We love our users and where other screenwriting companies can’t deliver, we do. We’ve listened to your requests and here are the list of features to expect for the next release of Scripts Pro for iPad and iPhone:
Intelligent Element Selection
Now you can change script content to elements like Scene Headings, Actions, Characters, and Dialogues directly from the toolbar with ease. Tab and enter buttons give you the functionality your used to and format elements to standard.
Rich Text Formatting
Use text formats like Bold, Italic and Underline. All of your imported scripts will retain their RTF formats from desktop software to Scripts Pro and back.
Dropbox and Itunes Transfer
We’ve expanded import and export options to include integrated Dropbox and wireless iTunes transferring. Access your files from anywhere.
Scripts is being built with iCloud. You don’t have to worry about saving your files. Now you can keep your work up to date without interrupting your writing. Your scripts with all the latest edits will automatically appear on all your iOS devices.
Wirelessly print your scripts straight from your device. You don’t need to download any software or install any drivers. With a couple of taps you can go from viewing your script on your screen to holding the printed copy. You can even choose which pages to print.
iPhone 4s users can also use Siri to dictate script content with their voice instead of typing. This will convert all of your words to text. Cool huh?
Currently, this is limited to only the actual content within an element (Dialogue, Action, etc). Once Apple releases total control of Siri to developers you’ll be able to tell Siri whether your specifically adding a Character, Dialogue, Action, etc to make writing (or talking) into Scripts Pro more seamless.
Advanced Scripts Previewing
Check out how many pages you’ve written with accurate page counts. Use page flipping to check out your work like an actual script or use the new page navigator at the bottom of every page to quickly find a specific page. Text too small? Then use the zoom feature.
Improved Intelligent Type
Concentrate on writing and don’t worry about typing the same names and phrases over and over. With our pop-ups we’ll make it easier on you. Tap and Scripts Pro will automatically fill in Characters, Scene Headings, Transitions, Locations and much more.
Improved support for .FDX files
Work seamlessly with your favorite desktop software like Final Draft 8 and Celtx.
Improved Performance and Bug Fixes
No more lag with scripts that exceed 100+ pages. Formatting issues and other bugs from the previous version are squashed.
Beautiful new interface
We designed an interface that is easy on our user’s eyes and a great creative environment to work in. We know you’ll love it.
This is a list of only the new or improved features. Of course you’ll still have the features from the previous version. Emailing scripts, Character menu, Scene Rearranging, Title Page Creation, External Bluetooth keyboard support etc.
Please note that the update will be for iOS 5 users. iOS 4 and earlier will continue with the current Scripts Pro version.
