Description

“Staggeringly useful.” - Dan Etheridge, producer of Veronica Mars and Carrie Diaries Weekend Read makes reading screenplays on the iPhone delightful, giving users an optimized view that takes best advantage of your retina screen. You'll never squint-and-pinch to read a script again. Whether you're starting with a PDF or a native file like Final Draft or Fountain, Weekend Read makes it look great, with a choice of fonts, sizes and Dark Mode for night reading. Created by screenwriter John August and the team behind the award-winning Highland, Weekend Read has Hollywood talking. "With Weekend Read, John August and his crafty elves have taken something that was the worst thing, namely reading scripts on a mobile device, and turned it into the best thing. I find it more pleasant to read a script in Weekend Read on my 4-inch iPhone screen than to read a PDF in proper screenplay format on my iPad. I even prefer it to reading full-sized paper scripts." - Rian Johnson, writer-director (Brick, Looper, The Brothers Bloom) "Weekend Read started as an app I didn't know I needed, and quickly became an app I can't live without. Weekend Read keeps you on top of your reading pile, not buried under it. It's seriously amazing." - Rawson Thurber, writer-director (Dodgeball, We're The Millers) "This is the perfect solution I've been fantasizing about - it makes reading scripts (or anything) on the iPhone not just tolerable, not just painless, but actually a pleasure!" - David Wain, writer/director/EP (Childrens Hospital, Role Models) Weekend Read also supports text and Markdown files, making it a perfect offline reference for notes. Features: • Optimized for reading on the iPhone • Four fonts and five sizes to choose from • Easily import files from Mail, Dropbox, and the web • Page Jumper lets you zip through long documents • For Your Consideration: Featured Writers and Shows • Dark Mode for night reading

  • Indispensable but killer bugs

    Reason alone to be on iOS if you’re in the film industry. Only problem is there are some longstanding bugs that haven’t been fixed: 1, it doesn’t save your place in a script. This is a feature that WR is supposed to have, but I haven’t seen it work. 2, numbers often disappear and instead show up as blanks. For example a character’s age will often show up as ( ) instead of as (21).
  • None of latest updates actually work

    None of the latest updates work for my app and it keeps going back to page 1 in normal view every time I reopen the app or a script that I’m already several pages in to.
  • Great concept

    PDFs are a plague in a cell phone world. When will they die? We use screens of different sizes not pages printed in a certain format. Wish this app came out ages ago
  • Doesn’t work

    I had zero problems with this app. Until I paid for it. Now it keeps shutting down every time I try opening a file.
  • Needs A Larger Script Browsing Library

    This app is great! Very few bugs that I notice, but this app could be a hundred times better if they had a larger script library, so we don’t have to have third party script websites. The features with ‘email,’ ‘clipboard,’ should stay, but if the library of in-app scripts were to be larger than this would be 5 stars!
  • I’m with it!

    I really don’t see how it could operate any better.

    Overall the best script-reading app ever. Moves fluid and simply through scripts, the best digital reading experience I've had. One small bug that bothers me; dialogue that runs over a page break will lose proper formatting on the second page. Also important is formatting for simultaneous dialogue. Would also love it to save the page in normal pdf view. Small improvements could make this truly remarkable.

    Sometimes I see an app and feel like it’s a miracle that it exists. That’s the way Weekend Read makes me feel. Thank you.

    I’m grateful that the app is still being maintained. Have used it for years and recently the full screen function got buggy (prolly due to iPhone X or something). I reached out via the website, someone replied, then fixed it in a few weeks, yay! Thank you!!
