I love it, but…

I use arc studio on the app and on my macbook, i have no complaints in general but for the app i wish i could access Projects and could edit who had access to scripts on the app. but there is no option even regarding projects

Developer Response ,

Hi Ian,

thank you for the feedback, we will add an option to manage collaborators and projects on the iPhone.

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.

Developer Response ,

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.

Promising until the price tag

I had high hopes that this could be a semi free application for all to use, but that isn’t the case. For any screen writers out there, you can do the same exact thing on this app, but on google docs through extensions and work arounds. It looks just as professional, and you don’t have to pay $100 a year to get full access to any garbage. Its all free. It’s really just complete greed from these guys, so please don’t bother.

It is possible to use this for free, but the roadblocks are too much. A watermark when you export a pdf? Only two scripts? I get that you have to run servers and everything, but why isn’t there a cheaper monthly plan? $5 a month is completely reasonable, and even with how pricy final draft is, it’s still cheaper with the same features. $100 is something you pay once, and they have the audacity to make you pay it again for another year. Don’t download until they change something.
