Look no further for the best dedicated tool for your craft. Dedicated Writing Apps What constitutes the best app for writers depends on their process, genre, and conditions in which they are most productive. Additionally, it depends on what they intend to do with the finished work:
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! 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: 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.
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. This app works great. I love this app!
Clean, uncluttered, beautiful UI. Has import from history option — just in case in delirium I mess up what was a great script and want to go back in time and get earlier script version.

Screenwriting from an iPad? Check. Suitable to replace a laptop? Well, we're a step closer. Scott Stein/CNET A handful of weeks ago, before I bought an iPad, I wondered whether Apple's slim little. Final Draft was created by an aspiring screenwriter who found it both challenging and time-consuming to format his scripts such that they would meet the exacting standards of Hollywood studios.
