Scriptly is a full-featured screenplay-formatting app that takes full advantage of the iPad’s fluid interface, allowing the creative aspect of screenwriting to take center stage. Its elegant, uncluttered workspace utilizes familiar keystrokes so you’ll be up and running on a feature film, sitcom or one-hour script immediately.
Formatting your project to meet industry standard guidelines becomes second nature, with a simple double-tap of the return key for access to all the classic script elements. You can also choose to work on an external keyboard for classic tab-enter formatting.
During the writing process, Scriptly instantly switches to the next logical scene element, and boasts the kind of smart lists you’d expect in a screenplay formatter, quickly learning character names and locations to make scripting a snap.
Scriptly can read and write Final Draft 8 and 9 files along with Celtx, so there’s no need to use costly reader apps or conversion programs. Plus, it’s simple to send and receive scripts using both iTunes and Dropbox.
Index Cards are a classic technique for sketching out ideas before writing. Our Index Card feature contains fully editable drag ‘n drop cards that transfer directly into your script.
Our Outline feature lets you work out your scenes, characters, and more before you begin writing the script, and also imports and exports with Final Draft’s Scene Summary function.
Keep track of your cast with detailed character profile pages that have space for a photo, notes, role, goal, actor name and scene list that’s linked to the script.

What's New in Version 1.6
It's Good, but…
I just got this app because my teacher had assigned us to write a pilot episode script, so I figured: why not?
And for having never written a script before, this app really helped.
Too bad it never let me write another one. I don't know if its a glitch or something, but even if I deleted the first script and sample one, it still wouldn't let me create a new one.
It's Not Bad, But...
What I'm running into now is frequent crashes and when opening the app, the characters dialogues get switched around. So I have to go in and correct pretty much everything I've written. Needs an update and bug fixes. Bad.
One Script Only?
Sooo... you can only write one script and then you have to pay $9.99?
I started one and, after a page of writing, tried to add a new script, but no go.
I'm not sure. There are no instructions as to this effect anywhere. It doesn't inspire me with confidence to hand over my $9.99, that's for sure.
