Scrivener is a demonstration of the economic principle that you can sometimes sell disproportionately more if you charge somewhat less. (It was even more dramatic ten years ago when Scrivener launched and when writing apps could cost as much as $100. I remember thinking then that if I was still teaching economics as I once did, I’d have tried to use Scrivener as a case study - of “the price elasticities of demand”.)
