I have been watching this forum since Scrivener for the Mac 1.0. More recently, because I own an iPad, I have been following the progress of SIOS. I took the plunge, made the purchase, and experimented with syncing, using both Drop Box and iTunes. I am no expert in software development nor do I make any claims to understand the intricacies of sync technology. But it seems to me that this is the elephant in the room.
There are certain people who will never be satisfied with the product and don’t really want to understand the developers problems. They only know that they plunked their few kopeks down and want what they paid for even though some of their expectations may be unrealistic. (Bernie Sanders supporters.)
Then there are those supporters of the software who dogmatically defend its virtues with their last breath and have a take-it-or-leave-it approach. These folks tend to be super sensitive and defensive whenever someone “blasphemes” against their deity. (These folks are Trumpites.)
I am just someone who is trying to get some writing done. If a tool, such as Scrivener, doesn’t meet my needs then I move on to something that does. It doesn’t make Scrivener defective. It just makes it unsuitable for my purposes. When I ask support for a solution to my problem and I am told, basically, that “these are your choices, take it or leave it,” then the choice becomes clear.
Guess I'm just a Bernie Sanders fan. Perhaps a lesson in humility is in order here: There was a time when Apple was the King Kong of the mobile phone world.
