Thousands of filmmakers use DubScript to read and write movie, TV, and webisode screenplays.

READING formats:

• Fountain 1.1 (.fountain, .txt, .spmd) -- http://www.fountain.io
• Final Draft (.fdx) -- http://www.finaldraft.com
• Trelby (.trelby) -- http://www.trelby.org
• CeltX (.html) -- http://www.celtx.com

To WRITE scripts:

Swipe to the "Write" screen and create a New Screenplay. In the free-flowing editor... start typing! Since you're using Fountain, you don't have to think much about formatting, indenting, or technical stuff that could interrupt your flow. Just be creative.

Swipe back to the "View" screen, and DubScript auto-formats to standard screenplay presentation.

Open scripts from your device's storage or other apps like Gmail attachments-- even cloud services like Drive. Take a Final Draft (.fdx) script, change it in Fountain, then save back to .fdx. Export your script to a Web page, share it with others, or make a back up for yourself (via mail, Gmail, Drive, etc.).
