Very good so far

I've had this a week or two and so far it has worked well for me.

My needs: to use Scrivener on a laptop but be able to write on my iPad and keep them synced. My mac laptop is old and I don't have access to the iCloud Drive so Dropbox is my friend.

I set up the sync in one attempt on the first day and I have been creating and editing docs, folders etc ever since.

It plays well with my Bluetooth keyboard too and the typing area is good - for my purposes. Word count on-screen is optional, which is a must for me.

Yes there are extras I'd like included in the app and I've told the developers what they are. They had the decency to respond that they'd add it to the list.

Be aware that the sync can take a few seconds, depending how many different things you've changed. And if you are focused on Scrivener files, only create them in the Scrivener folder in the app - if you start with them as local folders, you won't be able to turn them into Scrivener ones later AFIK.

With the official Scrivener app now in beta, Scrivo might wither on the vine, or it might prove to be great for those of us who don't have the latest version of the Mac OS and need something dependable for every day writing away from the desk.

Your mileage may vary.

Why only two stars

I really liked my scrivener until they start charging for updates. I am not keen to spend nearly fifty pounds for an update. How often are they going to charge again.....AND AGAIN ?
I used to have PC, but with their annual upgrades being charged for it pays to use a Mac which may be a little more expensive at first, but a lot cheaper in long run if you don’t have to pay for updates every year or so as on PC.

I paid £9.99 on the understanding that it would open Scrivener files. I tried with iCloud, I tried with Dropbox, all sorts of combinations in different folders and with different names. Every attempt was met with a greyed out Scrivener file. Ergo, I wasted £9.99. I emailed the developers. No reply. On first opening the app it invited me to ‘upgrade’ to a free notetaking app. When I downloaded it, on first opening it asked me to pay £4.99. No way. Disappointed isn’t the word for it. I had really hoped this would be a viable alternative to Scrivener. No way. It only gets one star because I couldn’t send the review without putting a star in.
