Ratings and Reviews
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 For starters, the app uses an outdated version of the .fadein format, meaning every time you open a file that's been made or edited in the mobile app on desktop, it needs to make a legacy backup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.
Convenient but I would love it if...
This app is very convenient. I recently replaced my laptop with an iPad and that is the sole place where I write so I needed to move to this Mobile version. It’s simple and doesn’t glitch. After leaving Final Draft behind, FadeIn is a wonderful program that I can’t recommend enough.
Since this isn’t just an app that I use while I’m traveling or away from my laptop, it would be great if it included the following:
Auto capitalization - if there’s a way that I can change that in the settings, please let me know. I am totally spoiled by that feature in the full price version.
Character name recognition and auto fill - It’s VERY tiresome to have to type in full names each time, especially in a dialogue-heavy scene. Again, spoiled by the paid version.
Sync to the paid version - If someone purchased the full price version, it would be nice if this app would sync to it and allow us to pull our existing work from it. It took me a long time to figure out why my files in Dropbox weren’t showing up in the app until I searched through the FI website’s help page and found that the folder containing your FI files needed to be a sub folder, not a main folder. I created one called WORK and drug my WRITING folder into it and voila!
All in all, this app is more than worth the price and I will continue using it but I hope that some of the conveniences of the paid version can be incorporated into it.
Yes, I would appreciate more of a WYSIWYG editing environment, as well as some of the features from the desktop version, like the ability to rearrange scenes easily and the option to create different types of scripts, but quite frankly, I love this app. For the money, it can't be beat. There are always updates so developer continually works on it, and getting customer service is easy. Own both the desktop and the iPad versions and could only be slightly more satisfied. The only app that comes close is Final Draft Writer and that's 50 bucks. Of you want a good app for screenwriting on your iPad, this is it. The desktop version is slick. Add the features I mentioned above and this will be the only screenwriting tool needed.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
