Developer's Description

Whether you are writing an entire novel, a short story, or even articles for submission to magazines, Manuscript for iPad takes care of the details and lets you focus on writing. This all-in-one writing app will take you from pitch to a publication ready document, in four easy steps:

1. Pitch - Begin with a several sentences long description of your manuscript’s main idea.

2. Synopsis - Create a longer description that is based on your manuscripts’ major plot developments.

3. Chapter Outline - Create empty chapters and outline them according to your synopsis.

4. With the detail from your pitch, synopsis, and chapter outlines, you begin to write the content of each chapter.

"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
