Waiting with baited breath for Scrivener 2.0

How often do you lust for software? Apple’s latest piece of finely crafted industrial design, sure. A 1975 corvette, natch. But software?

If you’ve used Literature & Latte’s Scrivener 1.0, then yes, you too would be lusting for the latest version of the app that is officially going on sale next week. The good news is that for those that just can’t wait, there is a preview version available that you can test drive today.

I’ve written before about Scrivener and how much I enjoy working with it. All the great features are still there, like a completely user driven hierarchy of written content and a file format that acts as a repository for everything in your writing project, but V2 fixes the few quibbles I had with the app, like the ability to look at two documents at the same time and more flexibility in arranging your content in non-linear views.

I used to review software for a living. I could spend another thousand words extolling the virtues of this app, but all you really need to know is that if you are a writer, of any kind, you owe it to yourself to at least try this app. It has a free trial, so all you’re spending is a little time.

I will leave you with this – every single person I’ve ever show Scrivener to has bought it. One writer friend even bought a mac laptop just so she could use it.
