    • It is actually a better alternative to Scrivener because of its clear, organisation features. I wish I would have discovered this before I purchased Scrivener. Bibisco is much easier to use: You don't need lengthy tutorials to read just to get started. Hands down this is better. callywDec 2016 • 6 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Laughably bad. Scrivener has the good sense to stay out of your way when you know what you're doing bibisco not only got in the way constantly (no, follow OUR tutorial!) it also insisted on doing it in, I kid you not, two inch caps. Is this some kind of joke? Guest • Nov 2017 • 8 agrees and 6 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • it's free, it's easy to use and intuitive. The only thing that would make ywriter better is if it had an option to sync to other devices or such. Seriously, this is so much better than scrivener! isahbellahMar 2017 • 3 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
