Today 29 January I downoaded Scrivener, and so far it seems to be really good. However, when I try to reach the forum, or other web-based services including the Scrivener homepage the server is down.
Is the company still in action, or will Scrivener be obsolete in the future? Just good to know before purchase.

Many who post here have been upset by the same thing as I have: This "free" software is by no means free. A mandatory donation that is in fact a fee. So this should NOT be listed as anything else but as a commercial program.
As a commercial program it is however cheap, lacking in support and has a few more bugs than one should accept as a buyer of a commercial program. Slow, and crashes a lot.
As a free program - with REAL donations and not fees in disguise - I could easy have given this an average of 3 stars. But since I see this as a commercial program I don't think it is worth to pay for.

Have been using v 3 for a year, but now when I wanted to upgrade to v 4.0.6 I wanted to try the trial versions first.
After installation the program just doesn't do anything. It does not load any database, all submenus are greyed out and you can't even access the preferences.
No support and no guidance in their support forum either. But others seem to have similar problems according to the Forum.
I will NOT upgrade to the full version, since it seems I am to pay for a program that doesn't work.
A qualified piece of crap. Pity since I really liked v 3.
Can't give much more than lowest stars, since it is impossible to get to work. Version 3 however would have received much more.
