Whether you are writing for film, television, the stage, the next great novel or the next non-fiction bestseller, organizing your story is key. Story Liner is an easy-to-use story organization tool that lets you graphically represent your story, add depth and detail, step through the narrative path, and reorganize structure, all with a simple, unobtrusive interface.

Designed by a Hollywood producer, script editor, creative writing teacher and screenwriter, Story Liner is a storyboarding tool that won't get between you and your ideas. Create as many projects as you can devise, with as many levels of detail as you can imagine. Turn your simple linear narrative into a mind-bending Escherian puzzle, and back again.

Many storyboarding apps use video caps and photos to organize a story for film or video projects. Story Liner is a storyboarding tool for writers. Each project is organized into plot points that represent more detail as they go down. Each plot point has a title for easy identification and a description that can accommodate large amounts of text. The plot points can be moved around, relocated to the left or right of another plot point, or swapped with another plot point. New plot points can be added left, right or as a child of any other plot point, and of course can be deleted. The Narrate feature allows you to step through your story in the order you have created, starting at any plot point you wish. The auto-scrolling feature allows you to easily locate plot points that are off the screen.

Simple, intuitive and powerful, Story Liner will give you the competitive advantage you need. You'll no longer fear revision. Show them you've got your story straight. Get Story Liner.

Ratings and Reviews

Solid concept, needs more


The concept is great and the interface simple to use. However, the lack of ability to export makes it unlikely that the app will be useful for more than the most superficial notes, since the fields will have to be manually cut and pasted into the manuscript individually for development. Additionally, the large field sizes are great for adding detail, but not easy to modify once written, as the interface becomes clunky once the keyboard overlaps the data field. Looking forward to the update mentioned in the description, and will most likely up the rating if it addresses these issues.

Has potential, but needs polish.


Good idea, but very rudimentary execution. You can only view one subtree at a time, which makes the drag and drop feature completely useless. You should give the user control over what he wants to view/hide by providing expand/contract buttons.

Also, the UI is a bit confusing. You should follow iOS UI guidelines rather than think up your own.

Good, but could DEFINITELY be better

I like this app, but I would prefer if they added character profile creators, and fix a bug that has the keyboard cover the lower half of the text when typing. Thanks a bunch!!!
