About the Weekend Read App

Developer's Description

“Staggeringly useful.” - Dan Etheridge, producer of Veronica Mars and Carrie Diaries

Weekend Read makes reading screenplays on the iPhone delightful, giving users an optimized view that takes best advantage of your retina screen. You'll never squint-and-pinch to read a script again.

Whether you're starting with a PDF or a native file like Final Draft or Fountain, Weekend Read makes it look great, with a choice of fonts, sizes and Dark Mode for night reading.

Created by screenwriter John August and the team behind the award-winning Highland, Weekend Read has Hollywood talking.

"Weekend Read started as an app I didn't know I needed, and quickly became an app I can't live without. Weekend Read keeps you on top of your reading pile, not buried under it. It's seriously amazing."
- Rawson Thurber, writer-director
(Dodgeball, We're The Millers)

"This is the perfect solution I've been fantasizing about - it makes reading scripts (or anything) on the iPhone not just tolerable, not just painless, but actually a pleasure!"
- David Wain, writer/director/EP
(Childrens Hospital, Role Models)

Weekend Read also supports text and Markdown files, making it a perfect offline reference for notes.

• Optimized for reading on the iPhone
• Four fonts and five sizes to choose from

About This Resource

"Pro Filmmaker Apps" is a curated database that can help you get a job done a little better or a little faster. This is a regularly updated resource of hundreds of mobile, tablet, watch, and desktop apps. We only include apps made for and used by film, television, and digital media professionals. Originally on FWDlabs.com — now also at ProFilmmakerApps.com.

FILMCAST"FWD:labs carries the most complete listing of linked professional apps I know besides of the fragmented Android Market (google play) and the iPhone App Store. I suspect it is a tenuous work to compile and link all proven working apps and much more your site offers. I thank you for sharing such complete list of iPhone and android apps for the cinematographer and the entertainment industry in general. I could not pass the opportunity let know my readers about your meticulous resource."

Directors Notes"I thought [FWD:labs] had put together a useful list when I saw it last year, but that was nothing compared to now. If you're a filmmaker and looking for a little portable help in pre/production/post then chances are you'll find it in the [Pro Filmmaker Apps]. I know I can be a little iPhone-centric when it comes to these things, but you’ll be pleased to know the list is completely platform agnostic."
