For a limited time, all features of Scrite are free to use for registered users. Eventually, there will be a paid version as we move out of beta and launch the 1.0 update.

Our goal is to make writing professionally formatted screenplays accessible to as many writers as possible and the paid version will be in line with this goal. We’ll publish information about this launch ahead of time and beta users will be able to avail a special discount.

Note: This is a beta release. A software is released for public beta primarily to seek feedback from the public. Scrite has undergone reasonably extensive testing internally in alpha stage, but it could still have known or unknown bugs. Please read more about what a beta release means here ( If you wish to have a more stable and complete version, we recommend you to wait until we have a 1.0 release. But if you are one of the early adopters who wants to check out Scrite, please feel free to download and please provide feedback.

macOS will then display a warning dialog box asking you if you are sure about launching the app.

Here you can click on the “Open” button to launch the app. Once macOS registers that the app was launched like this, it allows you to launch the app directly from Spotlight from the next time.
