Storyist intros novel and screenwriting software

updated 03:10 pm EDT, Mon June 2, 2008

Storyist novel/script app

Storyist has released the first version of its self-titled writing software, designed solely for Macs. The program is meant to aid in the creation of novels and screenplays, and in addition to a standard word processor, it includes a component called the Storyboard. This maps out a story using virtual index cards, which are in turn posted on a digital corkboard. Through the latter, writers can pick scenes to edit and rearrange them at will.

The app also separates story material through use of the Project Manager, and relies on an element called Story Sheets to help users keep track of plotting, locations and characters. A variety of project templates are included to further facilitate the writing process. Storyist is a $60 download or $70 on CD, and free as a 15-day trial. Mac OS X 10.4 is required.

    Blatant Rip Off

    This is a blatant rip-off of the Software Scrivener for OSX

    Pretty pathetic when you rip off someone elses work and then rename it to call it your own.

    Scrivener has the same look and feel and what do you know even the same corkboard.

    The GUI is even almost identical.

    Maybe I should redistribute Adobe Photoshop and just rename it Photoship.

    Pathetic

    Comparison?

    How about an article doing an in-depth frank and honest comparison of Storyist, Scrivener, and StoryMill by an expert out there (and that very well may be you, Guest)?
