I was wavering, trying to decide which program to use for my writing.
So, naturally, I wrote about it, hoping readers would help. They did. That post generated quite a few comments. I learned a lot. I also made a decision to at least try Scrivener because I need the organization.
My main problem with it was that you had to download it to your laptop and leave it there. That did not work for me.
Here are some of my replies from that post:
Can you use Scrivener on different devices or only one? iPad, iPhone…?
Awesome! And, please let [Scrivener] come out with an app. Please! *fingers crossed*
No, no, no! Say it ain’t so. This is my main issue with Scrivener. I’m a total tech floozie, too. (Nice accidental alliteration there, if I do say so myself.) I use different devices and need a program that is available on all. I can’t imagine this isn’t an issue for many writers. Why on earth hasn’t Scrivener…created an app?
Exactly. I use two different laptops plus type a lot on my phone (I know, but it’s convenient if not a bit tricky). I’m going to do the trial but this was my main problem with it. *shouts* “Fix this, Scrivener techies!”
A lot of writers had the same issue. They used more than one device (because, really, who doesn’t?) and/or wrote when they had a second between errands, taking care of kids, work, commuting, sleeping, eating…
Hang on to your hats.
If you haven’t heard, I’m delighted freaking out that Scrivener now offers an Apple app for iPads, iPhones, and any other iThing you want to use it for.
They advertise that you can “Write Anywhere”.
Thank you, Scrivener, we already do.
But now lots of us writers will buy your program to “write anywhere” with. How do you like them Apples?
Those of you who use Scrivener, are you going to get the app? Those of you who didn’t (specifically because you used different devices) are you rethinking using Scrivener?
