Scriptation, the #1 PDF annotation app for Film and Television production, is the only app that can intelligently transfer annotations between PDFs.

Whether you're a crew member on a big budget feature or a student working on your first production, Scriptation saves hours of time collating scripts and re-writing notes by hand.


If you’ve ever had 30 revision pages on a 40-page script, you know how time consuming and tedious it is to copy your notes to new script pages. Scriptation’s proprietary note transferring algorithm, Transcription, analyzes script changes and transfers every note to its corresponding location in the next draft in literally seconds.

"Scriptation is a game changer for me. When a new draft comes out, I open the app and select which earlier version I want to import my notes from, and in less than a second, every note I have made is now transferred to the latest draft. Every time I do that it feels like a magic trick." - Michael Spiller, Primetime Emmy Award Winner for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series for the Modern Family episode "Halloween".

"The miracle of Scriptation is that any script notes you make can be transferred to their correct place in subsequent drafts. You don't have to waste time copying the same notes over and over. Everyone should have Scriptation!" - Alex Reid, Primetime Emmy Award Winner for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series for the Malcolm in the Middle episode "Bowling".


Use an array of features such as drawings, notes, free text, images, sound recordings, and so much more. Scriptation supports all common annotation types, and even includes a preset color picker that let’s you easily switch colors between highlights, underlines, and strikethroughs.


With document previews, you can quickly scan through and bookmark script pages, making dog-eared scripts a thing of the past. And our search function allows you to find any text or annotation instantly.


Email, text, or airdrop your annotations to members of your production team. You can choose to send individual pages or full drafts of the script with your notes on them. And, if you must, a printing option is also available.


Create folders with our robust document management system. Add scripts and production documents from the native mail app, or third party apps like Dropbox, Google Drive, and Gmail, and move them seamlessly into folders on Scriptation.


Connect your Dropbox account to the Scriptation App and import files into custom folders on Scriptation.

Great app, solid update


Layers! Insert pages! Such a great update. As a director and associate director, I h3ave used this on network and cable multicam sitcom, short narratives, as well as to make notes on development drafts. Great app that consistently works and if you’re looking to ditch paper as much as possible (Especially if you’re on a show that has constant revisions) this is a great way to do it.

Response developer, great updates. Price for app is reasonable, and I would suggest developer add a tip jar in app.

Changed my world


I'm completely paper free thanks to this app. Can't say enough good things about it and I'm finding new ways to use it every time I dig deeper into it.

Support is second to none. Have always had my questions answered within a day or two. Five Stars all day. A director's dream app.

A game changing app for film business professionals


Phenomenal. Game changing. The ability to transfer notes and annotations is life changing. Saves hours. Being able to add audio notes is clutch. This is a great app for anyone in the film business. Going truly paperless is finally here. I even use this for call sheets.

It still has a bug here and there and being able to sync across devices would be amazing and that’s all gonna come eventually I believe.

The team behind this is super responsive if you have any issues at all. This is worth every dollar.
