I love it!


I love this app- it's easy to use, has reasonably good performance, and helps me write scripts anywhere.
I think that an interesting feature to include would be another way to organize your scenes. While the drop down menu is incredibly helpful, and I especially love the ability to reorder scene easily, I often find it difficult to quickly find the scene I need. I have a lot of plot lines/ideas going at once, and it'd be nice to be able to see that on the go. I was thinking that perhaps color coding would help? Just for the drop down list of scenes, so that you could assign a color to certain scenes. That way it'd be easier to navigate your story quickly.

So much potential

I wanted to like this app a lot more when I first came across it but it’s been really hard to. For one, the most particular annoying part is that I keep getting signed out and when I put my info in, I’m told it’s the wrong password or email. I changed my password too even though I really only use one password for some apps. After the change, I decided to come back to the app and again I got the info wrong message again.

Another aspect that bothered me about the app is the frustrating interface while using the app. It’s hard to navigate, clunky and not particularly interesting to look at. Even if my goal isn’t to make professional screenplays, I would still like more ease of use when writing in this app. I like the concept, I like a lot of the tools available to me but it’s still a huge disappointment.

Good luck saving your work


The formatting and function of the app is great, but I’ve been burned multiple times now while working on my screenplay through this app. It’s absolutely ridiculous. Four times I’ve lost pages and pages worth of work do to some fault with the apps saving process. One time, I lost thirty pages worth of work. Unbelievable! I lost a whole act. Make sure you email yourself a copy of what you’ve written before saving. I can’t believe this app has been out for years and still has the same problems. If you want to use Celtx for free then it’s fine, but at your own risk. To pay even a penny a month for a service that loses your hard written work is absolutely ludicrous. Just spend the money and purchase final draft or something that is actually dependable.
