You have a story to tell, article to publish, class notes to take, whether it’s today’s journal entry, tomorrow’s thesis or a future bestseller novella. Scrivo Pro can help you organize your writing, research, generate ideas, and remove distractions so you can focus on the most important thing: writing.

Using with Scrivener/Dropbox…

So.. I bought this on a whim hoping that I could use it with my existing Scrivener projects which is says it supports. I got it to eventually sync even though it takes about 10x longer than Scrivener does. But the resulting project structure does not reflect anything close to my project within Scrivener (on the iPad). I’ve got a neat and tidy structure for one of my projects but in this app the layout is not close to what I see in Scrivener for whatever reason. Maybe I’ll check back in a few versions or something.. For now it’s not usable for me.

Edit : 2 hours later. I tried this on my iPhone and let the initial sync run for probably a half hour.. it did eventually finish. The structure was initially the same as described above but I synced again and let it finish which probably took closer to 45 seconds and then the structure was fine and worked as I was hoping it would .. it’s got some odd behaviors in the editor that are a little frustrating..

Yes, syncs are slower than scrivener but do seem to work ok. I’ve gone back and forth between the two apps and no issues so far..

Call me happy!

I Wanna Give It 5 Stars But....

Its iCloud folder is not syncing at all with Scrivener 3. But the issue of inability to synchronize from iOS to MacBook is probably an iCloud Drive’s fault since it never worked either for Ulysses or ByWord.

I still can’t give it 5 stars though as much as I wanted or else I’d be lying. It has been experiencing glitches of getting stuck and not responding anything you touched. I had to switch off my iPhone each time it got stuck and it was a regular occurrence. So 4 stars is already me being generous.

Pretty good but mine crashed too much

Used this app for a few months but eventually I switched to another one because it wasn’t 100% reliable. Would sometimes freeze for a really long time and then black screen / crash after a while reloading. It’s great when it works but I can’t abide the crash freeze man
