Great pre-production app

Great little app that syncs well with the other Celtx apps and desktop software. It's pretty much replaced my old pen-and-paper ring-binder full of scribbles! Never really used the "sketch" function to build floor plans or shots though- I just draw in another app and import the images. You can also jump straight to the script as well, which is a lot more convenient than viewing a pdf.
If Celtx are listening, there are a few things the app needs: the ability to draw directly in the app (rather than having to use a drawing app), the ability to add more detailed and more visible notes to shots and a way to export the boards and shot lists so you can email/print them. Oh, and the very necessary ability to actually name/number the shots!
It'd also be cool to be able to mark coverage for a sequence- maybe by selecting a range in the script and creating a shot marker for that bit so you could plan your coverage for the scene.

Potentially great if syncing worked properly!

I found this after starting to use the Celtx Scripts app which is fantastic and with full cloud functionality allows you to write on the go with a variety of devices (iPad, phone and desktop) - very useful.

Naively, I assumed that the storyboard part of it would work as seamlessly. Unfortunately not! Any storyboards you make using desktop software can't be seen on the iPad and vice versa which is pretty stupid, especially considering the iPad version had cloud sync built in! As far as I can see, it simply syncs up from the iPad to the Celtx server which means the only other way to edit it is via a web browser logged into Celtx where you don't have all the options that you have in the desktop version!

The most useful feature is undoubtedly that the storyboard can be created from the script with an immediate breakdown of all the scenes. However this is a one time feature. In other words - if you later need to update your script for any reason, then your storyboard and scene numbers will be out of sync and this is the same on both desktop software and the iPad version.

If the developers would sort this out I would upgrade my rating from 3 stars to 5!
