I use scene titles in Scrivener - mostly as an aide-memoire, though.

Since many, if not most, of my chapters have PoV switches during them, named chapter titles wouldn't work for me. Instead I'm careful to name the PoV character in the first sentence or so of the scene, unless it's very obvious from the combination of voice, situation and gender. I remember reading Steven Brust's free Firefly novel on my old ereader and being very frustrated by the PoV changes because he used pronouns nearly all the time.
