Fade In Mobile is a complete screenplay editor for Fade In Professional Screenwriting Software (.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 free version of the app is intended to give you an idea of what working with the full version is like. It enables you to export your work to your Dropbox 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) and to work on an unlimited number of screenplays at once.

When upgrading to the full version, first export your work to your Dropbox account. Note that this free version allows read-only import.

The reason I gave this one star is because I couldn't try the features I want this app for. I'm specifically looking for an app that will allow me to import and edit a script. I downloaded the free version first just to sample it and make sure it does what I need it to do. Unfortunately, the two features I'm most interested in are not features you can try before buying. I'm really sorry, but as much as the description of this app appeals to me, buying it without trying out the import and editing features is out of the question for me. I get why you don't have it in the free version, but still, there are ways you can do it. Couldn't you allow the import and editing to work in the free version for a 24 hour period? Maybe you could disable the "save" on any imported script on the free version. Game apps do things like that all the time. I'd also like to try importing and exporting television templates.

Anyway, sounds like this is a really great app, but there really should be a way for people to try out all of the features before purchasing the app.

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.

Not worth the money anymore

The updates to this program in the last year or two have totally kneecapped its functionality as a screenwriting tool for IPad/Tablet users.

Can no longer freely work within the body of a script, instead, it forces the user to work in each element separately. Each in their own little bubble. And you can forget about copy/pasting large blocks of text from Notes or Word. Impossible.

Ugh. Save your money for the costlier competitor or stick with the free version of this or the other middling free Screenwriting program.

Developer Response ,

Please try the newly updated (and redesigned) version of the app. Also, please enable inline editing in app settings.
