**Users with phones that support iOS 7 should try Weekend Read instead. It does everything FDX Reader does and more.**

Read screenplays in their native format with FDX Reader -- the first Final Draft reader designed for both iPhone and iPad.
With Dropbox support, you have on-the-go access to all your drafts. Ideal for writing partners, letting you pass scripts back and forth without saving a .pdf first.

It's not an editor. Our app is a reader, much like iBooks or the Kindle app. It shows you the script and makes it look nice.


* Universal app: both iPhone and iPad.
* Five font sizes.
* Optimized font for reading on the iPhone.
* Easy import from Mail, Dropbox or iTunes.
* Portrait and landscape modes.
* Quick jump to any page.
* Scene numbers.
* Forced page breaks and act breaks.
* Library to keep track of how far you've read.

Check the screenshots for a sense of the UI, and the differences between the iPad and iPhone layouts.


"Loving this app. Love the page color and graphics. Makes me want to go write something. Beautiful work." -- J.J. Abrams

"I throw all my active script files into Dropbox already, so FDX Reader is incredibly convenient. For me, two steps have been eliminated: conversion to PDF and syncing those files to my iPad. My active scripts will always be available now. I read a hundred scripts this staffing season, and they were all PDFs. Sure, I'm able to read them on my iPad, but without the ability to change type-size, I find the print is slightly too small for me to be totally happy. Life would've been much better if I'd had this app." -- Rob Thomas, creator of Veronica Mars, Cupid and Party Down


It's not for everybody. Unless you're working with Final Draft files all the time, you won't have much use for it.

But if you need it, you'll probably love it.
