Multi-Device World

I had to get an oil change today, so I packed up my iPad Pro and headed to the dealer 1. I dropped off my key and sat down at a waiting room desk to write out my sermon for Sunday. The chair was a little low, and the desk a bit high, so typing was interesting — but functional.

I wrote for a while before I was told my car was ready. So I quick synced my Scrivener project and packed up. I was about two thirds of he way through the message.

This is where things get interesting 2.

Our lease is almost up, so we’re considering our options with the current car. I sat down with someone in sales and went over our options. While she went out to run some numbers I found myself wishing I could write some more of my sermon, but thought it would probably be rude to pull out my iPad and start typing at the salesperson’s desk. Then I remembered a very important point.

I have Scrivener on my iPhone.

Once I woke up to reality I pulled out my phone, synced with Dropbox, and opened my project. In a matter of moments I was typing away on my sermon manuscript.

I added a few paragraphs before the salesperson returned, and then synced as she sat back down with the numbers she’d run. We chatted for a bit and then I went home, at which time I opened Scrivener in my iPad, synced, and finished writing my manuscript.

It’a a multi-device world.


  1. It’s a leased car so we just get all the service done there. 
  2. For writing nerds.
