Overview
BY screenwriters, FOR screenwriters.

We love using Google Docs for our outlines, bio's, and storylines, but when it comes to screenwriting, collaborating in Google Drive on the film script or screenplay itself, there just weren't any great tools.

So we wrote one: YouMeScript.

* Fast and lag-free even in long scripts.
* No sign-in, ads, or data-grabbing, ever.
* Full real-time collaboration.
* Attractive uncluttered design.
* Import FDX, FOUNTAIN, and plain text.
* Export to PDF, FDX, FOUNTAIN, and more.
* Intelligently auto-formats pasted text.
* Short-cuts for full-speed screen writing.
* Auto-complete lets you move fast.
* Edit remembered Characters / Locations.
* Multiple dictionaries available.
* Personal and per-script dictionaries.
* Intelligent element type selection.
* Auto-correction and auto-capitalization.
* Inline-notes.
* Comments with reply threads.
* Industry standard screenplays format.
* Navigation tools.

Pro upgrade features include:
* Offline working.
* Add images + gif's within the script.
* Alternative-format automatic backups.
* Competition / assignment word-counts.
* Smart links for easier collaboration.
* Basic production-script tools.

...and more every week: YouMeScript's online format means you always have the latest features, no downloads or updates needed.

So...
WHY AREN'T YOU WRITING?!

LISTEN BUDDY, I'M GONNA MURDER SOMEONE. I SPEND HOURS ON THESE SCRIPTS AND I'M SO CONFIDENT ABOUT THIS PROGRAM'S AUTOSAVING ABILITIES. THEN THE PROGRAM STOPS WORKING FOR WHATEVER REASON, I RELOAD THINKING ITS NO BIG DEAL, AND WHAMMO, TEN PAGES ARE GONE. THE SCRIPT WAS FIFTEEN PAGES LONG. THAT'S TWO THIRDS OF MY WORK LOST TO CRAPPY PROGRAMMING. IF YOU'RE WILLING TO ROLL THE DICE ON THIS ONE. SAVE. YOUR WORK.

Great for what it does, but could use more features like tools for script breakdowns and visualizing your script. Collaboration is also great but could use some work just finetuning how it looks.

I am just beginning to write screen plays and this has been perfect for me. I can share it with people to get feed back, the automatic formatting is great, and I love the idea that I can make changes to the script while filming and everyone will have an instant update so we're all on the same page. Plus, the price is in my range. :) Having this program has been a great motivator for me to finally take my writing seriously.

I love this app, it makes teaching screenwriting graceful and efficient. BUT I have one BIG problem with this application. It freezes when updating on a regular basis. A window comes about Connecting to Google, and it is highly frustrating especially in a classroom setting. Is there a way to avoid this problem? Is it a network speed issue? Thank you. Other than that it is a solid 5 stars, but this issue is causing me grief everyday.

A massively underrated script-writing app. The "premium" is priced just right, while giving you enough features without being a general dick to people that don't want to pay to use the app, in the way that *some* apps and utilities lock vital features of their programs behind paywalls. As the description states, it was written by scriptwriters for scriptwriters. I shared this application with my former theatre fundamentals teacher ... she had never heard of it before and she said to me that she would share it with her students in her more advanced theatre classes. Plays. Scripts. Lights... Camera... Action!!

It's amazing! It saves me time, and it makes screenwriting so much easier! However, Whenever it says "Script Error" at the top in red, I have to load the script in another tab so I can write it there. Because theres only a matter of time when it says "connecting to google" which takes forever. But it's nice anyways!

Had issues with it everyday. I kept getting "null" requests and the program would automatically delete changes that I made.

This app has been perfect. I began using it on my laptop but then moved to my Chromebook that I just use for writing. I have written two scripts in the last few weeks and am putting one into production as soon as funding is secured. The fact that I can have these changes readily available to anyone else through Google Drive is an amazing feature to have as well. Thank you for this app that works exactly as it should. It has even caught some of my own mistakes and made me look amazing!

So thankful this exists. I use Google Drive for everything, and I also need a screenwriting program... This is perfect.

My only problem with this is that I cannot get it to save to Google Drive, making it functionally useless to me. Other than that, it's a good app.
