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.
Works great but I'm terrified to use it.
I love the usability. It is easy to change from slug lines to dialogue. I like how it pops up names and location to save you from typing more than you need. Easily can export as text or pdf. This is amazing.
So what's the catch?
Several times I would open up my script and, after I have already typed the new section, I realize something is off. A whole section of my script is missing! My whole previous session would be simply gone! The whole time I had Wifi and it still decided to not sync. There has to be a way where I can write the script LOCALLY and then have the choice to upload it to the Celtx server if I choose. Always having this constant cloud connection allows script sections to disappear. I am terrified to write to much!
The only work around I have is emailing myself a pdf. It has saved me several times. But when you're writing a feature and every moment used to rewrite what was delete is worse than wasted time. Don't put your trust in it!
