Tired of using Word to handle your writing tasks? If so, a world of convenience awaits in Scrivener 2, a powerful word processor and project management app.

We agree with Jason Snell, Editorial Director of Macworld, who puts it: “Scrivener is one of the best finds of the last ten years.” Here’s your chance to streamline your writing process and free yourself from the frustrations of Word, at a full 50 per cent discount from Pocket-lint Deals.

Like its predecessor, Scrivener 2 offers an extensive suite of writing aids without ever forcing users to confirm to any set process. Whether you want to jump in and start typing, or prefer to compile meticulous research and outline the whole narrative, Scrivener’s happy to hand you the tools and get out of your way.

Unlike a regular word processor, Scrivener is set up for long-form writing with distraction-free fullscreen mode for composing, as well as a “Snapshots” feature which allows you to restore and rewrite previous versions of your work. Users can also load documents into floating windows above the text for quick reference, and there’s a searchable database for storing notes. Scriptwriting mode provides custom formatting, along with the option to export to other apps, such as Final Draft.

Scrivener 2 also allows writers to track creative plots with the Storyboard feature, while storytellers can map out their narratives with the built-in outliner mode which allows for a macro, structural look at a piece in progress. You can even synchronize the text of your project with mobile apps.

If you’re looking for a better alternative to Word, it’s time to join countless writers, professionals and students with Scrivener 2, now £15.81 ($22.50) from Pocket-lint Deals.
