Rehearsal® Pro

A brand-new app, replacing the beloved Rehearsal 2, we present Rehearsal® Pro, the app for actors! Be off-book, book more work!

Want to learn your lines? Rehearsal® Pro is the app for that. Its predecessor, Rehearsal® 2, featured in the New York Times, Fast Company, LA Magazine and BACKSTAGE, became the entertainment industry standard for cast and crew to organize their scripts for auditions and working on set. Battle tested in Hollywood and around the world by professional actors and acting students.

And now, there’s Rehearsal® Pro.

"I love this app! Rehearsal® lets me learn my lines in the car while I drive to work. It already saved my butt when I was thrown a major new dialogue scene 45 minutes before we started shooting it. I plugged the new scene into Rehearsal and I was off book by the time I got out of the make up chair." -Clark Gregg (Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Desperate Housewives, New Adventures of Old Christine)

"I am very pleased with the results of using Rehearsal® so far. It is a powerful tool in preparing for auditions, or for days of work, especially when I am pressed for time. It is easy to use and I have no doubt that as it evolves, it will be a part of my work process for a long time." -John Carroll Lynch (Shutter Island, Dexter, The Drew Carey Show, Body of Proof)

Hey there, you Rehearsal® Pros, you!

Thank you for the great reception you’ve given us since we launched, and the great support, kudos, feedback and bug reports. Keep them coming!

In this fabulous upgrade, we tackled these issues, got them in a half-nelson, and left them gasping for air as they tapped out:

• You can now rearrange your scenes, even if you haven’t created any group.

• We implemented new tutorial startup screens so new users can get on board faster.

• You iPad 2 and iPad Mini 1 users, we’ve fixed that nasty "hey, that’s not highlighting, that’s, um, stupid!" issue.

• Also on iPad 2 and iPad Mini 1, you can now see all your glorious markup in their correct positions.

• We had a little "discussion" with a couple of your markup tools. Now, once you select the color and stroke of your highlighter or scribbler, it stays that way until you choose to change it.

• The search function now makes the keyboard go away once you enter your search phrase, and that search phrase text box no longer capitalizes your search phrase.

• You can now playback scenes in the background (when Rehearsal® Pro is not the app you’re using), when the screen is slept and when the Ringer Mute switch is set on mute, just like Music, the Audible app and Maps.

There are some other cosmetic fixes that have been driving me crazy, but we got those. And we’re working on other improvements.

Also, you might want to set your preference for updates to Rehearsal® Pro to be automatic. We want you to always have the latest and greatest! To do so, go to Settings > iTunes & App Store on your device. Under Automatic Downloads, enable Apps.
