“Designed for writers of film, TV, and online scripted projects, DubScript is an industry-strength, open-standard screenplay editor with pro features.
Read Final Draft (.fdx) or Fountain script formats and edit in plain-text. Then output your auto-formatted screenplay to print, PDF, and .fdx.
NEW: Built-in Wellness Exam auto-scan for potential Fountain/format issues, screenplay “clams”, red flags, etc.
NEW: Markdown text-format support (just open or save files ending in “.md”)
Plain-text in. Screenplay out.
Create a new script and write naturally in the free-flowing plain-text editor — without the “screenplay software formatting stuff” getting in your way. Don’t break your writing flow to manually format or indent characters, slug lines, parentheticals, or action. Write uninterrupted– scenes start with INT. or EXT, capitalize CHARACTER names, double-space between dialog.
In other words, make your screenplay look “screenplayish”. The editor (900+ fonts available) helps with auto-suggestions as you go.
Save direct to your device’s storage- no online connection required. Or save to Drive, Box, and other cloud services.
Finished? With a single swipe, DubScript does the hard formatting for you! Indentation, page breaks, CONT’Ds, page numbering, margins, and text styling appear like magic!
Now you have a proper screenplay. But before you output a PDF or export to .fdx, add a quick title page. It’s just as easy to add scene numbers, side-by-side dialogue, centered text, notes, and page breaks.
“Open” is good. Vendor “lock in” isn’t.
DubScript supports Fountain markup, a popular, open standard for writing scripts in plain-text. This means your screenplay file is fully-compatible with any old plain-text editor. To exchange with other apps, just copy and paste. Or hit the Share button to forward yourself (or your agent) a quick off-device backup via an email or messaging app.
Learn more about Fountain markup at https://fountain.io — including a list of compatible Fountain apps for Mac, iOS, Linux, and Windows.
✓ Easy plain-text format – copy/paste-able and compatible with other apps and text editors ✓ Read Final Draft (.FDX), Trelby, and Fountain. Output to PDF, .FDX, HTML, or printers ✓ Markdown support (plain text files w/name ending in ‘.md”) ✓ Save files to your device, cloud storage, or share with others ✓ 900+ writing fonts for every writing mood and genre. PDF output is always industry standard 12 pt Courier Prime ✓ Built-in Wellness Exam scans for potential Fountain/format issues, screenplay “clams”, red flags, etc ✓ Title page, dual-dialogue, and bold, underline, & italic ✓ Character & slugline auto-suggestion, undo/redo, find/replace, copy/paste, spell-check, auto-complete, keyboard shortcuts, scene numbering, notes, and more ✓ Click-click-click…ding! Typewriter sounds ✓ US Letter & A4 paper sizes ✓ Locally-saved recovery backups ✓ Hear your script spoken out loud ✓ Statistics, scene and character reports ✓ Dialogue browser ✓ Compare drafts ✓ Chromebook & foldable support (requires Android compatibility) ✓ Android 11 ready
Test builds — now available!
Feeling adventurous? The test releases have the newest features and bug fixes. Sign up for the beta program right here in the Play store.
All features in DubScript are fully-enabled with unlimited scripts. Reading mode is ad-free. Should you optionally wish to be a DubScript supporter, you can disable ads & a small “DubScript” message on printed output/PDF. This monthly or annual subscription can be canceled at any time for any reason.

Your Writing Process, Streamlined Jotterpad is a “What You See Is What You Get” (WYSIWYG) Markdown and Fountain editor.
Writing in syntax is convenient as it allows you to format your work, while sparing you from the tedium of constantly clicking and highlighting. However, it can be unintuitive. Moreover, syntax doesn’t let you see what the final outcome of your work looks like.
With JotterPad, you can get the best of both worlds. Write in syntax if you’d like. You can see the final version of your work instantly while editing. Alternatively, write as you would and click to format your work as needed. You can instantly convert your work into rich text or other professional, industry-accepted open formats.
Let your ideas & writing flow unhindered. Ready your articles, essay drafts, and novels for publishing.
Write Anywhere, Anytime. JotterPad offers automatic sync and offline capability. Sync all your files on Google Drive, Dropbox and Microsoft OneDrive across all devices, such as iOS, Mac, Android and Web.
Continue writing anywhere, even if you’re offline and using our web app. JotterPad syncs your work to an unlimited cloud service when you are back online.
Give Your Editorial Content the Visual Polish it Needs Find the exact image you need to express your thoughts, ideas and opinions. Access millions of high-resolution, editorial images on Unsplash and incorporate them with ease into your work with JotterPad.
Give your writing that extra oomph, simply because you can.
Get Your Work Out There With JotterPad, there is no unnecessary drama. Export your written work into PDF, HTML, rich text, Final Draft, Fountain and Markdown without messing up… the only drama you need is the drama you’ve written about in your stories.
Do you post frequently on online platforms? You can now instantly publish whatever you’ve written on JotterPad to Tumblr, WordPress and Ghost in the exact format you’ve written it in, without having to worry.
Version Control You’ll never have to panic again. JotterPad’s Version Control automatically backs up your work as you write. Put your mind at ease and write with assurance. Freely explore every “WHAT IF”s you might have in your writing without worrying about losing previous versions of your drafts again.
The Only Writing Assistant You’ll Need The burden of a writer can be a heavy one. Let us help you lighten your load. JotterPad offers many useful features such as:

The Brainstormer is a story/idea generator designed to challenge you. It’s purpose is to help you think in new ways and give you the push that leads to great narratives. Your next big idea is not going to come to you handed on a silver platter. It takes work and effort and innovative thinking to create the masterpiece. But the Brainstormer can give you the spark! “Kindling”, as we say, “for the creative mind”.
When you spin the Brainstormer, you’ll be presented with three terms or phrases. The inner wheel gives you the conflict. The middle wheel gives you the style or setting. The outer wheel gives you the subject. Combined, they are the building blocks for a hit film, epic novel, or mind-blowing comic. Not every combination will give you that spark. But every word in every wheel has been selected with care and purpose to maximize creative thinking. If you approach the Brainstormer with a “what if?” attitude, you’ll find powerful inspiration with every spin. So what are you waiting for? Time’s a wasting! Try it! You’ll thank me later.
“The Brainstormer provides a cornucopia of ideas for creative minds!” – Kelly Hodgkins, Tuaw.com
“Every single spin of this Brainstormer wheel by Andrew Bosley suggests an entire short story or comic book to me. It’s pure money. – David Somerville, Creative Director
“No, it’s not going to write your story for you, but it’s going to inspire you on your happily-ever-after way!” – Alexis Monson, Brit + Co”
