Really amazing app.
I am so glad I spent the 35 dollars on this app. It’s a really, really fantastic piece of software. And yes, the formatting DOES work. It’s a little odd initially, but after spending an hour with the app it was clear to me that I had a winner. I’ve used slugine (a fine app, but not nearly as nice as this one), Fade In, Final Draft, and Celtx. I can definitively say that logline is by the far the best of the group.
A nice idea, but it doesn’t really work
The program is supposed to recognize the elements you are trying to write and then format them for you as you go. Great in theory, but it has to actually work. I find myself constantly going back to correct the formatting. Really basic stuff, like transitioning from writing action to dialogue is still problematic. They have a lot more work to do before this is a viable alternative to the more widely used software.
Excellent, but room for improvement
Very clean, easy-to-use interface. Exactly the outliner I needed to write screenplays. Just hope the developer comes through with the promised upgrades because it sill needs some features to make it a great app. Thanks.
Great simplified screenwriting!
I agree with all the positive reviews so far. I started using the demo a few weeks before I bought it. It didn't take long before I was hooked. I've tried all sorts of other screenwriting software before but nothing ever felt right. The .Fountain format is like magic. I recommend visiting www.fountain.io and checking out information on writing in Fountain though. That was a huge help. I have to say, the main reason I went with Logline over the competition is that the spell checking happens instantly. Similar to texting on an iPhone. I'm a pretty messy typer so it's great to have it fix the little typos automatically without me having to think about it. Writing is just so much faster than in other apps. I also love the visual formatting that it does to breakup the different types of sections like, Outline, synopsis, script, etc. I recommend downloading the demo and trying it out for yourself!
Structural plus Organization of Writing = Outstanding App
I recently purchased LOGLINE and have found it to be more “USER FRIENDLY’ then most Screenwriting programs. I like how you can structure your writing, while writing dialogue. It helps that you can write scene by scene, structure your thoughts and write notes for reminders, concerning that particular scene. Once you have decided to add/subtract dialogue-rewrite, due to wanting to make a change, that will support that particular scene - to help move your scene forward and never having the need to return for corrections. I like how you can export the screenplay to Final Draft. How you can print out outlines, to view how your screenplay is progressing. There are so many advantages with this screenwriting program, compared to others. I feel that once you get started using this product, you will continue using it with a positive influence. I am truly “Thankful” for such an Aggressive Product in Screenwriting. It helps me spend more time doing what research is required, in developing my screenplay, while in production. Give it a try - you will not be Disappointed.
