    Great to read this Tiffany. Smart.

    You could get around the “no formatting” issue by writing in Markdown in the text editor in iOS. Scrivener handles Markdown very easily and you can compile to whatever formt you’d like from scrivener n

    Yes, Michael Holley has posted some great information.
    For Windows users, Scrivener does not have the sync feature -yet – (but i’m sure it’s coming!)…so we have to do some jumping through hoops, with exporting to Dropbox, importing to Dropbox, and then deleting duplicate info.
    For your iPad app, you might want to take a look at Textilus.. I find it as easy to use as Plaintext, it plays well with Dropbox and Scrivener, and it has some nice formatting features.

    Im saving breath for the new Scrivener developer getting the iOS version cranked out, but I do find this information quite helpful. KUDOS!!!

    I use the Notes app on my iPhone to add words to my novel. I just key in about 200-300 words, then email them to myself. The email echoes back to my phone, so I just delete that. But it also shows up on my desktop, where I can just cut and paste it into a Word document. My desktop isn’t a Mac, BTW.

    Great idea, Simon! I wasn’t familiar with that so I looked it up and looks like that could be a good solution.

    Thanks Laurie! I work on my iPhone (don’t have an iPad yet :( ), which doesn’t have Textilus, but from the screenshots of the iPad app, it looks awesome (and free)! I will definitely check that out if (when…?) I get an iPad.

    Thanks Steve! And can I just say, ME TOO! Surely it’s got to be coming soon.

    Thanks Betty! I love the legal pad look of the Notes app, if it synced with Scrivener I would use it as well. It’s great that you can use it to work across Mac and Windows platforms!
