Why is it so hard to find good software?

frustration


Where’s the writing software?


Scrivener seems to be the best thing going for writers but to be completely honest, it’s clunky and bug-filled. The interface is horrible, the features are dismal and the complete lack of add-ins is depressing.


Word is expensive.


Google Docs is completely free, tracks your changes, etc., but also lacks any decent writing add-ons.


There is software out there for screenplay writers but nothing for fiction writers.


I’d like a program that lets me organize my thoughts and ideas and research in a “OneNote” fashion, create a visual flowchart/outline that has easily moveable pieces, like video editing software and of course, a nice writing interface with some better than crappy grammar and spell checking abilities.
