Developer's Description

Write movie and TV scripts, stage plays, and new media with Final Draft – the entertainment industry-standard application that combines powerful word processing with professional script formatting.

“Final Draft makes it possible to simply imagine the movie in script form.” - Tom Hanks — Writer / Director / Producer / Academy Award®-winner

There is no need to learn about script formatting rules – Final Draft automatically formats your script to industry standards as you write.

Final Draft includes dozens of powerful story tools that let you write screenplays, stage plays, musicals, TV sitcoms, TV dramas, and even video games. Final Draft is used daily by the entertainment industry’s top screenwriters, playwrights, TV writers, and producers. Both screenwriting Oscars® were won by Final Draft users this year.

Works seamlessly with the new Final Draft Writer app for iPad (sold separately).

"FWD:labs carries the most complete listing of linked professional apps I know besides of the fragmented Android Market (google play) and the iPhone App Store. I suspect it is a tenuous work to compile and link all proven working apps and much more your site offers. I thank you for sharing such complete list of iPhone and android apps for the cinematographer and the entertainment industry in general. I could not pass the opportunity let know my readers about your meticulous resource."

"[R]idiculously useful compendium"
Directors Notes
"I thought [FWD:labs] had put together a useful list when I saw it last year, but that was nothing compared to now. If you're a filmmaker and looking for a little portable help in pre/production/post then chances are you'll find it in the Apps for Cinema Artists. I know I can be a little iPhone-centric when it comes to these things, but you’ll be pleased to know the list is completely platform agnostic."
Directors Notes
Pretty much every iPhone or Android App you'll ever need/want if you're a filmmaker
