It can be better.

It is handy, but the mobile version always tends to jump back to the top of the page instead of staying where you last stopped, so every so often you have to scroll through the entire thing just to find your previous spot.

The cloud-save mechanism can be a lil iffy too because this happened to me once where I was working on a script on the Celtx website on my desktop, saved it there. Then later I tried to edit that draft on my iPhone; what I didn’t know at the time was the version of the draft on my app hasn’t been updated yet, so it was still an older version with none of the new pages. I don’t know why it didn’t update automatically since I have data, but once I opened it, Celtx assumed this old one was the latest version and overwrote everything else on the cloud. Just talking about it sounds confusing. But I almost lost a good chunk of work. Luckily Celtx does offer decent backup on the website. Nevertheless, it’s a scary moment and makes it hard for me to trust the cloud.

It’s also difficult to be precise with placement on the mobile version. I have fat fingers, so I need to add a word or two in between existing words, it can take a while because it keeps highlighting things or words that I don’t want it to.

Would rate 5 but one issue I have (PLEASE REPOND)

I love this app how it keeps track of characters in your stories how it has a special keyboard so you can organize things but for some reason I have a script that I am working on for a project called Juno about the Canadians efforts in the Normandy landings I noticed i wrote a slight historical inaccuracy with a weapon I went to edit it and then all of a sudden the app kicked me out I panicked shortly fearing my work was lost and was happy and relieved when I opened the app and I saw my screenplay there I thought it was just a little freak accident and it would not happen again
I went to edit the inaccuracy then well I was kicked out the app again I tried about three or four more times then I went to the AppStore to write a review which you are reading now please tell me how to fix this I put a lot of heart and care into my screenplay and scripts paying attention to cinematography, subtext, character relationships, plot and those little details that make a film just that much better please respond to me my scripts and screenplay are like my baby so please tell me that you will release a patch or a way to fix it

Love it, but needs an update

I used to love this app until it started crashing every time I try typing and told me it couldn’t connect to the server. I updated the software on my iPhone 7+ to ios 15 and that’s when the problem began. Later I had to restore my phone because of an unrelated issue (wipe all the memory) and the problem persisted. I could use the app but had to try reopening it like 5 times until it would stop crashing. Later I upgraded my iPhone 7+ to the 13 and was hoping it was a software issue specific to my device but the same thing happened on the 13. In addition, The layout isn’t designed to fit a phone without a time button because every time I try to make a note the “done” button is stuck behind the battery icon at the top right of my screen and I have to quit the app and reopen it, which triggers the whole crashing issue again. It says it’s unable to contact the server so my guess is that the crashing issue is related to the Celtx cloud and it’s really annoying. I absolutely loved this app when it worked and was super bummed when it stopped. I’m not hopeful that the problem will be resolved because the App Store said the last update was 4 years ago. I love this app, but it needs an update.
