“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.

Sdegnata ,


L’app è ben fatta, versatile, comoda ecc... ero indecisa fra questa e un’altra in abbonamento che sta andando molto in questo momento. La discriminante è stata proprio la libertà di non essere vincolata ad un abbonamento. Purtroppo però Scrivener non viene aggiornata da più di un anno e la gestione della sincronizzazione è davvero debole. Confidavo in un aggiornamento in tal senso a breve. Vorrei essere rassicurata sul fatto che l’app e il suo sviluppo siano vivi e vegeti, grazie.

Leggera e completa

Perfetta in associazione con Scrivener per Desktop. La sincronizzazione via Dropbox permette di allineare i documenti sia con Mac che con Windows senza problemi di sorta (ricordando di usare un ambiente per volta e sincronizzando prima di uscire).
Permette di portare avanti il lavoro in qualunque luogo portandosi dietro tutte le ricerche effettuate su desktop e con un iPadPro con tastiera la scrittura risulta anche piuttosto agevole.

L’unica cosa mi piacerebbe è una modalità di ProofReading che mi permettesse di sfogliare il draft del manoscritto e annotarlo a penna (ApplePencil). In tutta onestà non ho mai trovato alcuna applicazione che trovassi comoda per rivedere un testo su schermo (le ho provate quasi tutte). Questo è più un sogno che una richiesta di feature...

Wonderful suite of cross-platform tools

I do all my serious writing on Scrivener (iPad, Mac, and sometimes even iPhone). It’s brilliant. The only thing I wish it had is iCloud support (I’m currently paying for a Dropbox account I use only for synchronising Scrivener projects across all my devices, and that strikes me as quite wasteful). Please add iCloud support and you’ll make this user happy and I promise to revise the interview and provide the coveted five-star review (which you deserve).
