Plotline is a fun, colourful, and tactile program for writers, and is designed to help you map out the structure for a story, novel, or screenplay.
1 Plotline breaks stories down into plotlines and scenes. Add plotlines to cover the key strands of your story, then add scenes that reference those plotlines.
2 Arrange your scenes into the classic 3-act structure.
3 Lay your scenes out with the scene overview tool, a scrolling window into your story that shows the ebb and flow of your scenes according to how intense the scene should be.
4 Move your scenes around between acts to get the best dramatic structure for your story.
5 Generate a synopsis of your story for reference when you write.
6 Export the synopsis as a plain text format file or as an OPML file for import into other supported programs.
7 A built-in set of help documents are always to hand to guide you through using the program.
Please note: Plotline is not a word-processor. It is a planning tool that allows you to build up a view of the layout of your story.

Ratings and Reviews
I don't know how I survived without this app before. It's incredible, flexible and can be used just about anywhere. Best of all, the finished synopsis can be exported to other devices, meaning it can be printed out for your convenience. I have used it to plan my last five novels and would highly recommend it to anyone who wishes to write, whether they be novice, amateur or profressional.
This is good...
I haven't seen another app like it aimed at writers. What a brilliant way to plot things out based on the 3 act structure. I'll be recommending this app to all my writer friends.
