Ratings and Reviews
Ignore the dummies...
I'm not sure why some fools on here are saying you can't import txt files or use Dropbox. I imported a script that was in txt format into this app from Dropbox. Worked fine. That functionality is even explained in the quick tutorial when you first open the app. Also takes fdx files.
The script doesn't look very well formatted when you are writing in the app but if you use the "preview" feature it presents your script in a very cool, flip style presentation with the script formatted just as you will see when you print it- which you can also do from the app.
Backup your work and use the cloud and you won't lose your work. Ignore the haters...and the dolts. This app works great.
5 years after my initial review, the developer hasn't added a few key features
Scripts Pro is by and large a great substitute for Final Draft on my iPad, and it makes your script look really sexy too.
One big feature that's missing is the ability to navigate by page numbers in edit mode. Page numbering is only available in a preview mode, while editing mode essentially presents an unbroken continuously scrolling script.
As the app makers must know, screenplay structure relies heavily on act breaks and midpoints falling around familiar page lengths, in both TV and film.
But when I need to return to that scene on page 48, scrolling is tedious, and it's hard to use the scene navigator -- spec scripts aren't numbered, so trying to remember the scene number is like asking someone to find a penny that was thrown in the ocean an hour ago.
So a page navigator would be great. Input the page number, and jump to that scene in the editor. Or from preview mode, double tap a slugline to jump to it in the editor.
Can't wait until these features are added and then I can give this app 5 stars instead of 4!
Edit: I posted this review 5 years ago and unfortunately the features I requested above have not been added, so I'm downgrading my rating to 2 stars for lack of developer responsiveness. Regardless, I have another feature request: a way to copy/paste chunks of a script containing multiple scene elements (sluglines, dialogue, action, etc.) without losing the formatting.
I only have a few complaints. Copy/paste could use work. It puts everything into the same format, whether it's dialogue or scene description. Also, it always put a "&" before the pasted section, and ";nbsp" or something like that at the end.
Also, while it's great that it remembers character names in the character format, it should also suggest them in the action format, so I don't have to capitalize and write a name every time someone does something.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
