Drafts, where text starts. Quickly capture text and send it almost anywhere!
One of TIME Magazine's Best Apps of 2018!
MacStories "Best App Updates of 2018" selection!
Drafts lets you turn text into action – it’s a quick notebook, handy editor, and writing automation tool, all in one. Instead of tapping around other apps, capture in Drafts first. Open it and write right away, then do something useful with your words.
## HOW DRAFTS WORKS ##
Drafts opens to a new page with the keyboard ready so you can type immediately. Go hands-free with Dictation, or ask Siri to "Create a note using Drafts".
Drafts lets you get things down before you forget – no choosing document templates or waiting for your file to download.
USE YOUR WORDS:
Drafts is a launching-off point for text – use the actions to copy it, share it, or deep link into other apps and services. Compose a tweet or message, create a file in Dropbox, send a task off to Reminders – there are hooks into tons of your favorite apps.
REMEMBER IT NOW – OR LATER:
New entries go into the Inbox. Once there, you can Tag them for organization, Flag them for importance, or Archive them for long-term storage.
TAKE TEXT TO A NEW LEVEL:
Set up a text editing experience that’s perfect for you, with tons of interface adjustments like custom fonts and control over spacing, line height, and margins.
Use the customizable extended row above the keyboard to quickly convert, manipulate, and transform your writing. Make lists, use Markdown to get things just right.
Process your drafts quickly using unique features like Link Mode, Arrange Mode, and Focus Mode.
## WHY YOU’LL LOVE DRAFTS ##
IT WILL CHANGE HOW YOU USE YOUR DEVICES:

GETTING WORDS DOWN HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER:
Drafts opens lightning fast and with support for capture via Siri, the widget, share extension, file import, and dictation - Drafts is like post-its updated for the smartphone era.

Ratings and Reviews
An apology, changed my mind
I originally wrote quite a damming review as i was outraged at the change to a subscription model from drafts 4, a bit of a knee-jerk reaction. I have now removed that review. This developer is actually very fair. He gives you a weeks free trial of the full option set, which I used, and it then reverts to the free version. The free version is very usable and contains all the features I need. He does not hold back one important feature to make you pay for features
you don’t need. The app is now very polished and I use it everyday. I can see the need for the subscription version for power users and hope he gets quite a few to pay for continuing
development and support for this app. I would hate to see it go and have made a modest voluntary contribution in drafts4 ,so be fair and give the man .99 or 1.99 or whatever.
apologies to the developer for my previous hasty review
Breathtaking ability of free version
WITHOUT the subscription, an incredible app ! In minutes, I can write by dictation. Then I can sequence. Bang - it’s readable prose. I’m blown away by creating content this quickly. Remarkable. And the extras are really developers extras. That means this app is free !!!! I would never pay for a subscription. I hate subscription. But these guys are fair. You get the choice. Something awesome for NOTHING.. but if you feel a tad guilty using all of this for free, pay. And even if you cancel later, the free is not a crippled horse. It has 95% of what you want! So in conclusion. Unfair for them if you use the free version. Or unfair for you if you pay the subscription. So each party is weirdly kind of equal...but as you choose, you get your cake, and eat it. So developers, thank you!
Worth the cost
Initially I baulked at the subscription, and maybe it is a bit high when compared with various to-do apps, plus the fact I had only fairly recently purchased Drafts 4. However, for me, it's worth it. YMMV - and probably will.
The free version is a more-than-capable text editor and will suit a lot of people. Drafts is slick to use, making it very easy to capture thoughts/lists/notes digitally. For busy people it can easily become an indispensable part of daily life. I look forward to seeing how it develops. At least with a subscription model I can hope it will stick around & not become abandonware.
