How screenwriters might use the iPad

From screenwriter and self-confessed geek John August's blog, his take on Apple's new iPad, including:
It should be terrific for reading scripts. Right now, the big Kindle DX does a credible job with screenplays. It’s $489. The iPad is only $10 more, and can handle mail, web, video and a lot more. A few weeks ago, I wrote about reading scripts on laptops turned sideways. The iPad is the elegant version of this solution.


  1. My initial reaction when I saw the Apple iPad was confusion. What functionality does this device offer over and above the Apple iPhone? And what market is Apple aiming this device at?

  2. I thought they might use it to lean on while writing like the yellow pages, not actually buy the thing.

  3. Yeah, I think screenwriters wealthy enough to buy a device just to read scripts on are pretty much a niche market.

  4. Great post… Great info on bounce rates… I’ll have to write an entry about the same topic some day soon… Bounce rates can tell you alot…
    I tend to look at the bounce rate and then look at the keywords that brought people to the site. Does the page answer the keyword question? If No then there is some work to do on that or a new more focused post.
