Coinciding with the long-awaited Final Draft Writer app for iPad finally making its debut at a discounted price until the end of September, The Writers Store is offering its Final Draft 8 Platinum Edition Package (Final Draft 8 plus a collection of screenwriting extras) for $169 -- that's a 32% savings off the Final Draft 8 sticker price alone. For current Final Draft users looking to upgrade, The Writers Store is offering Final Draft 8 upgrades for $59, a 40% savings. The discounts at The Writers Store end on Sept. 30, so don't miss out if you've been considering the switch to Final Draft or upgrading to Final Draft 8.
The screenwriting extras -- or more accurately, the Screenwriter Starter Package -- that The Writers Store bundles with Final Draft 8 in its Platinum Edition Package will likely only appeal to customers completely new to screenwriting. For the majority of potential new customers that already use Celtx or any number of screenwriting applications that are either free or cost under $50, The Writers Store discount on the Final Draft 8 sticker price of $249.95 alone may provide enough savings to consider making the leap to the industry standard application.
Also, don't forget: the Final Draft Writer app for iPad is now available at the App Store for $29.99, but only until Sept. 30 as well, when the price goes up to $49.99.
