If eBook export is still “in progress,” that’s a deal-breaker for me. I should look to see if it offers anything beyond what Scivener + Markdown + Dropbox gives.

As it stands now, Novlr is to Scrivener what a pencil is to a typewriter—an that perhaps is its only allure: simplicity. I wish these folks well, but who would want to spend $120 a year for less functionality than you get with Scrivener for twice the cost of the one-time purchase of Scrivener? They will end up dropping the price or failing, I think.

Off line mode, is a good idea, however.

I think they try the basic capitalist business model here:

If you don’t have enough customers you have to raise the prices to pay your bills.

.... oh wait ....

People who can’t install Scrivener (or run any executables), i.e. the Chromebook generation.

More than 50% of US schools now use Chromebooks, and these kids are growing up quickly:

I follow https://www.reddit.com/r/chromeos/ and people are starting to ask for Scrivener-like functionality but they want it online because they don’t want to buy either a Mac or a Windows machine.

But I’m not trying to justify their pricing strategy. Someone will come along and offer something similar for a lot less, and that might bring the price down in the end.
