Welcome to ScriptBuilder!

ScriptBuilder was made to capture and build screenplay ideas on the go. Before you face the dreaded blank page, build up your screenplay idea with ScriptBuilder!


• The Idea section helps you clarify your movie idea by answering specific questions, getting to the heart of your story

• Structure your story arc with Act 1, Act 2, and Act 3 builders. All three act sections contain Act Beat questions to facilitate new ideas and notes which will prepare you when you're ready to build scenes

• The "Character Builder" feature prompts you to answer questions about your characters to help you get to know your characters better and to discover their arcs. Getting to know your characters will make writing your scenes with these characters smoother. (IAP for $0.99)

• The "Scene Builder" feature provides useful questions that when answered help bring clarity to what the scene does to move your story and characters forward. (IAP for $0.99)


I originally built this app because I found myself coming up with ideas for screenplays but didn't have a dedicated place to capture them. I also wanted a tool that would help me flesh out the story, characters, and scenes before I sat down in front of my computer to write.

I want to continue to iterate on ScriptBuilder with new features to make it even better. If you have any feature requests, questions or comments, please go to the support url and send me an email :)

I hope ScriptBuilder helps you along your path in creating compelling stories in both feature films and television. If it does help, please share ScriptBuilder with your family and friends. Thank you!

I only recently started using the app after reading reviews and the app synopsis. My first thought as I started to carve out my script was, “why does it auto load my name?”. This app allows me to write in the title of my book but doesn’t let me identify myself as far as who the book was written by. Why not let me identify myself and decide if I want to use my legal name or not? I may choose to use my first and middle, who knows but this app doesn’t allow room for that. I’m sure I’ll have more feedback as I get more acquainted with it but so far - aside from that, I’m happy.

Update*** It deleted ALL of my character characteristics (the answers to the questions). I’m literally crying!!!! Please help. I clicked “save” after every sentence I typed. 😔💔

Amazing idea, but...

The concept definitely gets five stars, but the issues brings it down. I’ve been having the same problem that most are having which is the saving issue which is beyond frustrating. So what I’ve been doing is, writing/filling in the info> copy what I wrote > Save>Save again>Go back>come back to what I just wrote to see if it saved (9x out of 10 it does not save)>Paste>Save>save again and that usually does the trick. But it is such a time waster. So, after I spend a couple of minutes to a few hours using the app and when I’m done, I immediately send myself a PDF via email.

A new thing that started today is when I’m writing/filling in the info for example in the Characters Notes, I will start typing a key or two and the cursor will move to a different section like the title of the character in the middle of my typing. 🤬

I really hope they fix these issues because I like the app a lot and I want to love it but with the issues I just can’t. I’m afraid that if I continue using the app I will to throw my phone against the wall, and honestly it’s not my phones fault. 🥺

This is app is great for now.

Please respond to this. This is is great and I mean I love IT. However I don’t see an option to get it from phone to paper or a way to share it. Other then this Little confusing part it’s 5 stars based on the setup alone. Very easy to use. Very helpful. Hopefully this makes my movie a classic. So can you pls help?

Hi Capt Curt1914,

The latest version (1.4.9) has a feature allowing you to export your screenplay as a pdf. On the Screenplay cover view there is an arrow on the bottom right hand corner that allows you to share your screenplay.

I saw your review and that really convinced me to develop this feature. Thank you for your feedback and for using the app :)

Thank you,
