If you use yWriterMac regularly you're encouraged to register. The more people register, the more time and resources I can devote to improving the software.
Registration really matters!
If people continue to register the Mac version of my software, I will work harder and harder to make it the best version of yWriter ever. I will also start converting my other software.
On the other hand, if nobody's interested in yWriter for the Mac, I'll just put it into maintenance mode and update it when I get the chance.

Frequently Asked Questions
I already registered the PC version. Do I have to pay again?
PC and Mac versions are registered separately.
I would love to share the same registration code between both systems, but I really am writing two different programs, each of them with completely different challenges. Also, I need to know which version is more popular ... and thus which I should devote more time to!
Plus, if you have a Mac and PC you could always go for two silver registrations ... which are still cheaper than a single Gold registration. Not only that, it's still half the price of competing software...
If I pay, will you add feature X?
It doesn't work like that. As I said, yWriter is already good enough for a working novelist. After that, some of the features start to get a little ... exotic.
Why is registration only $11.95? Isn't yWriter worth more?
You're not buying the software, you're supporting the developer.
If you really think yWriter is worth more than $11.95 you're welcome to choose the Gold registration.
I don't have any money/can't make a payment. Will you keep nagging me?
Absolutely not. yWriter says 'Unregistered Version' in the main screen title bar (after the author and novel information.) That's it. No popups, no adverts, no opening of unexpected browser windows.
What do I get when I register?
You get a serial number which you can enter into the program, converting it into the registered version.
In future it's possible registered users will have early access to beta releases.
There may also be new and extended features which will only be available to registered users.
But for now, you're just showing your support and helping me to improve the software.
Gold? Silver? What's the difference?
Gold members are entitled to a discount on my ebook creation service.
Keep an eye out for more benefits in future.
If I pay for Silver now, can I upgrade to Gold later?
Yes, I'm sure I can work something out.
Will the same registration work for the Mac and Windows versions?
No, because I had to write the Mac version separately. (There's only one person at Spacejock Software, and I'm also meant to be writing novels!)
This sounds too commercial for me. I'm off.
Look, some people will be annoyed about 'Registered' versus 'Unregistered' software, but many 'free' programs include pay-per-install toolbars, adware and other rubbish and yWriter has never done that - and never will.
I'm Simon Haynes, programmer and author.
