Update: NO LONGER Busted as hell on iPad Pro 12.9, BUT STILL WITH ISSUES

Second update in a day: Okay, so I know how to make the problem come back. And this app definitely still needs to be optimized for newer devices like the iPad Pro 12.9 and my iPhone X which is a year and a half old now. If I had gotten into this software two months ago, it might not have been as bad—but knowing that I missed a 1/2 price sale on Pro makes the idea of upgrading much more difficult now.

Update: I’m pretty gobsmacked. Today I opened up the app, and that egregious glitch has just disappeared. I don’t get it—the app hasn’t been updated, I had already tried restarting my iPad several times, and ultimately resorted to buying Final Draft Mobile. Worked in FD all day yesterday, only to discover this lovely surprise waiting for me today.

WriterDuet is excellent on the web, but on my iPad Pro 12.9”, there’s a big, dark gray line across the middle of the app that won’t go away. It almost looks a stray menu bar or something, but it’s just there, covering up your script.

App version completely unusable

This is such a shame, because I absolutely love the WriterDuet desktop version. I’m a professional screenwriter, and WriterDuet is my favorite for how easy it makes formatting and saving my scripts, as well as easily sharing project folders with my writing teams. However, the IOS app is completely unusable on my iPad. It worked maybe once, albeit slowly, but since then I have been unable to log on, and unable to switch between project folders if I can get on. When I was previously logged in I got error messages saying I was offline, not logged in, or not synced even when I was online and logged in, and tapping the icons to try to switch scripts or projects did nothing. When I tried logging off and on again to see if it fixed the issue, it now freezes after I put in my email, failing to load or let me change screens. I can’t access any of my scripts or write for my job, which is a huge hit since I am currently relying on my iPad for writing and work. If this app worked like the desktop version it would be 5 stars, but as-is with these bugs I may as well delete the app for all the good it’s doing. If anyone has experienced the same bugs and knows how to fix it, I’d love to know and be able to access my work again.

Switched from FD and loving it

New to Writer Duet from Final Draft and the app just works so well on iOS compared to FD. Full suite of capabilities and the page just looks so much better. So far, very stable too.
