Bugfixes and Performance Enhancements
Nope turned Yep
Update: They have fixed it. Now it stays open properly. It works! I've written half a screenplay on my phone now, which feels weird. I wish they would add a "save" button or some indicator of when it last synced and saved. As is you have to trust that it saved all your work when you're closing the app. Other than that, excellent app!
I have been using Celtx since about 2012, and really wanted to like this app. I decided to download it for convenience of making tweaks and notes on my phone, directly into the script as I thought of things instead of waiting until I got home. I downloaded, signed in, could see titles of my dozens of scripts, and the app just closed. I opened it again. 5 seconds...closed. About 10 tries and it will not stay open for more than 5 seconds after logging in. iPhone 6 iOS 9.3
Messy formatting if there's an error.
This is a great app if you write all the way through your script without changing anything. However when you go back to correct things, it's formatting gets kind of squirrelly. I use it mostly for comics writing, and the panels number get off right away. It will start number from you total number of panels. So if you are on page 5 panel 1 in the script, it might format it as panel 25. It makes for frustrating revisions because then you have to go back and correct all the panel numbers, which means you waste a ton of time. Also, why can't you format with double spacing? I'm better off using Pages and format by hand.
Since the most recent update, this app is completly unusable. Before, it worked perfectly fine. I mainly used it to read the scripts and I never edited things, so my "perfectly fine" varies from others.
But now anytime I try to open it, I log in, it loads, and it crashes. I've tried logging in many times, and I've reinstalled the whole program.
Until they fix this issue, this app is a waste of space on anyone's phone.
