Nellie is a screenplay editor and formatter for iOS. There are lots of screenwriting apps for iOS, but Nellie is the simplest. Nellie runs on Apple devices that support iOS 11.2 or later.
You write your screenplays in plain text. Nellie formats your screenplays into PDF files for US Letter size paper. Because plain text is an ISO standard, human-readable, non-proprietary format, your files will not become obsolete. Your source material is future proof.
Nellie supports the Basic Latin and Latin Supplement ranges of Unicode. This means that Nellie supports Western European languages only.
Easy To Use
You do only the work you have to do: you provide the content. Nellie does the formatting for you. You do not even need to know how to format screenplays.
Nellie’s custom formatter creates PDFs with no extraneous metadata: no vanity messages from third-party software and no unique identifiers that can be used to identify you. Nellie embeds the Open Source Courier Prime typeface into PDFs.
Write In Fountain
Nellie recognizes a restricted subset of the Fountain markup language. Nellie documents are understood by all Fountain-based editors and formatters, but Nellie itself does not recognize dual dialogue, lyrics, boneyard text, synopses, or outlines.
Share Your Work
Nellie works with one persistent document at a time. You can import and export your screenplays to and from your iCloud drive. You can include your screenplays in mail and text messages. You can pass your screenplays to others via AirDrop.
