Scrivener App Description

*** Featured in App Store Best of 2016 *** “The biggest software advance for writers since the word processor.” —Michael Marshall Smith, bestselling author Typewriter. Ring-binder. Scrapbook. Scrivener combines all the writing tools you need to craft your first draft, from nascent notion to final full stop. Tailor-made for creating long manuscripts, Scrivener banishes page fright by allowing you to compose your text in any order, in sections as large or small as you like. Got a great idea but don’t know where it fits? Write when inspiration strikes and find its place later. Grow your manuscript organically, idea by idea. Whether you plan or plunge, Scrivener works your way: meticulously outline every last detail first, or hammer out a complete draft and restructure later. Or do a bit of both. All text sections in Scrivener are fully integrated with its outlining tools, so working with an overview of your manuscript is only ever a tap away, and turning Chapter Four into Chapter One is as simple as drag and drop. Need to refer to research? In Scrivener, your background material is always at hand. Write a description based on a photograph. Reference a video or PDF. Check for consistency with an earlier chapter. On the iPad, open two documents side-by-side; on the iPhone, flip between research and writing with just two taps. Once you’re ready to share your work with the world, simply compile everything into a single document for printing, or export to popular formats such as Word, PDF, Final Draft or plain text. You can even share using different formatting, so that you can write in your favorite font and still keep your editor happy. FEATURES Get Started • Interactive tutorial project • Keep each manuscript and supporting materials in a self-contained project • Import Word, RTF, Final Draft and plain text files • Easily split imported text into separate sections Get Writing • Write your manuscript in sections of any size • View all sections as a single text using the “Draft Navigator” (iPad only) • Quickly navigate sections using the “binder” sidebar • Format with fonts and presets • Comments, footnotes, links and highlights • Simple bullets and lists • Insert images • Pinch-zoom to resize text • Full-screen mode (iPad only) • Typewriter scrolling mode keeps typed text center-screen (iPad only) • Write a screenplay using scriptwriting mode • Live word and character counts • Set word and character count targets • Find and replace • Customizable keyboard row provides quick-access buttons for formatting, navigation and punctuation • Comprehensive keyboard shortcuts for external keyboard users • Dark mode Find Your Structure • Write in any order and reorganize later • Write a synopsis for any text section and see it in the outline • Expand, collapse and drill down into sections of your project • Rearrange sections as index cards on the corkboard (iPad only) • Project-wide search • Track ideas using labels and status • Apply custom icons to your sections Refer to Research • Import research material such as image, PDF and media flies • View research files or other sections right alongside your writing (iPad only) • Every section has its own notes area for jotting down ideas • Supports multi-tasking split screen mode (supported devices only) Share Your Work • Compile to a single document for sharing or printing • Use different formatting in your exported or printed document • Export to Word, RTF, Final Draft, PDF or plain text • Convert rich text to Markdown for sharing with Markdown apps • Create and email zipped backups of your projects Work Anywhere • Use Dropbox to sync between devices and with the macOS and Windows versions of Scrivener* • Copy projects between devices via iTunes * Requires a Dropbox account (not compatible with iCloud).

  • Scrivener Does It All

    By Astrophysics Junkie
    Scrivener is often billed as a drafting tool, but that’s not at all accurate. Scrivener does it all. You can use it to lay out a story or academic piece scene by scene, thought by thought, and go into each item and build on them working in any order. Scrivener makes it easy, and it doesn’t stop there. You can use it to polish too and come to a final draft. If you are passionate about writing then you must own this app. It’s undervalued, not overpriced.
  • Awesome software!

    I enjoy the ease of using the app. It simplifies the process of collecting thoughts into a usable outline. I also enjoy the ability to transfer the project to multiple devices.
  • Great app!

    Great app that lets me stay super organized while writing. I'm still getting used to it but it has a lot to offer. I've never used the desktop version, so now I'm curious!
  • I am drawing on it completely!

    I just wish if there were a feature of adding a recording voice inside each page, just like PDF Expert. Other than that, I do not have much to complain about.
  • Beautiful writing app, no security.

    So far Scrivener is one of the more useful and functional writing apps I’ve used. I could see giving it a 5 star review, but it doesn’t provide even the least degree of app security. Surprising to me when you consider the importance and sensitive nature of documents you work on in such an app. Use case: ever hand your iPad or Mac off to a child or grandchild for the afternoon? At the very least, Scrivener should offer a passcode function at the app level. It could be even stronger with document-level security. Again, this would be a 5 star app with added security.
  • Best thing ever. I’m actually writing a lot more now! Thank you!

  • Perfect Writing App, no syncing issues

    I love Scrivener. Simple as that. The amount of customization that can be done while writing is excellent but the interface is still clean and intuitive. I’ve had no issues syncing with Dropbox and using Scrivener on my PC, Mac, and iPad. Well worth the money.
  • I love this app

    I love that I can write on my iPad, MacBook and phone, and sync them all up. It's a great way to organize lots of small pieces of related writing.
  • iOS version alters image and formatting data, cannot use

    By dh1021x
    It’s too risky to open a project on the iOS version because it deletes images and alters formatting when you switch back to OSX. It is not worth $20. It should be given out for free with OSX, but even if it were it would be unusable because of the damage it does to your existing documents. I can’t risk opening my documents in the app anymore.
  • It’s missing one thing.

    This app has been a godsend for my work, but there is one part that is infuriating and needs to be addressed, either as a default or setting. At the bottom of the text you are working on, it shows the number of words and characters; can we get either an option or something to show the number of pages? That would be VERY helpful for me.
