It's time once again for another Final Draft 9 sale. If you are looking to upgrade to Final Draft 9 or purchase the full version, you can save 20% on upgrades, 30% on the academic version, and 32% on the full version if you buy from The Writers Store. But the sale ends today, May 31, 2014, so you don't have much time if you want to take advantage of this sale. If you miss it, you'll just have to wait until Final Draft 9 is on sale again a few months later. Check out the details below and find links to take advantage of the current sale at The Writers Store.
If you're thinking, "Wasn't Final Draft 9 just on sale back in January?" you're right, it was! Every few months, Final Draft goes on sale, so hopefully we're all trained at this point never to pay full price if we're in the market to purchase Final Draft. Of course, several free and less expensive screenwriting apps now exist. I see these Final Draft sales mainly targeted at existing users who have yet to upgrade to the latest version. Final Draft continues to charge a premium for its product as the industry standard, and the software's strengths are essentially matching page counts across various platforms, providing trusted revision tools, and generating reports, tags and exports for production teams and their third-party budgeting and scheduling software.
Check out our earlier post on the release of Final Draft 9 back in January to see a full list of the additional features as well as a series of videos highlighting what's new in this version.
Oh, by the way, the Final Draft Writer app for iPad now lists for $19.99 with full Dropbox integration. Just in case you were curious.
Will you be taking advantage of this Final Draft 9 sale? Have you migrated away from Final Draft to another screenwriting app, or do you use another screenwriting app and don't see the advantage to switching to Final Draft? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
