Has potential

NOTE This will only communicate with Scrivener if you have paid for the version 3 update!!

I write with Scrivener, and part of the reason I purchased this software was because you can export your project directly into Scrivener. I created an outline with Story Planner and enjoyed a lot of the features. However, when I went to export, it gave me options for Scrivener 2 (what I currently run) and Scrivener 3 (a paid update of that software, which I do not have). I created a Scrivener 2 export, which then wouldn't work in my version of Scrivener. I understand this issue is related to Scrivener's functionality as well. Instead I tried to export my outline as an RTF and just import that into Scrivener, but the export only shows previews of text, so it was basically useless- my details about what I wanted to happen in a scene cut off after the first two lines!! Instead I had to dual screen and then copy/ paste from one program to another, which was time consuming and not was I was expecting when I paid for this program.

Bottom line- I enjoyed creating an outline using this software, but it stopped being easy to use as soon as I wanted to actually use that outline to write in another program. There is basically NO information about actually exporting your project on their site (a blurb paragraph). Their website doesn't have as much info as I'd like, and as an annoying large number of glaring typos, considering it's a software for writers.

Simple and Easy, but Expensive

I started using this app on my iPad when I realized how useful it would be to have on my laptop, where I do most of my actual writing. I love the simplicity and visual aesthetic of the app. I tried hundreds of writer and story planner apps and websites, but I always come back to this one. The only catch: it’s expensive for the computer, and there’s a specific lack of customizability. I would love the ability to add my own categories and subcategories to fill out. But at the same time (being the detailist I am) I feel like the bare-minimum approach that this app has can be helpful for perfectionists like me. Definitely reccommend!

A Must Have in Your Writing Tool Box

I have lost count of all the money I have spent on programs that promise to make my life easier as a writer. I have FINALLY found such a program. Story Planner for Writers is streamlined, simple, but most of all, houses every outlining tool I need. The export function is a nice feature. I also bought the mobile version so I can update my ideas on the go. It syncs seamlessly with my laptop program. I have not used it along with Scrivener yet but I will on my next project. Wonderful program.
