and it didn’t resolve itself - the App Store on my iPhone still showed it as £19.99 even though as I had bought it and was using it on my iPad. Same account.

The solution was: go on the App Store on iPhone, click on Today on bottom left hand corner then Purchased Apps. It will show Scrivener with a Cloud next to it. just download it.

Very odd - never had that before.

Kudos to KB from an old programmer. The design of Scrivener is so logical that it took me only 15 mins to get writing on my Mac for nanowrimo and the same for iOS - syncing through Dropbox videos made it very easy. Longest time was in deciding where to put my backups and check I could do the important stuff - particularly restore from backup.
