For Everything You Write

Highland is used everyday for novels, comic books, school papers and blog posts.

For Everything

I write exclusively in Highland. Five screenplays, three books, countless articles and blog posts. Highland is designed for the way writers actually work because I actually work in it for hours every day.

Beyond Screenplays

Beyond Screenplays

Highland is for everything you write.

Final Draft and other screenwriting apps are so screenplay-specific that it’s awkward to use them for treatments, outlines or other documents.

Highland's broad-range of PDF templates keep you focused on writing, not worrying about formatting.

Power and Simplicity

Highland's tools are designed for the way you work.


[[Useful]] Notes

Highland’s notes live inside double brackets [[  ]] inline with your text.

Never miss a reminder or lose an idea hidden behind a tiny icon.

I highly recommend Highland 2 for students and professionals alike, whether you’re a filmmaker, blogger, or writer. This app should be your go-to for creative writing, no matter the story you’re trying to tell.
