DubScript is an easy-to-use, feature-packed screenplay editor for film or TV.

VIEW FOUR SCRIPT FORMATS: Fountain 1.x, Final Draft (.fdx), Trelby, and CeltX (.html)
SAVE AS: Fountain, PDF, Final Draft (FDX), and HTML.

Create a script in the fast, free-flowing editor... then type away! DubScript uses Fountain markup, so don't bother manually indenting or waste time identifying what's a character or action or a slug line. Just write. It's all simple plain-text, allowing your creativity to flow.

With a swipe, DubScript auto-formats your text to standard screenplay presentation, which you can save as Final Draft (.fdx), .html, or print to PDF or cloud printer.

Screenplay files are edited on your device in *local* storage. No cloud or Internet connection required. Open scripts from Internet apps like email, Gmail, Drive, DropBox, or other cloud services. And tap the Share button to send the script to yourself or others via Internet apps and cloud services.


It's a way to write quickly and naturally in plain text without dealing with the usual "screenwriting software" formatting stuff that gets in your way. Why is this a big deal? Check out this video from screenwriter John August (unaffiliated with DubScript, BTW) who helped create the Fountain standard: http://goo.gl/9WhkaJ

The Fountain "rules": http://fountain.io/syntax (Hint: just make it look screenplayish, and you should be good!)

DubScript is committed to offering the best value of any serious writing app. THE FEATURES ABOVE ARE ALL FREE! Also, you have a subscription option to disable ads and remove a small watermark notice on printed output/PDF. Cancel any time. Note: there are NO ads in the view screen regardless, so read scripts uninterrupted.

Tiny phone? Helpful tips for getting the most from your screen size:

• Switch to a compact soft keyboard. Better yet, use a Bluetooth hard keyboard
• Disable the top View/Write slider bar (Settings)
• Disable the bottom control bar (Settings)
• Shrink the edit font to 8 or 10 pt (Settings)

    It's good at what it is, a Fountain Editor. Unlike most mobile screenwriting software this allows you to open files that are local on your phone. If you write in Fountain and know Fountain's syntax then this is great for you. But if you're looking for an alternative to Final Draft, this isn't it. EDIT: Using the application, Fountain is actually not that difficult to learn. It does export to

    I saved my work after every paragraph and when I got back to it it was gone. Decided to try it again, saved adhered almost every sentence, and when I got back to it it was gone again. No matter how many times I save, it always gets deleted. I don't know what's wrong with it but I'm not using it anymore.

    Unable to edit any screenplay longer than 10 pages. Only useful for individual scenes you plan on exporting to a program like final draft.
