A new version of the popular Scrivener application has this week been launched on the MacOS in the form of the latest major update to the application Scrivener 3. If you purchased Scrivener 2 on or after 20th August 2017, you can update to Scrivener 3 for free. Existing customers can upgrade to Scrivener 3 for just $25 and if you are a new user the Scrivener 3 app is available for $45, bringing new features and improvements, simplifying what was already there.
