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 as public beta primarily to seek feedback from the public. We test every beta release of Scrite, but we cannot guarantee that it is production ready as yet. 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 interested to check out Scrite, please feel free to download and please provide feedback.
