7 Best Screenwriting Apps to Make Your Lives Simpler
Some of the best scriptwriters have written their masterworks without counting on applications or even a computer, but sometimes an application is exactly what you need to organise your thoughts or rationalise the write in. Below, in no particular order, we have listed seven apps that support the scripting world.
Cittex Scripts (.79$, iPhone, iPad, Android): The number one on the iTunes store, Celtx Scripts allows you to work on your scripts whenever and wherever you want. Better yet, you can synchronize it with your on-line studios (if you sign up to Celtx) so that you can review and review changes to scripts with your teams so that they are always up to date.
Definitive Draft Author ($19.99, iPhone, iPad): It' not expensive, but if you are writing with Final Draft this is the right application for you. You can use Final Draft scripting on your iPad or iPhone to create, modify, and view Final Draft script. Or you can move your Final Draft 9 script from your desk top to your iPad or iPhone and back via email or dropbox and your script will appear in perfect format each and every single one.
Show mobile phone ($4.99, iPhone, iPad, Android): It is designed as an alternate to Final Draft and is for use with Final Draft in conjunction with it. You no longer need to care about the correct format of the scripts. It contains default scriptstyle and provides a tool to quickly select characters and place name.
Posting card ($2.99, iPhone, iPad): It is not a screenwriting application in itself, but it will help you to organise your thoughts in one place without having to worry about laying index pages out of hard copy. Skripte Pro ($11.99, iPhone, iPad): It' practical, no matter what screenwriting application you use. Import, export and preserve your Final Draft, Celtx and formated text file from most of your desktops scripting applications.
Storyteller ($14.99, iPhone, iPad): Storyist's Richtext Writer makes it simple to produce correctly sized scripts and scripts with commentary, image, header, footer and stylesheets. Read weekend (free, iPhone, iPad): Made by scriptwriter John August, Weekend Read is really a script-reading application, not a typing application.
However, it allows you to simply view scripts on your iPhone with a selection of font styles and font sizing. Here are some earlier tales about apps for film-makers.
