Add A LOT (of obvious stuff)

This is pretty good, it didn't screw up or anything, no bugs. BUT its very simple. It would be amazing if you added a feature for *ACTUAL* sketching inside the program, perhaps in just black and white--very simple. Also some headings would be nice: scene, panel, page, slugging, action notes and dialogue to name a few. A feature for panning would also be brilliant. And last, but far from least: a way to play it, like as an animatic and not just click throught the pages.

It's just missing a lot of things, that's all.

(a lot of important things)

Why is this app in the App Store?

This app has not been updated in 3.5 years, and there is no support for it from Celtx. So I have to ask, why is it here Apple? That said, I started a project where I had to get a storyboard out FAST, just using screenshots of new some software I was using to create a tutorial for. It was pretty good at that, but quirky (buggy) as heck. There is no help functionality (404 error), but perhaps the developers thought it was too simple an app to warrant - or too lazy?

Lots of potential, needs help

Storyboards are the visual outline any film maker needs. This app is a great start for that and at a great price. However, it does need some help. Here are my biggest suggestions for an update. There are times when the elements need to be readjusted, however they aren’t able to be selected to do so. Fixing this would be great. COPY AND PASTE are so needed. It would save time so we don’t have to redraw or place things if they are repeated multiple times. And one of the biggest, when making the storyboard a movie, why is it an .avi file? Seriously? This is a mac app, use a more accepted format than what .avi is anymore. .mp4 will get you further!!!
