Mariner Software Releases Contour 1.0 for iPhone

Minneapolis, MN – April 7, 2010 -Mariner Software, developers and publishers of professional and personal software, today released Contour for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The mobile version of the award-winning story development system is available immediately from the App Store. Like Contour for Mac OS X, Contour 1.0 for iPhone streamlines the process of turning movie and story ideas from first glimmer to a full outline. Wherever you go with your iPhone, your screenwriting ideas can come with you.

Created by Emmy Award-nominated Jeffrey Alan Schechter, the Contour system is based on simple-to-understand principles and has been field tested, resulting in millions of dollars worth of writing assignments and script sales. Contour for iPhone features the ability to transfer screenplays between the device and Mac or between the device and PC, as long as the device and desktop are on the same wireless network, using a web browser.

Other features of Contour for iPhone include:

  • Flesh out a main character and codify their motivations and behaviors
  • Use tips and examples explaining the concepts
  • See script examples of major movies using the Contour system
