    Easy to use, great to organise writing, focuses on the experience



    I live and die by Scrivener since I first started using it years ago. It doesn't lag, doesn't bug, and does exactly what you need it for: provide a space where everything is taken care of and you can just write.

    I use it for everything, from corporate communication to personal projects. It's probably one of my top 10 tools that I've ever used.

    Great templates, places for research notes, footnotes


    The only other alternative is MS Word which sucks

    I've been using Scrivener for two projects: a novel, and a photo book. It is helping me with these projects very well. Unlike Word, I can create a section where I can put research notes. Who knows? Maybe Word does have this function but it is a pain to use Word, and you have to pay the Microsoft tax. One thing I really like is being able to synch across multiple devices. I can edit on my desktop, laptop, and mobile phone. If you're working on a novel or a photo book, this is for you.

"The new and improved Scrivener is available now for MacOS, and is “on its way” for Windows." Damn. I'm pretty sure they skipped V2 for Windows, also.

@rossdcurrie seriously. Also, not having sync using Drive or Dropbox, and an Android client is also woefully archaic in 2017

Scrivener, despite being amazing and my primary application for planning stories, has always looked dated. That's been my only real complaint, and this update seems to fix it. I'm excited to try it out!

interested to see the “simpler” compile settings. scrivener is almost too powerful, it can be overwhelming to a new user.

If we purchase the bundle (macOS & Windows) today, do we get an automatic update to V3 for Windows when it's released?
