My Poker Dealer


This app is my main driver! I use it for everything. It’s so versatile, especially coupled with TextExpander. Much like a card dealer, it captures everything in one hand (metaphor) and deals the cards of information wherever they need to go. All my personal clubs and professional meeting notes, conversation logs, text messages originate from here. And when my meetings have Tasks that need to move to my task manager software, I use it for that too.

It’s MUCH faster than Evernote in creating and formatting a note (using markdown feature to make it pretty). So, I craft my notes here and then send them to Evernote as my repository.

As a person that uses an IPad for most of the day (recording meeting notes, crafting proposals, managing tasks and scheduling meetings), I’d say that Drafts is a must have app for productivity. I’ll bet I’m only using 50% of what its capable of doing. It’s on my phone and iPad Dock because its so useful.

Most used app on my phone!


Drafts is an awesome app. It may be the most used app on my phone. I use it to draft journal entries, emails, Facebook and Twitter posts, stories, ideas, thoughts. If I write, it's probably done on Drafts.

It's easy to use and allows you to connect to a variety of services and apps. For me, one of the best things is that I can set the font size large enough so that I can see it without my reading glasses. That means that I can work anywhere. If I have a lot of words to write, I get out my Bluetooth keyboard, set my phone where I can see it and type away. Who needs a laptop? I'm writing this review on Drafts while riding in my car (riding, not driving!) holding my power with one hand and typing with my thumb. Talk about making creativity easy!

Awesome! iMessage and Watch too!


This is a great app! I haven't even used the formatting yet. It's well done, great usability, and the pinnacle of useful. It saves your note and creates a new blank note when you close the app completely. So it's always ready, no waiting for sync to finish or buttons to hit. Dictation adds more efficiency and quick use. Tons of cloud export options. The iMessage app lets you access and send notes which is worth getting the app alone. Add to that, the Watch app. Drafts is over the top useful.

I'm checking for a Mac app too.

Thank you for an excellent, well thought out and executed, app.
