I'm about fed up with Scrivener. It crashed on me a couple of times today. It's awfully busy -- paraphrasing , I just want to type. It doesn't sync gracefully to the iPad and the native iPad version is way late. I could switch to Word, but I'm wondering if there's something better. What do you use?

2) Repeat the next time the problem occurs, because I have no idea what worked last time.
