Excellent app with few bugs

I had been looking for a new application to collaborate with others on projects with for some time and have to say I find Arc Studio to be one of the best I have experienced on a mobile device. I ended up subscribing to the full plan but did find a bug in which the modal window does not go away after finalizing the subscription. I found that a fix is to exit the app, remove it from background processes, lock the device and then launch it again. With the exception of this interface issue I am quite pleased with my experience.

Interesting new age of screenwriting

One day I’m sitting at my mundane office job, realizing with the random free time I have at work I’d rather be at home screenwriting; a lot of the time I’m using iPhone notes to write ideas, yet eventually you gotta start working on a draft. This solved that for me. Being able to write even in the bathroom lol has been of great use, the cloud based saving is also convenient. Being able to Pick up where I left off on my computer is also brilliant. The only thing I’m not crazy about is being able to export it into a file has the stamp of the app name on it; which is unprofessional so I would have to copy and paste it into a different screenwriting template I have in order to draft any type of final draft or shooting draft. But for rough drafts this works very well.

I have the paid version and for some reason when exporting to pdf from the phone app I get weird spacing errors; basically it is double spaced in places it shouldn’t be. As well I’m the actually phone app there’s big gaps between my writing at times and I assumed those were new page gaps but when I export that’s not the case. Any help?

Thank you for the review! The branding only exists on exports on the free version – we offer exports on free of course, but add branding so people help spread the word instead of paying for a subscription. Hope this makes sense.

Let me start off by saying this app was absolutely my favorite app for screen writing I was using the free version that apparently is only a “7 day fee trail “( I had it free for much longer and never had any issues with it ). Now, I’m not really sure what they did to this app or what the changed when they got greedy and wanted to start charging you $70 a year for an app that was free for all and now all of a sudden has flaws and bugs and glitches up the A. Whatever you guys did to the app on the current update please change it back. I’m constantly having issues every 3-4 lines. I can’t use half the features on the app because they’re either the $90 a year version or they are completely unusable because of glitches. I understand having to pay for the app since it’s possibly become more popular and I forked out the money since the browser version is absolutely awful and useless, I’m seriously dissatisfied with my new experience in an app I used to cherish and love. It made writing so easy and seamless and now I find myself having to stop every 5-10 minutes to figure out a glitch or bug or the app completely crashes. Shame on you guys for messing this app up completely. I hope to see further improvements as I still am forced to use the software after spending $70 on it lol.

Hi Jackie, could you message support with a description of the glitches you are seeing – that definitely doesn't sound normal. We're happy to take a look at this and apologize for any inconvenience.
