Ratings and Reviews
I’ve used Fade In for awhile now, and it’s relatively okay. It does was its supposed to, it’s better than any of the other screenwriting apps I’ve tried.
My recent problem with it is that whenever I try to write one word, the previous word double backs erases. It takes quite awhile trying to write one scene because of this problem. It’s really frustrating.
If it weren’t for that, I’d definitely give the app a five out of five...
It's the best, but this sure isn't
Fade In is the best desktop screenwriting solution, but the mobile app could convince you otherwise. For starters, the app uses an outdated version of the .fadein format, meaning every time you open a file that's been made or edited in the mobile app on desktop, it needs to make a legacy backup version. This is infuriating. There are other inconsistencies, as well. Cont'd and more doesn't carry over as it should, names don't automatically fill, and the overall design of the app hasn't changed since release. Fade In is good, but I won't hesitate to switch to Scrivener (especially if it ever gets pagination) if the app isn't polished up.
Good but not fantastic just yet
Being a storyteller on-the-go, this app was very appealing to me and in all honesty it is good (if you have very little expectations going into it). BUT there are still issues that need sorting out.
- Autocorrect changes my perfectly coherent sentences and words into gibberish. For some reason autocorrect will remove words like “and” or “the” or even change the pronouns “she” to “he” which is annoying to deal with during a writer’s flow.
- No matter what I do, the app edits wont sync with my Fade In computer software. so I need to literally copy and paste between devices.
- it doesn’t have the best features of the Final Draft app
HOWEVER for a totally free app, Fade In Mobile isn’t half bad.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
