Ever see the movie when a rabbit eats a robot?? Me neither, but you can write it with SCRIPTS PRO! ----------------------------------------------When writing in desktop screenplay programs, you forget about the program all…..
Rated 2/5 based on 3 customer reviews.
I cant see!!!
I'm using a bluetooth keyboard to type my scripts on this app but when I get to the bottom of the screen instead of it automatically scrolling down I end up typing below the screen. I cant see what I'm typing. I try pushing the page up by hand but will only go up one line so when I go down to type on the next line I cant see anything again. PLEASE PUT SOME SORT OF AUTOSCROLL ON THIS!!! I would like to have what I'm typing to be in the middle of the page but just being visible would be great!!!
In the right direction, but still not quite there yet for Final Draft users...

The app seems WAY more stable now, with my only major hang-up occurring during the "preview" function. Playing around with the newest version, I was actually getting excited at the prospect of finally having a serviceable scriptwriting solution in my iPad. Then I imported a pilot I'm working on. None of the act breaks were there, and there was no way to add them. I like the direction this app is going on, but for TV writing, act breaks are pretty important. I'm upping it back to two stars, but it'd get three if it was just a little more stable when previewing. It'd get four if it recognized act breaks from Final Draft. And it'd get five stars if it had to the ability to import a Final Draft file, make a change or two, then export it without losing one iota of the formatting.
As requested by the developer, I am updating my review after trying the new version. Unfortunately, I still cannot make a recommendation based on my experience thus far, and I even have to lower my rating (from 2 to a single star) because it's actually gotten less stable.
I imported an FDX script I had written on my desktop just to make some changes on the go -- my primary need for a program like this -- but every time I "previewed" the script (just 29 pages) it crashed. Also, the awkward handling of in-dialogue parentheticals is a major issue. Not only are they impossible to do when starting a script in this program, but even when importing they get messed up. I'm not talking about the standard parenthetical just below the name, I'm talking parentheticals in the middle of the dialogue, like a (beat) or a (short stage direction).
I do appreciate all the time and effort the developer has done thus far to make this app the first of its kind (for the iPad). But as someone who needs a script's formatting to remain 100% consistent regardless of the platform, I still cannot recommend this one. If your writing needs are simpler, or going between Final Draft and this app isn't as important, maybe this will do. But for now I still must wait til another version or another program comes out to make screenwriting a reality on my iPad.
Update Saves It
Before the new update, this app was IMPOSSIBLE to handle. It had a tremendous sluggish performance and all the smart type stopped. But know after the update, it's great! Highly Recommended!
