Price and features are not always correlated. AskSam Pro costs $395, much more than most of the programs we discuss here, yet it is one of the least-well supported—and they can’t even keep their servers running. It is also poorly developed. While Scrivener costs $45, and is one of the most feature-rich applications I’ve ever seen. It is also continually and smartly developed.

Which is not to say that you should avoid higher-priced applications. I love Tinderbox and TheBrain (sounds like a cartoon show), both of which cost more than the average app, and feel I’ve more than gotten my money’s worth.
