    Though I'm very cynical at this point, Scrivener for iOS seems to be back on track after L&L found their new developer.

    Blog post.

    Maybe it will happen this year! I wonder if we'll see an iPhone version...

    I just signed up for the beta myself. I am really looking forward to see how Scrivener works on the iPad

    The "new" developer is the main developer, who took over the reigns after several failed outsiders. :) Unfortunately it also means that the large overhaul of the Mac application (ie. Scrivener 3.0) is likely not coming this year.

    Open beta is now closed for new applicants.

    Scrivener for iOS in a nutshell.

    Now coming in 2011! Never happened, because.............(fill in lame excuse here).
    Now coming in 2012! Never happened, because.............(fill in lame excuse here).
    Now coming in 2013! Never happened, because.............(fill in lame excuse here).
    Now coming in 2014! Never happened, because.............(fill in lame excuse here).
    Now coming in 2015! Never happened, because.............(fill in lame excuse here).
    Now coming in 2016!

    I seriously hope they it actually DOES come out, but at this stage it's already been "Coming later this year," for the last 5 years.

    Wow, okay. I am glad that people like this aren't making iOS Scrivener. After the first or second failure it would have been good game.

    If you follow this situation closely, you know it's not that simple. But the success of Scrivener iOS is not determined by one person.

    Me either. I signed up also. My iPad Pro 12.9 and I want to do some serious writing. I tried using Ulysses and it works okay, but it isn't Scrivener. ;)

    We'll see. It sounds like the vast majority of the code re-write for the Mac was already done, but yes, they only release when sure it will work.

    Looks really great - and strangely looks nicer than Mac Scrivener...

    Indeed. I'm not sure that a fresh coat of paint is enough to bring me back, but it does have a nice, modern look that is far and away better than the current Mac version.
    I'd imagine they will be working to align some of those design choices back to the Mac in a future version.

    I cannot believe this is actually happening. I sold the iPad years ago after giving up hope (and it was an iPad 3 and rubbish).

    Time to book in a trip to the apple store in anticipation...

    Any beta testers out there with knowledge of the utility of the pencil (if any)?

    There isn't any utilization of the pencil. I can't really imagine how it would work, to be honest.
    --- Post Merged, Jul 14, 2016 ---
    I should clarify, the pencil still works the same way as your finger, so it technically works. There just isn't any extra functionality for the apple pencil.

    I tried to find a bug, and I couldn't even find one. It is really, really good. The only issue that I ran into was with the limitations of iOS. I found it easier to have my source material in Evernote, and use a split screen with Scrivener. That really worked well. It never crashed, and the sync worked really well. I am plopping down my 20 bucks day one, and I am not even gonna think about it.

    10 minutes past midnight and still nothing on the App Store. I mean, I'm not in that of a hurry, but since I can't sleep, I decided to try and download it. Nothing yet. I'll keep trying

    They said 8:30 BST over on their Twitter page, so 2:30 AM CDT.
