Scrivener? StoryMill? Contour? What are the best apps to help a new novelist with National Novel Writing Month?

macOS and Mac Apps

Hi everyone,
Wanted to take the plunge, am up for the challenge to see where it takes me.
Normally, I'm a plunger, but I've thought about planning this one. Has anybody here used Contour? How helpful is it for novelists as far as outlining? I've bought Scrivener ages ago, all I need to do is re-download it to my Mac. How do I use the Outliner in it? The Corkboard is where all of your files are, but the app description says there's an Outliner. How does that work?
If I can't figure out an app over the weekend, there's always plunging. :)
