It's always frustrating to find an app you love but discover it won't work on your device! Or that the Windows version is two years behind the Mac version.

The Scene One writing app runs in every browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.) and on any device (laptop, tablet, phone). And - best of all - each time you log in, you get the latest version of the software!

Don't lose a word ever again

With older writing software you had to save a bunch of files to your hard drive and maintain manual back-ups. And God help you if you wanted to share a manuscript with a friend or switch from your PC to your laptop.

Scene One automatically saves all of your work to the cloud, and keeps your work organised in separate projects. Meaning that you can pull out your phone on the way to work and tap in a few words with no extra effort.
