Chat your way to Hollywood

Dialogue offers a radically different approach to composing scripts, letting you create each scene as a text chat—yes, you write character dialogue and location and action details with drag-and-drop bubbles, as if you're texting a friend.

When you’re happy with a chunk of script, you can easily convert it into a PDF or fountain script format to share your work in industry-standard ways.

Read 'em and weep (or laugh or cringe)

Weekend Read is for script reading—whether you wrote them or not. The app's For Your Consideration section is updated every weekend with screenplays and books to read from Project Gutenberg, the John August Library, and Hollywood writers. There's also a wonderful dark mode and features like character highlighting, page jumping, and search that make it easy to move quickly through a script.

Heads up: The amount of Hollywood screenplays to read in Weekend Read picks up during awards season. You can also import scripts from the web, your email, or cloud storage services like Dropbox and iCloud.
