For Mac–iOS syncing, the developer has said he will need to rebuild Scrivener from scratch, but it appears that is at least a possibility.
With all the current changes going on with operating systems and third-party apps, I imagine there are three main possibilities ahead:
1. The developer takes (well-earned) early retirement in the near future (or sells the company) and pulls the plug completely.
2. The developer keeps things as they are and lets Scrivener’s reach dwindle to an ever-smaller cadre of users.
3. The developer rebuilds Scrivener from the ground up so that it has greater reach for modern users over the next decade.
Life is short. I hope the developer takes his money and runs: spending time with his family and using Scrivener to write the novels he has said that he wants to write. He deserves to reap the rewards of the work he has done before life cheats him of the opportunities that he has forged for himself.
Thanks in part to Scrivener, I never need to work again, although I will carry on doing some writing as I see it as art, not a commercial endeavour.
So I am totally happy with whatever the developer decides to do. I only use Scrivener on Macs, so Dropbox isn’t an issue for me; and if Scrivener disappears, I will move on to another writing app.
