DubScript Screenplay Writer for Android™

Get it on Google Play

"...great for beginning screenwriters... full-featured [and] good-looking..."
--New York Times

DubScript is an easy, powerful screenplay editor for Android phones and tablets featuring Fountain markup, which lets you write in plain text without worrying about margins, indenting, and other usual "screenwriting software" stuff that can get in your way.

You can save your script as Fountain plain text, Final Draft .FDX, HTML, and PDF (KitKat+).

DubScript reads FOUR screenplay file formats:

  • .fountain, .txt, or .spmd using "Fountain" screenplay markup rules
  • .fdx (Final Draft) movie screenplay-formatted scripts
  • .trelby used by the free, open-source Trelby screenplay software
  • .html exported by the free, open-source CeltX screenplay software

Plus, share your Fountain script with others via email, Google Drive, and more. Details below!

1.0 RC23 Heads To Beta!

After two months, a new build has just hit the Beta Channel! It has exciting improvements including

✓ New! Compare Scripts - view changes between drafts!
✓ More fit & finish
✓ Uses less memory
✓ Fixed many bugs
✓ Built with latest tools & libraries

Hopefully this will address the rare issue described in this thread which occurred in some unusual configurations. Other bugs were hopefully squashed, so if you've experienced any issues lately, give the beta a shot.

Happy Writing!

RC12 -- Gradual Rollout to Production

So with no bug reports from the beta channel over the last few days, RC12 is going to start making its way to the main distribution production channel... starting with 5% of the users.

This is the first major non-testing production update in over a year, so the rollout is being done carefully-- slowly and incrementally.

If there are still no problems reported, RC12 will be expanded to more published users until 100% is reached.

Update Jan 3 -- No issues reported, so rolling out to 10% of users.
Update Jan 5 -- No issues or crashes reported... will roll out to 20% at end of day.
Update Jan 7-- Amazing-- there hasn't been a single crash report (yet). Maybe pushing our luck here, but if there are still no problems we'll will go to a 50% rollout! (Update to update: We're at 50%!)
Update Jan 12-- Although there are to-date no crash reports yet, there has been a single report of an issue in the review section on the Play Store. The person was invited to explain the problem further in the forum for more analysis, help, and hopefully a resolution, but so far no response. If they don't show up up in the next day or so, the assumption will be they resolved the problem themselves, and we'll move the rollout up to 100%, as this was the only report of any problem on any device so far.
Update Jan 13-- No further word from this one user. Thousands of people have already migrated to the new version without any reported crashes, so if nothing new is reported in the next few hours, we'll go to 100% tomorrow.
Update Jan 15-- It's been six days without any further response from the user, and zero other reports of bugs or crashes. So Time to go to 100%!!

Enjoy and Happy New Year!
