DubScript is a simple, feature-packed screenplay editor for film or TV.

DISPLAYS FOUR SCRIPT FORMATS: Fountain 1.x, Final Draft (.fdx), Trelby, and CeltX (.html)
SAVES: Fountain, PDF, Final Draft (FDX), or HTML.

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

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

Screenplay files are stored right on your device in local storage. No cloud or Internet connection required. But you can also open your scripts from Internet apps like email, Gmail, Drive, DropBox, or other cloud services. And after you've finished writing, tapping the Share button sends off your new version to yourself or others via Internet apps and cloud services.

SO WHAT'S FOUNTAIN?

Fountain is 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? Well, check out this video from screenwriter John August (unaffiliated with DubScript, BTW) who helped create the Fountain standard: http://www.youtube.com/embed/lElhyw3WGxo

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

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

• Switch to a compact soft keyboard. Better yet, use a Bluetooth hard keyboard

    I have final draft 7 files on my PC that are saved to Google Drive. I tried accessing them on my Nexus 5 but the app says it is not supported.

    I use this on my Nexus 7 as well as a Ruby program called textplay on my PC for writing with Fountain. Probably not best for phones, but great for tablets.

    This app really makes screenwriting simple. You can quickly gets your words and thoughts and characters out and then swipe over and see what it looks like formatted like a real screenplay. This app is the best screenwriting app in android, especially for begginers. Dubscript is the future of screenwriting.

    This app is great, especially for newbie screenwriters like me. The only problem is, I can't find how to export the file. Any suggestions?

    Still only 4 stars because of ads. You can get rid of them but only by subscription. I would like the option of buy to own so I can be ad free - whenever I choose to use software. Please consider making this buy to own as you would definitely get a purchase from me. Also could we have better cloud support?
