Scrivener for iOS Submitted to App Store for Review

Update: In the forum post mentioned below, the developer has announced that Apple has approved Scrivener for iOS and the release date is Wednesday, July 20. 

I’ve been writing quite a bit about the upcoming release of Scrivener for iOS. Soon, I should be able to write about the actual app, as the developer just submitted it for review to the App Store.

The developer announced this in a forum post. Scroll toward the bottom of the post to see the news. Even if it is quickly approved, the developer announced the app won’t go on sale until the end of next week, as the company needs to get some other loose ends tied up.

Scrivener for iOS Teaser Video

Literature and Latte, the developer behind Scrivener, has announced that the iOS version of the popular writing app will be released next month. In the blog post, the company has also teased a short video. It looks like we’re almost there, at last. Pricing has also been announced.

Scrivener will work on any device running iOS 9.0 or above. You could tap out a whole novel on your iPhone, or spread out on an iPad Pro. It will cost $19.99, and will be coming to an iPad or iPhone near you in late July (App Store review times depending).

Scrivener Beta Expands

Scrivener is a fantastic writing tool. If you’re a lawyer, it’s even great for writing briefs. Scrievener currently lacks an iOS app, but that should change soon. In April, Scrivener for iOS entered closed beta. Now, it sounds like the release is getting even closer.

Scrivener for iOS has been in closed beta with around 75 people for the past month. We’re now looking to expand the beta group, so are throwing open the doors to volunteers. If you’re interested in helping test Scrivener for iOS, read on!

We only have a limited number of beta testing spots available, and right now we’re looking to add between 200 and 250 new people to the pool.

The beta so far has been going great, with beta testers using Scrivener for iOS every day without any real problems.

I can’t wait to see this, but I’m not going to apply for the beta test – they need people to truly contribute to find bugs, etc., and I’d worry I’d just want an early peek at the app.

Cross Your Fingers for the Scrivener for iOS Beta

The iOS version of Scrivener appears to be getting closer to seeing the light of day, as development is moving from alpha to beta testing. If that sounds familiar, it was just over a year ago that the iOS version of Scrivener entered closed beta. Alas, it was not to be, as so many bugs were found that the entire project was scrapped, and started from scratch.

Let’s hope the beta goes better this time. The founder of Scrivener on the Mac took over coding duties himself for this go-around, after using an outside developer for the last attempt.

Scrivener is one of my favorite writing apps on the Mac, especially for writing legal briefs. Scrivener’s ability to handle reference material is unparalleled among writing apps. The absence of an iPad app, though, is becoming increasingly problematic as I do more writing work on the iPad Pro. I’m crossing my fingers that soon we will be easily moving back and forth between Scrivener on the Mac and iOS.

Writing Legal Briefs with Scrivener

Scrivener toolbar

WordPerfect 5.1 is legendary among tech geeks of a certain age, and still has devoted users. I used various incarnations of WordPerfect as my main word processor and brief[1] writing tool until just a few years ago, when I succumbed to the inevitable force of change, and switched to Microsoft Word. Now, though, I’m not even using a traditional word processor as my main brief writing application, because I’ve discovered that Scrivener is a fantastic tool for that purpose.

Scrivener for iOS Enters Closed Beta

If you’ve been waiting for Scrivener to hit the iPad and iPhone, there’s finally light at the end of the tunnel. Literature and Latte, the popular writing app’s developer, has announced that Scrivener for iOS is now feature complete and has entered a closed beta. The initial version of the iOS version will use Dropbox to sync with the Mac and Windows versions. A summer release has been targeted.

I’ve found Scrivener on the Mac to be quite handy for legal writing. I can organize research within the app, and break down my document into sections that I can easily rearrange. The grand plan, of course, is to use the app to write a novel some day.

WriteMonkey: A Distraction-Free Writing Tool That Supports Markdown [Windows]

writemonkey

We recently looked at Markdown, a markup format that lets you easily create HTML-formatted text. What can make Markdown even easier to use is if you use an app that supports it. On the Mac, Markdown apps are plentiful. On Windows, not so much. Fortunately, if you’re on Windows, you do have WriteMonkey. WriteMonkey is a Markdown tool, but describing it as such just scratches the surface.
