Daily Deal: Scrivener For Windows Ending Soon

from the good-deals-on-cool-stuff dept

Unleash your inner novelist and let Scrivener help manage your writing project. Available for $20, the Scrivener household license allows you to access your work on multiple devices. Scrivener replaces bits of paper, index cards and sticky notes by allowing you to storyboard projects, to edit and work on different sections, either alone or in concert, and to post notes and access research. There's a script formatting function to help you write the next classic movie hit, a name generator, and the ability to freely edit and restore to older versions so you won't lose anything as you dive deep into the creative process. This deal disappears again soon, so take advantage of it now!

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    I read the title as Scrivener discontinuing Windows support. Might want to change that.

    They might as well do that... I took advantage of one of those offers (not on this site), and the Windows version of Scrivener is deeply disappointing. I say the Windows version, because it's originally a Mac software, and one of the support team told me, after my complaint, that they did not have the means to develop properly the Windows port.

    I cannot say about the Mac version, so I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. But some things are simply not working the way they should in the Windows version. The advertised concept is very interesting (although lacking in some important ways), but some functions are so poorly implemented that they might as well not exist.

    Also, no refund possible if you buy through one of those discounted offers. So, download the free trial version first, experiment for 30 days, and then look for a discounted offer if you're satisfied.
