Fanatastic program, bugs with the new update
I actually really love this program, and was so excited/hopeful when I found it. Then when I purchased the full version, I didn’t regret it at all, because it was the solution I was looking for to help my organize and grow as a professional writer. It’s all the things I need, while still being streamlined. The way information is integrated across contacts/publishers and places to submit, the seperated section for contests, and the ablitiy to store everything in a drop down field for repeated tries at a literary magazine… I found it more and more helpful the longer I’m at this whole writing business. Which it why I’m so dissapoointed the new update is so buggy.
For one, it wiped out all my old data. =( And it was tedious to renter all the magazines' and contests’ information (especially since now some are defunct). But that’s a one time thing, and I managed to recreate most of it.
Of greater concern is the habittual bugs. I notice that when I update a work with the response back date, it resets the “days out” column to zero. Only the submissions without responses have the days out counted. Not the biggest deal, but annoying. I like knowing that kind of information, and if it’s offered to you, it should work.
Another thing, when I launch the program, the display is always pixellated for the first five minutes or so, before the program “warms up” enough and the image resolves itself into crsip lines. This one does impede function, because I am squinting to read and fill in the fields.
Lastly, another big problem is that the scroll up and down is glitchy, and there is a delay moving from different submissions. Not the greatest when I am trying to double cheack if I’m imputted every poem into the tracker, or trying to remember if a piece has been submitted somewhere else…
All in all, I loved loved loved the first iteration of this program, and I would have been a lifelong user, just as fanatic as those Scriviner fans out there. But unless the program gets upgraded, I do have to wonder why I fight the program when I’ve made Excel spreadsheets that work better.
Please, please, please fix this.
Developer Response ,
All your complaints have been addressed in the latest version (version 5.5). In particular, the submissions module has been completely rewritten so that it is faster and there is no lag when scrolling. The "days out" column now accurately reflects the days a submission is out when the response date is entered. The display is not pixalated on start up. In addition we have provided date pickers for date entry. A complete list of enhancements are in the "Whats new in Version 4" section of the App Store listing. Please review the enhancements and do leave a revised review of your findings on the App store comments section. Thank you very much for your valued feedback and for being a loyal user.
Excellent contact management app for writers
I recently moved my writing efforts from Windows to Mac, and had been looking for a Mac-friendly contact management app to track submissions. This is by far the best solution I've found, and would recommend it to anyone with similar requirements. I've been an Outlook, Goldmine, and Act! user in the past. Those are all heavy-duty apps, but not specifically designed for writing. I'd even considered developing my own application in FileMaker, but that would take a lot of time, and constant tweaking. However, with this app I was able to hit the ground running, and haven't looked back so far.
This app is wonderful. I have tried downloaded trials from multiple others, and tried out multiple web-based submission trackers, and for me there is no comparison. Published! is easy to use, intuitive, flexible - data entry is seamless, and user support is readily available and personal. It is clean and simple in appearance, with a lot of power and flexibility that becomes more and more apparent as I work with it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
