Popular screenwriting tool Final Draft is finally making its way to the iPhone and iPad. The company confirmed last year that it was working on a companion iPad and iPhone application, and that app is now close to being finished. While the company has not announced an exact date for launch, a recent email sent to subscribers points to a Spring 2011 debut for its iPad and presumably iPhone version.
According to Final Draft's Facebook page, the iOS app will be compatible with version 8 FDX files and will support two-way transfer so that you can easily move your script from your iOS to your desktop and back. While traveling, the tool will let you edit script files and add notes using your iOS device. It will be perfect for those on-the-go moments of inspiration.
Budding screenwriters should head over to Final Draft's website and sign up for its iPad alerts so that you can be the first to snag this version when it debuts.
