Literature & Latte says Scrivener 2.0.5 (, an update of their content-generation tool for writers, is now available on the Mac App Store. It requires Mac OS X 10.6.6 and costs US$44.95.

Scrivener is an application that stays with you from that first, unformed idea all the way through to the first or even final draft says its creator, Keith Blount. It won’t try to tell you how to write; it just makes all the tools you have scattered around your desk available in one application, he adds. Virtual index cards store a synopsis for every document you create and more.

With Scrivener you can edit multiple documents. You can create “limitless” documents in the same project and edit them separately or merge them dynamically and edit them as a whole.

A fully-featured outliner helps you take control of your work’s structure. A keywords system keeps track of characters, themes or ideas. With Scrivener, you can view your text in full screen mode. You can export your finished draft to your favorite word processor for final formatting, including support for footnotes, annotations and images. You can also export to the epub format directly, allowing export of manuscripts for reading on a Sony Reader, in iBooks on the iPad or for e-publishing. Scrivener 2.x includes support for cover images, footnotes and structured tables of contents.
