When it comes to scriptwriting, there are few programs more professional than Final Draft.
Final Draft is a highly accomplished scriptwriting tool specifically designed for writing movie scripts, television episodes, and stage plays.
By removing the need to focus on formatting, it allows you to focus on the writing. Despite its power, it is a very easy-to-use package too. There is no need to learn about script formatting rules as Final Draft automatically formats your script to industry standards.
In the most recent version, Final Draft has been integrated with the writing project management tool Scrivener which easily allows you to manage your time while writing. Apart from that, there are no dramatic changes with the previous version, which some faithful fans will find disappointing.
Final Draft 8 may not offer nothing revolutionary different from previous versions but it still remains the industry standard when it comes to scriptwriting.

"Still the best"
I'm a professional playwright and have been using Final Draft for years to author my scripts. The program is simple and easy to learn. It has several basic functions that make life much easier, such as the ability to choose your script style (T.V., a few varieties of stage play scripts, etc.), and auto fill for character names. I haven't used many other programs, but out of the ones I've used, Final Draft is my choice for daily script writing.
