Scrivener Users?

Any writers out there use Scrivener?

I've been looking for something that isn't as bare bones as Ulysses, but has greater versatility and better research/notation features than Final Draft.

My biggest thing is finding something that can handle all of the note taking and jumping around that I do when I construct a narrative - basically, something that will allow me to see the architecture of a plot more easily, like Final Draft does for characters. It looks like that will be pretty easy between corkboard and notecard modes, as I have a tendency to write chapters out of order and move scenes around a lot and want to be able to visualize it easily.

Obviously, I'm going to do the 30 day trial and see if I can get a feel for it, but I'm loathe to start any new projects on it without some feedback on the program as well.
