Scrivener is one of the best productivity and writing apps for iOS, and the new Scrivener iOS app update is adding even more features to help you write. Continue reading to learn about the new Scrivener iOS app update and the new features that have been added to increase your productivity and writing pleasure.
Scrivener iOS Update Adds Dark Mode
The biggest news to come out of the Scrivener iOS update is that Dark Mode is now a feature in the app. This new update for the Scrivener iOS app is really the first big update that the app has received since landing on iOS. The new update brings Scrivener up to version 1.1, and it is available right now in Apple’s App Store. In version 1.1, the most talked about feature being added to the app is Dark Mode. Beyond that, we also see some improvements that will help with speed and performance, and also some stability improvements.
Dark Mode for Scrivener sounds exactly like what you might be thinking. It allows you to be productive and write in environments that have lower-level lighting. If you are someone who writes for a living and works at night, the new Dark Mode feature will definitely help you out quite a bit. This has been a long-requested feature from the users of the Scrivener iOS app.
Even if you do not write at night but live somewhere that has bad lighting, this new app feature will be useful as well. Some people find that the lightning in the place they live is not good for certain types of work, so Dark Mode can help you see what you are doing regardless of the light situation going on around you. If you would like to enable Dark Mode on the Scrivener iOS app, you just need to click on the gear icon and enabled it.
Beyond the new Dark Mode, version 1.1 of Scrivener iOS includes new emoji abilities. You now will be able to use emojis as the icons for your documents. If you want to use the emojis, just press the icon option after clicking on the inspector icon. There is also a custom field in this update that allows you to add various letters and tools into the field, and you can add emojis here as well. As we said, the update also includes bug fixes and performance improvements, which is always a good thing to have in updates. We also see that there is a new API option in the app as well. If you use the Scrivener iOS app, you will notice that the Dropbox API has been updated.
The new Dropbox API in Scrivener is due to the fact that Dropbox will be moving to another API at the end of this month. Scrivener already seems to be under budget and ahead of schedule in this department because the app team already made the sync code different to reflect the upcoming API change with Dropbox. If you are a writer and think that the Scrivener iOS app could help you boost your productivity and increase your business, you can head to Apple’s App Store right now to download the new version. The new version is 1.1 and this app is not free so keep that in mind. In fact, this app costs $19.99 in the App Store, but the cost is well worth it if you enjoy writing, whether it be a hobby or something you are doing as a career.
