First of all, Celtx is since long an important piece of the puzzle for my workflow. So I was quite intrigued to learn that Celtx were about to expand their lineup of tools with a storyboarding mobile app as well.
Celtx Shots uses Celtx Sync, just like Celtx Scripts to bring the project from the desktop to the mobile device. Unlike Scripts, Shots is a one way sync though. That would add a tremendous amount of value and comfort.
Anyway, Shots matches up with how the storyboarding functionality in the desktop app works very well. Shots is, well, more beautiful though. You can also define the type of shot and write a description. And you can organize it in sequences. So if you have used the desktop version before you should quickly be quite comfortable working with the mobile app. One neat feature, is that you can capture photos directly with the built-in iPad camera to the storyboard.
Which makes it very easy to quickly build up something being on location on a live feature.
It would be cool to try it out some day though. I recorded a quick walk-through video of Celtx Shots. I have a few other personal iPad projects coming, so it was a nice exercise in getting a somewhat decent recording quality of a screen. It turned out to not being the easiest thing in the world. Here is a few things that me personally would love to see in a future update.
Using Celtx Shots for Storyboards on the iPad
To sum it up. Even though this app is no game changer for my storyboarding workflow, it will provide me with some extra mileage. I might even be finishing a script in the lovely Celtx Scripts mobile app, which I then can sync over to Shots and start storyboarding right away. I already use the iPad for drawing storyboard frames away from my computer with Procreate and Sketchbook Pro combined with an iPad Wacom Pen. So bringing them into Shots to try it out right away will be handy indeed.
I can jump between Shots celrx Procreate. Draw new frames in Procreate, open them in Shots, make some additional notes, maybe add a blocking sketch, and then move on to the next shot. If interested in the app, checkout Celtx Shots in the App Store.

Great article Johan, I know this is very useful to you because of the scripts and shots compatibility. But what do you think about the Cinemek — Storyboard Composer? Great article once again!!! Thanks for your comment.
Which is great for many things, but not really for my workflow. The scenario I envisage is working on the script and storyboards concurrently. To be useful, I would need to be able to add new scenes or alter existing scenes in the script App and then have the script text updated and new scenes inserted in the existing storyboard. In your experience, would this be possible?
Thanks for any advice you can offer there! In that case my approach would probably be to not import the incomplete script to avoid script content that will be out of date almost immediately and possibly with no way to remove it other than deleting the sequence and csltx create the sequences relating to scenes manually. Enabling multitask gestures on the iPad, and then use the four finger swipe to move between script and shots could probably work close to looking at the script directly in shots, but without the constraints.
