This isn’t entirely true. The Windows version includes some features of the current Mac version—including collections, which is a potentially powerful feature. Scrivener for Windows immediately becomes one of the best options for writing and managing writing projects for PCs and at $36 is a bargain.

Storyist is a nice application, but it is much more locked in to novel and fiction writing. The beauty of Scrivener is that you can easily adapt it to almost any type of writing, including business writing. This is true of the Windows version as well as the Mac version.
