Yes to the desktop, no to the mobile

I appreciate everything this program has done for me. The four star is for the entire program as a whole, however the same cannot be said for the mobile programs. For one there isn’t an app that includes all of them in one thing, and for some reason they had a feature that includes novels which is only shown in the “desktop” version but seldom mentioned in the mobile program. Some controls for it can be finicky and can get you into some trouble if you’re not careful enough. Worst of all if you’re not careful with this, you could lose a significant amount of progress in a short amount of time. I feel like that these apps are poorly managed as they are not properly adapted to the latest version seen in the “desktop” variation. Don’t get me wrong, I really love this program, this has gotten me through high school and into a lot of things including a self publishing business using Celtx as a whole. If you love Celtx as a whole too, you’re better off saving the painful hassles by just getting a laptop fitted for Celtx.

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.


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.
