scrivenerThere are many word processor options out there. You have the more traditional apps like Microsoft Word, and you also have free options like Google Docs. However there are also apps like Scrivener which is aimed more at writers who want to be able to better control their writing and how it is organized.

Now the app has been a popular choice for Mac users over the past few years, and recently it has been made compatible with Windows 10 as well, but oddly enough Scrivener hasn’t had an iOS app. The app has been in development for a while, but a recent blog post (via MacRumors) by the app’s designer and developer Keith Blount has revealed that an iOS version could be released soon.

According to Blount, there were issues part of the initial development which led him to taking over and rebuilding the app from scratch. “I had originally planned not to develop it myself so that I didn’t have to divide my time between the Mac and iOS versions, but in the event, coding our iOS version turned out to be a lot of fun, especially with the introduction of the iPad Pro. Adapting Scrivener for iOS felt like going back to the beginning and remembering why I built Scrivener in the first place.”

He also mentions that the iOS app is now in internal alpha testing and is apparently going well, and he believes that the move to beta should not be too far behind. No word on when exactly the app will be released, but like we said, development appears to be progressing well so hopefully we will be able to look forward to its release in the coming weeks or months. In the meantime Mac and Windows 10 users can check out the desktop version of the app here.
