Pros: I love the following:

- the ability to change formats (from novel to screenplay to graphic novel to stage play) - this is the most unbelievable benefit of Celtx

- a one-stop shop for story development

- the ability to storyboard your story FIRST before writing the screenplay

- the addition of graphic novel format

- the addition of GEM, to write and develop stories for gamers

- the self-reassurance that you get when you purchase the studio edition; now, you are not just JOE, you are JOE STUDIOS!

- having all your files in the cloud per project

Cons: Celtx is powerful for teamwork and collaboration, but their focus is NOT on individuals. You can use it for screenwriting and gaming, but the cost to you as an individual is unwarranted because you can't get a stripped-down version, you have to get the same package that entire TEAMS purchase, which can seem unfair to individuals.

Overall: Story Management in one place and having all assets in one place in the cloud.

Pros: It can be used for many more things than only to write scripts. For example, I have used it to store song lyrics by the artists, or cooking recipes, notes, my personal diary, etc. It is very versatile. Plus, it is very easy to use and doesn't consume to much RAM.

Cons: I would say that the worst part is that you cannot add any color or format to the texts, so you are strictly attached to one single "output" that cannot be modified.

Overall: Many, actually the movie script function is the one that I use the less. Thanks to how Celtx is structured and how the texts are written I have discovered many other uses such as writing my personal diary. Instead of writing my personal feelings and thoughts on the diary and briefly describe the day, I write what has happened more or less like a script and also my thoughts on a certain issue inside brackets or things like that. That allows me to make a more accurate picture of my day in all its aspects. Also, it can be used to write song lyrics and cooking recipes, thanks to the how they look at the end.

The most amazing screenwriting application.

Pros: The software is really easy to use once you get used to the shortcut keys. It's like working magic while writing your screenplay and the output is on point. I can export my screenplay as pdf as well as txt for final draft.

Cons: The formatting options are really low. I can't change font type, font size, and spacing between the sentences.

The best software for scriptwriting. The scriptwriter will feel that has a friend.

Pros: It's free and it has versions for windows, mac OS X and Linux. On line with text processor, it counts with spelling checker that autocompletes during the scriptwriting.

Cons: It's needed to be on line for save the project in PDF. And other of the failures that i see is that just is available en english. Any scriptwriter from other language can find it confuse.

Pros: Ease of use within the production environment as well as the collaboration aspect of the software within work groups.

Cons: I don't like the cloud-based aspect of the formatting, because I do a ton of my writing offline I would like my things to live offline as well as online. Not quite positive if its due to versioninig.

Overall: I really enjoy using this software, due to its simplicity and intuitivness. I also like the storyboard and notes view of getting all your scenes worked out in advance of the actual writing.

Pros: Celtx in my opinion is sufficiently easier to use than Final Draft (not a knock on Final Draft). Both are great. Celtx is just more user friendly.

Cons: Sometimes the margins are set wrong and the page number won't show when you export to PDF or you print.

Script writing and formatting made easy.

Pros: If you've ever written a script, be it for a film, tv show, comedy skit, short video, etc, you know how import getting the format correct is. It helps actors read, gives space for people to take notes, is clean and familiar, and most import...it's the industry standard. You can try to fake it in basic word processing software, but you will never get it just right. Celtx helps you there immensely. Other features such as the Index Cards, character notes, etc, they really help you when trying to revise your script. It's great for a creative.

Cons: The only issue...Final Draft is still the standard. So if you want to share a work in progress, you might run into some issues with writers and producers who prefer the older ways. Also, if you come from that background, you may need to spend some time brushing up on the new ways to get things done in Celtx.

Overall: It's great for writing. The cloud service is a nice option!

Pros: Well, it's great that they offer a free version and multiple paid options. The software is easy to use and doesn't bother with a lot of unnecessary "bells and whistles." I feel like the simplicity of the software helps me focus on the content.

Cons: Sometime the interface is annoying, especially when trying to switch between formats, e.g., scene direction vs. dialogue.

Overall: Easy of use, functionality, value.

Pros: Celtx is pretty intuitive to use and relatively easy to figure out, even for someone doing screenwriting for the first time. Looks professional, so you don't have to waste time on figuring out formatting, and just focus on writing.

Cons: The one issue I've run into is Celtx requiring internet connection to export to pdf.

The program very friendly. Has all the necessary utilities and does not limit writers.

Pros: It has many functionality. you can do literary script, technical script, storyboard, take into account even the smallest details, such as visual effects

Cons: It has many production design elements that are far from confusing to the writer. You must be connected to the internet to save your project in PDF
