Looks like iPad owning screenwriters will have to wait a little longer before their Final Draft dreams come true. Final Draft, Inc. just sent out an email blast informing customers that the product has been delayed to an unspecified release date. Read the full email below:
FINAL DRAFT MOBILE APP
In order to integrate with future Final Draft products, we’ve redefined the development roadmap of our Final Draft Mobile app. As a result, the app will be released at a later date
The Final Draft Mobile app for iOS will augment the overall Final Draft user experience, providing our community a seamless creative work flow between the Final Draft desktop client, Final Draft Mobile, and future Final Draft services.
This strategic change in the product’s development will ensure that the Final Draft Mobile app can evolve in a way that will integrate with future Final Draft services and products, such as Final Draft Connect online services, which will provide storage, sharing, versioning and real–time collaboration.
We as a company understand that Final Draft Mobile is highly anticipated, but we know that it is just as important to carefully consider what gets to market as when.
The company is now accepting applications for the Final Draft Mobile app product usability team. If you are interested in this customer participation program, please click here.
Naturally, this will come as a disappointment to those who’ve been holding out, but hopefully this means a better, more feature-rich, bullet-proof app is coming…eventually. As you can see above, they included a link at the bottom of their email, but it appears to be the same link as the one from previous email blast.
