“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.

Editors’ Notes

Serious creation calls for serious tools. After all, nobody’s building skyscrapers out of sticks. If you’re writing a long manuscript, your tool is Scrivener. Desktop users already know how seamlessly Scrivener binds your inspiration, outlines, and writing—but you’re not always at your Mac—and thankfully the iOS app packs the same rich complexity. And yes, of course it syncs flawlessly so you’re never tied to just one device.

Amazing app

This is an amazing writing app for iOS - it has so many tools, wonderful organization capabilities, and it syncs flawlessly with Dropbox so I have all my files on all my iOS devices. Fantastic job!

Only one issue right now - sometimes when I go into a folder on my phone, the files within don’t appear, and I have to repeatedly open the folder for them to appear.

Otherwise, the app is amazing — thank you so much and keep up the great work!!

ADD ICLOUD SUPPORT

It is absolutely absurd that I am forced to use Dropbox in order to sync my stories across devices in this day and age. Really?? There is only ONE cloud service I’m able to use?
Clearly, Scrivener has received money from Dropbox to make Dropbox the exclusive cloud carrier. That was a mistake on Scrivener’s part.

The second someone makes an app similar to yours and adds icloud support, I am forgetting about this app.
