After Years, I have no regrets. However I've been using Celtx for about 4 years. It's a great software that has allowed me to write and share many great scripts. I'd definitely suggest it for up and coming writers, or even experts. However, yesterday I encountered an issue with my app. I'm not sure if I'm the only one with the issue, but for some reason, the app would crash every time I try to save a script. It seems to only have this issue with the app, and the browser version works fine.
Editing on the app is very stressful. The cursor will randomly jump to another part of the script and you end up typing where you didn't intend. That's probably the most inconvenient part. Also, there is no option to duplicate your script on the app and full version. The app is simply okay to view your script.
Needs improvement The idea is there however the autoprediction is not on the same level as final draft. When I finish dialogue and hit enter it does not always predict the next type correctly (character dialogue etc) then when I go back to edit the whole thing reformats itself for no reason. Very frustrating.
Overall a great app. However, there is a glitch where whenever I place the cursor and press the backspace button, instead of deleting a letter, it copies one or two letters and pastes it in front. For example, if I write "of the" and press backspace, it'll turn into "of thehe". Not sure what causes this.
I downloaded this app because I wanted something on my table for writing screenplays, and this is free. That's the only reason I continue using it. In addition to complaints others have about it, it pays no attention to screenplay formatting rules. I work mostly in landscape mode, and the text stretches all the way to the right margin, regardless of whether I'm typing action or dialogue. Also, I use a detachable keyboard with my tablet, and Celtx does not recognize the right or down arrow. Wherever I touch on the screen is considered the "end" of the document, and pressing the arrow keys will go no further down the document. As I said, it's free, so I use it. I would never pay for something this bad.
Very good All works good and I have used it for a while . When I have had issues , support has helped me out completely! The only thing I don't like is the cost , being a poor, unknown film maker it's kind of an unnecessary cost, but I do really like the website and the app!
