Get your scripts ready for Hollywood with Final Draft Writer for iPad

Final Draft Writer, the best-selling screenwriting software in the world, and the app used to script everything from television specs and pilots to award winning, blockbuster movies, is now available for the iPad.

Final Draft Writer lets you write, edit and read Final Draft scripts on your iPad. Create new scripts or edit existing ones with easy-to-use features such as Tab and Enter navigation, ScriptNotes™, SmartType™, and more. Easily move your Final Draft v.8 scripts from desktop to iPad and back again. Your scripts will appear perfectly paginated and formatted to industry standards every time.

Included with Final Draft Writer for iPad are industry standard templates for stage, film, and TV, and automatic "more" and "continued" pagination. There's SmartType to make entering character names, scene titles, and more really easy to enter, and character highlighting to help you find dialog or track story arcs. Colored pages are supported for active or collated revisions, as are locked pages and scene numbering, and ScriptNotes. You can even keep track of cast, scene, and location reports.

Final Draft Writer is regularly $49.99 but is on sale for $29.99 (that's $20 off!) off until September 30, 2012.

+1 for the "Buffy" box- I am sure it'll be joined by "Avengers" very soon :)

I use Final Draft on PC and Mac, and this works fairly similar. However, for the price point, you can get Scripts Pro fo r$7.99 that handles Final Draft, Celtx, and other kinds of files just as well, with many of the same features. It can even export to .fdx in the last few updates.

madlovemonkey says:

While other screenwriting apps can handle .fdx files now, the main problem is that they can't handle script-notes. This one feature is essential for working screenwriters. I don't like receiving script notes at the best of times, but they're part of the job. $30 is steep for an app, but it's what everyone in the industry uses on a daily basis.
