I must be lucky then

I’ve had no problems with this free screenwriter app. If anything it’s taught me how to write a script in common format. And that’s just from getting the hang of what it has to offer. I can now write a script freehand because I know how it looks and what is expected of me as a writer (if that makes sense) HOWEVER when I first used it, I did go back to my script to find some word have been changed to random symbols for example, She was very happy to be chosen BECAME She was £:.& hap:& to be chosen. But that has not happened since I re downloaded it and I have written much more than the last time I used the app so maybe the newest update was a major fix. Basically so far so good. Worth a go EVEN the tutorial is very useful and funny to read

Still Nothing

I still can’t see any of my writing, and as soon as my friend sends me her lines for my next project, I can’t do anything if the writing is still invisible and it keep saying “unable to save error” everything I tried to go back to the scripts I wrote

Absolutely does not work

It just doesn’t work. Files compatibility was fine for me, but I literally couldn’t write anything. Kept bugging out. Don’t waste your time. It’s a shame there’s no perfect screenwriting option for iPad yet, but I guess it’ll happen one day??
