Scrivener 3 or 1.9.7?

I wanna buy scrivener but what is the best option for me?

  • buy soon, get the 1.9.7 and pay the upgrade later for 3.0 (40$ + 20$ I guess)
  • wait and buy 3.0 (40$ I guess too)

I don’t know if you have already choose a price for 3.0 (same than now or not) but often, when a release it’s announce people stop buying and wait the next version. To counter that, there is a period of time where you can buy the software (older version) and get the upgrade for free. Imagine you buy the 1.9.7, 1 week before the upgrade, I guess the customer will be very upset.

People who buy Scrivener 1.9.7 within 3 months of the release of Scrivener 3 will get a free upgrade.

Our free trial allows 30 days of actual use.

The release of Scrivener 3 for Windows is not expected before 2018, though we do expect to offer a public beta once Mac Scrivener 3 is released.

I can’t tell you which choice is better for you. I will point out, though, that you can’t benefit from using Scrivener until you actually start using it. What is the time you save worth?
