I used to use yWriter on my computer, but lack of availability on mobile made me abandon it in favor of Scrivener, now let me tell you... Not only is the desktop version fully functional for free, the mobile app is well worth the $5. I regret ever spending $60 total on Scrivener. I did knock one star because it's not very it intuitive. I'm having to do a fair amount of trial and error to figure out what does what, adding a guide would be very appreciated.

The lament of any PC user that has an iPhone is the shear amount of headache associated with finding software that syncs up with both without copious amounts of manual file uploading and download. I love the pc ywriter software and now that there is the app for my phone linked to my Dropbox I am over the moon. As with any app in its early stages not all the kinks are worked out but I have no doubt it will continue to improve and I completely think it will be a well invested couple of dollars. It made nanowrimo so much easier this year and that in itself deserves a good review.

I love how I can just get on and start writing. It is also great for keeping all the information in one place and everything I need is organized. The only thing is the menu is a little confusing I think it would be better the menu was in list form instead of icons, and make it collapsible so we can have more screen real estate while we are writing

I’ve used yWriter5 for the PC to write a novel and a short story collection. Amazing tool. Simple, fast and powerful enough without superfluous gadgets. The iOS version is a tad different due to the small screen, but the organization of scenes is great. Can’t wait to transfer a project back and forth. Then iOS will be for quick ideas and the PC for elaborate typing.

Either Dropbox support needs to be refined or something has to be done about writing backups as in the desktop version or at least not overwriting an existing file when saving rather than deleting it and creating a new one every single time. Five times I've lost all of my progress because of "failed to save to dropbox" errors, and the methods of mitigating this provided by the developer haven't worked. At this rate using the app in tandem with the desktop version is less efficient than copying notes from iCloud
