Customer Reviews

Useful elegant intuitive

An ideal mobile solution for quickly sketching scenes and capturing dialogue before transfer to the desktop version of Final Draft. One-click setup with a Dropbox account couldn't be easier, but, you can also email yourself backups or even 'Select All' of your script (or just a portion of text), then copy and paste your selection into Evernote.

One star reviews here are insincere. Each new (free) update purges all prior reviews. Competitors then quickly repopulate this app's 'Reviews' section with bizarre single star smears. If you appreciate the app and notice it has been updated, please consider refreshing your positive review to protect our investment as writers in the evolution of this unique useful program. Writer is of course optimized for the iPhone 6/ looks gorgeous, feels intuitive, and like most professional iOS apps is extremely stable. There simply is no competition.

Highly recommend Writer for sketching and editing on the fly. You'll love it.

Ease of use-Final Draft Writer

I can't express enough how incredible and useful the writer app for the iPhone is! I can wait in line at Starbucks and write. The app knows exactly what the user is going to do next and helps the writer create the story at a good pace. The formatting is so simple and the whole program gives the writer a great ease of access so that they don't have to worry about anything except for their story. 5 stars all the way!

Awesome app for writers on the move

Writer is exactly the app that writers on the move in today’s market need. Writing or reading pages no longer require for you to be situated in front of the computer. With this app writers can access their script on the go - in the office, during lunch or when waiting in line - keeping their work alive throughout the day, which is sure to lead to greater productivity.
