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
Yes to the desktop, no to the mobile
I appreciate everything this program has done for me. The four star is for the entire program as a whole, however the same cannot be said for the mobile programs. For one there isn’t an app that includes all of them in one thing, and for some reason they had a feature that includes novels which is only shown in the “desktop” version but seldom mentioned in the mobile program. Some controls for it can be finicky and can get you into some trouble if you’re not careful enough. Worst of all if you’re not careful with this, you could lose a significant amount of progress in a short amount of time. I feel like that these apps are poorly managed as they are not properly adapted to the latest version seen in the “desktop” variation. Don’t get me wrong, I really love this program, this has gotten me through high school and into a lot of things including a self publishing business using Celtx as a whole. If you love Celtx as a whole too, you’re better off saving the painful hassles by just getting a laptop fitted for Celtx.
