What font should I use?
For screenplay documents, it is recommended to use a screenplay-specific Courier font. These can be found on the Download page under "Extras".
Does it work with Final Draft files?
Indeed it does. The software can import and export the latest Final Draft .fdx format with ease. Choose File > Import > Final Draft (.fdx). To save your screenplay as a Final Draft .fdx file, use File > Export. (For older versions of Final Draft, such as FD 7 and earlier, you'll need to export to RTF first, then import that into the application.)

Fade In Mobile
What is Fade In Mobile?
Fade In Mobile is a separate app for iOS (iPhone/iPad) and Android available for purchase ($4.99 USD; there's also a free version to try out called Fade In Mobile Free). While it doesn't provide the full range of features of Fade In Professional Screenwriting Software, Fade In Mobile does offer basic viewing and editing functionality for reading, writing, and reviewing on the go.
Where can I get it?
What's the difference between Fade In Mobile and Fade In Mobile Free?
Fade In Mobile Free is essentially a trial or demo of the full, paid version of Fade In Mobile. A couple of features are absent in the free version such as editing imported screenplays and the capability to work on more than one screenplay at once. If you try Fade In Mobile Free, like how it works, and plan to use it with any real writing projects, you're going to want to upgrade to the full version of Fade In Mobile.
How do I sync to Fade In Mobile?
First you'll need a free Dropbox account. Then you'll need to enter your Dropbox account information (email and password) into Fade In Mobile for a one-time authorization.
Note that your .fadein files are stored in a "Fade In" subfolder of your Dropbox account.
