newby question about ipad

I’m looking forward to getting writing with scrivener!

I downloaded what I thought was the app for ipad and it got loaded onto my Mac, now I’m wondering do I need buy it again?

how do I put the app on ipad… :blush:

feels like such a dumb question :laughing: I would appreciate your advice TIA

Hi kezzy,

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Connect your iPad to your Mac.
  2. Then, in iTunes, click on the “Apps” item, underneath the “Library” heading.
  3. Find Scrivener, then click and drag it to your iPad, which can be found under the “Devices” heading.
  4. Wait for it to finish syncing, and eject the iPad.

Please note that this procedure works for Music, Photos, Films, TV Shows etc. too. Just change out “Apps” for “Music” or “Films” or whatever.

You don’t need to re-purchase the app, an app, once purchased is always available for free download.

Hope this helps,


Actually, we don’t have an iPad app yet, so that won’t work. :slight_smile: Presumably, you bought the Mac version. Our iOS version is currently in development, and we’re hoping to have it ready for the end of the year, or early 2013 at the latest.

All the best,

:laughing: phew I thought I was losing it…


thanks twisted… yes this is what had got me stuck… no app to drag anywhere… :mrgreen: thanks for your response!
