I love the app, it works well in every capacity except it constantly crashes.

Great Customer Service

Okay, I write VERY few reviews but this company is great. I worked with the previous version and just now switched to this new one. I am still a newbie and I am learning all of the things I can do.
I had an issue with a crash on the iPad app. I had no idea why. I emailed and they responded the same day. They tried to solve my issue and when they found out (It was my fault, I tried to upload a script that was the largest file in human existence and that was causing my crash) they STILL tried to find a way to fix my screw up.
This is great to hand to stage manager, AD, light board op, the entire cast… It is a wonderful tool that allows you to very easily pre plan blocking and set movements to save time in rehearsals.

I love this app because of this company and how much thought they put into it.

I am still learning it, but only knowing the basics allows this to be useful right away. Keep those updates coming (like copy only the permanent layer to a new show etc….) and thank you!

Just what I need!!!

I’ve been looking for an app like this forever and I’m so glad I finally found Stage Write!! Wow. If only I had this for the dozens of shows I’ve done up to this point. It’s saving me so much time not having to redo formations or trying to translate from videos or handwritten notes. It’s intuitive and so nice to have things all in one place. No more need to haul binders of show bibles around. The support team has been more than helpful answering my questions. Couldn’t rave about this more, it’s a lifesaver!!
