DubScript Screenplay Writer for Android™

Submitted by Ron on Thu, 07/21/2011 - 17:04


DubScript is an easy-to-use, feature-packed screenplay editor for Android phones and tablets. It displays four script formats:

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

DubScript is also a screenplay writing app featuring the Fountain markup method, which doesn't make you worry about margins and special formatting as you write. You can save your script as Fountain, Final Draft, HTML, and PDF (KitKat+).

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

Tip: B45 includes Courier Prime for CyanogenMod's theme engine

Running a recent version of CyanogenMod 11 on your device? As of b45 (8-8-14), DubScript packages the Courier Prime Font to be used system wide across Android! Courier Prime is a free font for screenplays graciously released by Quote-Unquote apps under the OFL license.

Once you install DubScript on your CyanogenMod device, go to Settings, then Themes, and then Font. It's that easy to set the Courier Prime font as a default in nearly every Android app.

B45 is UP! Lots of new stuff!

What's New

Winding down three years of beta development, we now have a great editor for Fountain 1.1, Final Draft import/export, PDF, cloud printing, and more. This version just adds some fit and finish:
• Rotation lock respected (thanks, MA!)
• Improvements to text search box
• Future compatibility for "L" Preview
• Minor bug fixes (code refactoring, improved scrolling, etc.)
Also, app size has slimmed down 10% in the last 2 releases! Keep up the terrific reviews and help spread the word!
