This app does not support .fdr, which is the extension of files created with versions of Final Draft prior to FD8. So, while the developer expresses their excitement about embracing .fdx (the FD8 file extension), they do NOT indicate that this means that FD7 users are about to buy a product they CANNOT use.

Further, on their product forum, Black Mana basically tells complaining FD7 customers, "tough luck." They refuse to provide refunds and indicate that Apple will not allow a refund. However, since the product does not perform as reasonably expected, FD7 customers should be able to secure a refund by going to their purchase history and clicking "report a problem." They can then click the "report a problem" link that will appear next to the app's name and be given a screen to describe the problem. Then, in a few days, Apple should arrange the refund.

I spent $7.99 on the product thinking I'd be able to import my scripts and work on them on the fly and then re-import them back to my FD7. Of course, I cannot do this as Screenplay does not support .fdr. I see that the price has dropped to $4.99. And I'm sure that's a bargain if you use FD8. But for those who are not planning to buy the FD upgrade anytime soon, BEWARE... This app will not work for you. The developer doesn't seem to want to play fair and inform people of this, but I think screenwriters get reamed enough without Black Mana adding to the colonic assault.

UPDATE: I posted a similar message on Black Mana's forum so that other customers could get a refund. My post was EDITED so that it said nothing and I was permanently banned.

Black Mana clearly does not want FD7 users to be aware that this app will be useless to them and they do not want them to be able to get a refund. This is just BAD BUSINESS.

I hope someone at Black Mana will realize that treating potential customers unfairly is not the way to make money and either add support for .fdr or indicate in the product description that FD7 is not supported.

A Nice Clean Script App!

So far I've been using this to edit scripts I've imported from Final Draft and it's worked great. It's not fancy but, more importantly, it's very clean and well organized. I find it laughable that the person who complains that the app won't support the Final Draft 7 format won't pony up the rubles for the FD8 upgrade? Are you just planning on never upgrading while FD keeps forging ahead? FD8 is far superior and if you plan on working seriously, you ought to invest the whopping $99 for the upgrade. No charge for this advice either! The reason I mention that is because it's sort of unfair to bash an app for those reasons, especially when it's actually a very good one. Nothing's perfect. Just deal with it and upgrade.

I had contacted them a few weeks ago and said they are planning an iPad version. Not sure when but I hope that's still the case. I recommend this app, highly!

5/5 stars
Another home run!

I've tested this little app out with all the exporting needs I need and it's met them all. Scripting has never been easier! Worth the price tag and will be even more awesome if it comes out for the iPad! Thanks for creating such a wonderful simple ease of use app guys.
