By David Pierce Gear 07.20.16
Every November for the last 17 years, thousands of people have participated in National Novel Writing Month, which is more commonly and less pronounceably known as NaNoWriMo. In 2015, 431,626 people signed up to try and write 50,000 words in a single month. One guy apparently wrote more than a million.

And today, after years of development and even more years of user requests, Scrivener’s also available for the iPhone and iPad.
