Storyist is a nice program, much in the flavor of Scrivener, Avenir, Jer's Novel Writer, Journler, CopyWrite, MacJournal and other writing programs that I've purchased and registered. Each of these programs has an up and downside relative to the others, but they all have a major advantage over a bloated word processor. Judging by the small number of Storyist forum members, I assume sales for Storyist's sales have been limited. This shouldn't be because Storyist is stable with nice features and an excellent interface. I have invested in a significant number of writing programs to make those programs and updates available to me, and to support their developers' efforts to promote future versions. Unfortunately, the unusually high price of Storyist (about double the cost of similar programs) will keep me from purchasing it.
