Just a quick PSA for iOS Scrivener users, especially if you haven’t upgraded: Dropbox sync seems broken for many users since iOS 13 (it is for me). There’s a 21-page long forum thread on the support forum:
It looks like it could be an Apple issue with how iOS 13 is managing memory, but what is really worrying to me is the rather off-hand attitude of support regarding that issue. I doubt it’s going to be fixed any time soon, or ever, so: if using Scrivener on iOS is mission critical to you, do not upgrade to iOS 13, hoping it’s not too late already…
As for me, my trust in the app has been severely shaken and since these apps are mission-critical for me, I’ll be transitioning fully to Ulysses next year. Now that subscription pricing does not seem so bad – the app has continuously been receiving updates and bug fixes and they would never have left such a problem unchecked for almost three months now.
I’d be happily paying a subscription to Scrivener if that meant the same reactivity from the team.
