One of the considerably better screenwriting apps and even considerably free-er... Awesome

Really solid, better than what most people use (eh, Word). Feature-rich, and (like most software of this sort) is much more suited to screenwriters than playwrights.

Not perfect yet, but I'm optimistic. Give it a try! _

I use Celtx almost daily -- the developers aggressively squash bugs and it's definitely a worthy contender if you aren't being forced by industry collaborators to use Final Draft.

Current version is .996 and it's MUCH better than the year-ago version commented on below.

i really, really like this app. in fact, i tried to make the switch from final draft. even struggled through a big collaborative project in it. i love the open-sourcedness for one thing. but in putting in all of these wonderful pre-pro features... they spent too little time on the actual writing & formatting part or the process. i found script writing to be tedious, sometimes painful, and copy/paste to be utterly unpredictable. i hear they've ironed out some bugs in the latest but i've only peeked, but i still feel like i'm walking on a balance beam when i use it. so i'm still tethered to final draft... for now.
