Finally a high quality screenwriting app for my iPhone has arrived.
This is the third screenwriting app I’ve tried. The first was Screenplay by Black Mana which I thought was decent considering it was the first. Next I tried ScriptWrite and couldn’t really get a handle on it.
When I compared the two it was clear that both had some good ideas but mobile screenwriters out there were missing a golden app that put it all together.
Until Scripts Pro came along and got it right!
It is by far the best screenwriting solution on the iPhone. It supports multiple formats for both importing and exporting as well as a clean and easy to use interface. But I’ve seen these features before. It was the TAB button that sold me on Scripts Pro…
Screenwriters finally have a TAB option in an iPhone APP!
Anyone who has every written a screenplay knows the significance of the TAB function. It allows you to easily switch between different elements of the screenplay. Literally every major program out there utilizes this system. (Movie Magic, Final Draft, Celtx etc…)
Finally seeing it in an screenwriting app is fantastic news because it’s hard enough to type quickly on an iPhone. It really isn’t meant to allow you to write full screenplays but it does allow you to get down your ideas wherever you are.
It helps to have an app that makes it as easy as possible to do so.
Note: Nothing says you CAN’T write a full script with an iPhone. I just prefer a full size keyboard when inspiration really hits.
Ah Smart Type… So useful… So easy. Thank you for making it a part of my iPhone and making it easy to use. Like I said, typing isn’t simple on small touch screen devices so every short cut helps. The addition of smart type makes a world of difference to keep you writing uninterupted.
Scripts Pro also makes it easier to manage your scripts. You can reorder scenes and edit them with ease. Even capitalizing words is easier with Scripts Pro.
Basically, what I’m trying to say is the Scripts Pro app is awesome.
Mobile screenwriting is a great way to stay connected to your screenplays and this app is the best way to do it. Whether you are writing a quick scene or working on your next potential blockbuster, this app has everything you need.
We’ve all been waiting to see the mysterious Final Draft app but honestly, I’m good for the time being.
The developers have promised frequent updates and I’m pretty excited to see them improve an already stellar app.
It’s a 30 minute commute to work. Scripts Pro is an instant hall of famer.
It’s well worth the 5.99 price tag.
PS: By hall of famer I mean it has a place on my home screen.
