I’ve been doing my screenwriting in Fountain for about 2 years now, and I’ve used Slugline on my Mac for a great deal of that work. However, my primary writing device is my iPad. The beauty of Fountain is that you can write in any word-processing app, so the lack of a full-fledged Fountain app for the iPad wasn’t a huge hurdle. But it always felt a bit hobbled. Having used this app for a few hours, I can already say with certainty that this will be my most-used screenwriting app on any platform. Everything that was great about the Mac version is present here: the way the app formats as you type, the clean interface, the easy-to-use outline. And now I have those features on the devices I always have with me, my iPad and iPhone. Well worth the cost.

I used to love this app, but the last update has driven me to insanity and countless hours of therapy. Now when I type blissfully on the iPad version and the genius oozes out on the page, suddenly out of nowhere the curser jumps to the top of the doc, showing only the cover page info, leaving everything else totally blank (I can still type, but will only see what I typed if I return to the doc screen and then open the file again and then after endless scrolling get to return to the place I left off). This bug has dramatically slowed down my work to the point that I gave up on my dream to use my iPad Pro as a laptop replacement. I shall therefore disappointedly return to the old trusty laptop and fire up the more stable version of Slugline there.

I write episodic television and have been wanting to find an app that works well while I’m traveling and need to write. I found this one and thought I would give it a try. Although it seemed to be a good fit at first, I have come to loathe this app. Nearly every five minutes or so, it will close down, deleting the last paragraph or two of what has been written. Not only is it frustrating because I have to go back and rewrite what I just wrote, but it absolutely destroys the flow of writing, taking me out of the moment I was creating and forcing me to push refresh on the mental process, trying to get back into that moment. Not to mention it has no memory recall, so you have to fully write out every character name every time you use it, as opposed to it recalling the name after the first character or two like most other scriptwriting programs. not a fan.

Title says it all. Fantastic app. Really I couldnt ask for more in terms of functionality. It is simple, straightforward and doesn’t disturb you from what you should be doing; writing without distractions. However my app must randomly quit about every 10 minutes or so. I am running it on iPad OS on my iPad Air 2. I do not see any reasons for the system requirements to be too high for it to manage given no other apps are open so must be an issue with the software. If they fix this it will be an easy 5 star for me, as well as recommendation for all my screenwriting friends. As it stands right now its failing on its basic job of giving you an enjoyable experience writing.

I wanted to use Slugline to pick up Highland 2 files when I was on the go. Slugline can’t handle the formatting. It also lost 45 minutes of work when I backed out of the file with no cell service. Unacceptable flaw from the distant past. I asked for a refund through the website and haven’t received a single word of response. For an app that costs $20, you’re better off finding another alternative. I’ve returned to copying my fountain text to Things 3 and writing there. It’s a pain but less so than using Slugline. Can’t recommend. Not answering customers is simply terrible customer service. Give your money to someone else.
