Intended for television and film production, Scriptation is a robust iPad app that allows you to annotate PDFs and easily transfer those annotations. The app not only went on sale for $9.99 today, July 20, but did so with a comical flair. Who better to endorse the demise of traumatic script changes using the app than the talented and funny Rainn Wilson. From the hit television show “The Office,” Wilson stars in a hilarious video for the company’s campaign. Entitled “End Script Change Hell,” the video is as much of a must-see for fans as the app is a must-have for those in the industry.

If you’ve ever had 30 revision pages on a 40-page script, you know how time consuming and tedious it is to copy your notes to new script pages. Scriptation’s proprietary note transferring algorithm, Transcription, analyzes script changes and transfers every note to its corresponding location in the next draft in literally seconds.- Scriptation on the App Store
In addition to Wilson’s entertaining endorsement of Scriptation, others in the industry such as Michael Spiller, director of “The Mindy Project” and Alex Reid, writer and director of “Malcom in the Middle,” have had wonderful things to say about the app. How could these experts be wrong?
Scriptation is available for iPad and normally priced at $14.99. The sale lasts until July 31 and puts the price at $9.99, which is a bargain for this vibrant tool.
