Final Draft Mobile Reviews


Google drive  SandwichHanisch  4 star

Can we get google drive integration all up in this app??


Woww!!!!!  Tyrhee  5 star



Almost perfect  darkrogue05  4 star

I love this program to death but it keeps freezing whenever I try to use the vocal feature. Hopefully this will be fixed in future upgrades.


Meh  redhourglass18  2 star

My biggest pet peeves about FD is Corrupted files and the inability to transfer screenplays from the app,(when upgrading) to the new phone. Why create an app if the entire focus is on the software only? I lost my first script five times and had to copy it from memory...


:)  OCon2019  4 star

Don’t know how I lived without this app for so long! That being said, I can’t adjust the font which is a problem. And I can’t create a normal text document, which would be helpful.


Great but Crashes  bufflord  5 star

Love this app. They need to work on the crashing problems though.


I don’t know who is giving this 5 stars  metamorphilia  1 star

I tried using the mobile app for 5 minutes and had to stop. I am editing a script that is a modern stage play but everything I’m ADDING in mobile is in standard stage play format for some unknown reason. Tabbing doesn’t guarantee character names or that the different choices (parenthetical, dialogue) will come up. No thanks.


Good App  BlkThor  4 star

Good App. Works well for me.

Dialogue Cont’d disappears in PDF  D. Orang  3 star

This is Otherwise an excellent Screenwriting app on the go, however, it’s extremely frustrating that the parenthesis Cont’d disappears when exported to PDFs and in order for them to show up at all when writing, I have to scroll down every individual pad which is tedious and time consuming.


Not functional on my new iPad.  JWilliamB7  1 star

Input of any sort completely stops working. My finger, the Apple Pencil, and the iOS keyboard are useless. Even a 3rd party Bluetooth. The app freezes and crashes constantly, rendering the app completely useless. I’ve tried reinstalling, rebooting, etc etc. I open the app, loading from iCloud doesn’t work, unless I tap the document 10 times. Then it finally opens. Once open, I get about 3-4 minutes of use before input of any kind stops working. I close the app, reopen, and nothing is fixed. I tried deleting and reinstalling. Didn’t help. Until this is fixed, the app is broken. I’m curious to see if anyone else is having these issues. Otherwise I may have to switch to a different app, which I don’t want to do because I use FD on all of my other devices and iCloud is a godsend.
