The best mobile screenplay reader just got more mobile: FDX Reader for iPhone

Back in May, I told you about FDX Reader. Recently, Quote-Unquote Apps has released an update to their fantastic screenplay reader, making it both more mobile and less expensive. Developed along with screenwriter John August, it is currently the only app on the App Store that will read Final Draft screenplay files natively.

While many apps can read PDFs, script readers don’t always have access to a PDF version or the time to make one. FDX Reader allows them to read the Final Draft formatted script in a convenient and easy-to-use reader. Scripts can be imported by using “Open In…” with an app such as Mail or Dropbox or by using iTunes file sync.

Delivering this functionality to a reader’s pocket only makes sense. According to the website, “FDX Reader was redesigned from the ground up for a superior reading experience on the smaller screen.” Portrait and Landscape views are great for quick access to a script, or getting a few pages knocked out on the bus, the plane, the back of your limo, or even your morning run.

Check out the other videos on the site for more information.

If you already own FDX Reader, the app is now universal, so log into the App Store with your iPhone or iPod Touch to download it at no additional charge. If you haven’t picked it up yet, click the app store link below to take advantage of its new lower price of $4.99.
