Phill Barron, UK based scriptwriter, wrote two reviews of Fade In based on his experience of the software. His aim was to write his scripts on different platforms – in his case, Windows and Android phone – and the first review tells the good and the bad of Fade In as a multi-platform script writing software. According to the review, Fade In seems to perform nicely on-the-move script editing with different devices. His second review is about the positive feedback from the developer of Fade In regarding problems he mentioned in the first review.
