I had to get my hands on Scrivener for iOS after waiting so long for the app to join Scrivener for the Mac. For the most part I like this new writers application for iOS. The only thing I'm not so keen on is the choice of synchronisation through Dropbox. I have been using Ulysses because of their being the cross-platform applications – Mac and iOS. That uses iCloud for the synchronisation and for me that worked well.

At the moment I'm getting the impression that I might be using Scrivener for the writing of books. Then I use Ulysses for all of my blogging writing. I'll use Ulysses for all other non-book writing activities. Ulysses does have the advantage of export out to EPUB format directly from the iOS version. I have found you cease to be good as my go to application for writing. Whether that be for longer books or for blogging.

Scrivener does have some more organisational tools and I'm inclined to give it a try for the next book I'm going to write.
Scrivener versus Ulysses There's an arms race between two great writers / authors applications. Now Scrivener has an iOS app it's getting more interesting

My wife is a teacher and I used to be one. She thinks I should keep writing the novels and using my imagination rather than having fanciful ideas about how education will be when Artificial Intelligence has got to the point when it can be used in the way I'm thinking. It might not happen in my lifetime but one day education will be a fully integrated system designed to be run on massive powerful computers.
In the mean time it is a "You know nothing, Jon Snow' for my daft ideas.
Lifelong learning with iPad educational strategies for education. It's never too late for Learning new things to improve your mind and your life.

I've just completed a few more lessons. Going great so far. Really well explained. 
TapCoding iPad Swift Lessons are fantastic to learn how to code on the ipad. Easy steps to get the basics of thinking like a programmer.

Kind of weird Apple never mentioned the iPad apart from the Swift Playground thing.
iOS 10 iPhone features On the WWDC keynote yesterday, Apple presented news about watchOS, macOS, tvOS and of course iOS. But when presenting iOS 10, it was almost only about the iPhone. The iPad was hardly mentioned at all. ...

Loving the use of Launch Center Pro to do automation on my iPhone. It is working a treat in conjunction with Editorial app and the workflows I have made in that app.

A story about shitty xtians and their despicable tactics. 
Here's a disturbing story about a recent graduate of Delta High School in Colorado. Cidney Fisk was one of those intelligent, rebellious students who knew that the promotion of religion and irrationality in her school was illegal. She dared to do something about it -- and for speaking up, she was kicked right in the GPA.

Swipes to get things done in iOS. iPad Work Efficiency.
iPad work efficiency using gestures With the amazing range of applications we have available now for using with our iPad we can get fantastic iPad work efficiency. It doesn’t matter what it is you want to do, there’s going to be an app for that. One of the ways to increase your iPad work efficiency is to make full use of the control gestures. I often use the four finger swipe to moving between applications. Then there is the five digit pinch. Wit...

Great thanks here in Catalonia. I have not been on Google+ so much lately. Still doing automation stuff on my iOS devices and I wrote a book on iPad Art.
We'll have to have a proper chat sometime soon.
