Fade In Mobile is a companion app for Fade In Professional Screenwriting Software for working with Fade In (.fadein) files. It is specifically designed to work with the unique interface and capabilities of your mobile device.

It takes care of proper script formatting, including standard script styles, and provides tools for quickly selecting character and location names, and for efficiently navigating your script.

This basic version of the app is intended to give you an idea of what working with the full version is like. Create scripts on your device, export them to your iCloud/Dropbox/Google Drive/OneDrive account, and import scripts as read-only.

Upgrade to the full, paid version of Fade In Mobile to import your work from the full or demo desktop version of Fade In Professional Screenwriting Software (including imported PDF and Final Draft scripts).

When upgrading to the full version, first export your work to your iCloud/Dropbox/Google Drive/OneDrive account, or to your device. Note that this free version allows read-only import.

Doesn't work very well

It doesn't work very well, very limited settings, poor implementation of Dropbox. This app, even free version should be able to import Dropbox without having to do it directly within the app. Dropbox in this app loses its sync and has to be reloaded in. Imports from Dropbox is slow even for small files, unable to open synced files even to read only offered in free version. I had it installed last year in IOS 8 because a collaborator uses FadeIn but uninstalled it for similar reasons. I'll be uninstalling it again. I installed it this time because I am working with the same collaborator (now using IOS 9 & 10) and will switch to PDF or OpenOffice instead. Fadein needs updated to import from other Apps like the free Open Office and also from Google Dropbox. An iPhone user should be also be able to go directly into the Dropbox app and do an "Open-in" on the documents and be able to select Fadein to have the document launch into Fadein. This app seems very technology outdated for iPhone users.

Doesn't work

I'm on Iphone 14 plus. I tried to type, it doesn't do anything. If you try to change the settings it freezes the app. The only time it works is if I edit the template screenplay. Even then, the shortcuts like Scene heading, Dialogue etc don't work and/or automatically change like it does on a desktop. I can't understand how this app even passed qc (assuming there's even a qc) before putting on the platform?

Great for writing screenplays for theatre and cinema. No complaints!
