This is for amateurs only. Not a single "pro" aspect to it. Tried it for a day and couldn't get Final Draft files in or out without converting to RTF. The software is clunky to use, and lacks finesse of any sort.

Worse, however, is the absolutely horrid rendering on screen of body type in your screenplay. It is just terrible, like something from Windows 95 with no aliasing of characters. I can't emphasise enough how poorly type is displayed on screen. You can't imagine it. Really crappy and without any effort at quality.

Seriously, really just awful! The developers should be embarrassed.

Forget this AND Final draft. Instead use Fade In which is hands on the best application to write screenplays. Period.

I agree that the original description that the developer provided is a bit confusing. I rephrased that first sentence; I think it now conveys the developer's intended message. :-)

Let's hope that excellent change is enough to keep a positive spin on this low-end product. It is a bit like offering a cardiac arrest patient a band-aid though. The developer's site and and the product itself appear to be about 2 on a 1 to 10 scale of competitive awareness and sophistication. It feels like some eleven year old kid cooked it up in his garage. It offers nothing new at all. It looks cheap, feels cheap and is cheap. It is pretentious and deliberately misleading to call it a 'Pro' screenwriting app. Not rateable as it is. I fear it will sink without trace.
