Drafts, where text starts. Quickly capture text and send it almost anywhere! 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 ## CAPTURE EVERYWHERE: 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: Drafts gives you a new approach to using your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch, letting you write first and think about what to do with it later. Try it in your dock for a week, you'll find you can't live without it. 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. POWERFUL ACTIONS: Actions make Drafts a Swiss Army knife for text.

  • Subscription based?

    By Acohen007
    Oh come on give me a break. Everyone and their mother thinks they can charge a subscription for an app. I would have paid to upgrade but I refuse to support these ridiculous subscription models.
  • WHAT?!?!

    By fozzerino
    I can't believe this app that read my mind and gave me just what I was looking for without knowing what I was looking for. How many times have I grabbed my phone to jot down a thought, only to get stuck wondering what app I should jot it in? Now I don't have to think anymore. Everything goes into Drafts until I decide where to send it. I can't thank the developer enough for this incredibly thoughtful and well-thought-out app!!
  • How a subscription should be

    By CyberskierPA
    Since Drafts 5 was released, the app has seen regular, major updates. This makes me feel like I’m paying for a service, rather than a standalone app. Drafts is one of the apps that is always in my dock.
  • Dark mode should be app reqirement Apple

    By MichiganMichael
    Pay monthly for dark mode. Really? I don't need any other subscription benefits. One time purchase possible for dark? Apple needs to force all apps to have free dark mode. Pathetic cash grab imo.
  • Not all that much better than Drafts 4

    By Beckov
    Drafts 5 has some extra features and I like the focus mode. The dark theme is also much darker than Drafts 4. On the focus mode, I’d like a third option to have the app open straight to the inbox screen. I use and continuously modify existing notes more than I create new ones, so this would be a feature I’d really like. Also, the “hide” the extended keyboard option doesn’t actually remove the keyboard row, just hides the icons. This makes my visible screen space for editing very small. The keyboard extras take up a bit too much real estate on my screen. Drafts 4 actually gave you back that screen space when you chose to hide the extended keyboard. Overall I’m debating whether Drafts 5 with its subscription fees is that much better than Drafts 4 to make it worth paying on an ongoing basis. I’m just not sure yet. I’ll give it a month and see. A shame though when the one feature I most need and paid $5 for in Drafts 4, the dark mode, is now $2 every month.
  • This app is absolutely amazing..

    By drafts day1 review
    I feel like a doctor, dictation transcription and transmission all in one. Let me just say, I never write reviews on any app. Although I may like them, this one is worth writing a review form. Within minutes of digging into it and seeing how effective it is on my I watch and combination with my iPhone, there’s no need to ever sit down and plan what I’m gonna write or type anymore. I’m so excited to learn more…Great job guys. Although one thing I may not have learned yet is how do I complete a paragraph and skip to the next paragraph verbally? Or if I wanted to make a bullet list, is that possible hands free?
  • Drafts

    By adrian8572mac
    It’s a great Apple Watch app. Very easy to take notes (when you have something in mind) I wish that every time I press the microphone can set a default language speaking.(ex:Romanian language) My watch has 2 language (English and Romanian) and I want to speak into Romanian language and not have to switch to Romanian from English language all the time.
  • Whoops... subscription.

    By mnmcook
    Longtime Drafts user, excited to see a new version! Willing to pay for an upgrade. But downloaded without reading the details. I don’t do app subscriptions. Will find other means.
  • Drafts Allows me to Use an iPad as my Main Computer

    By Ben S 88
    Drafts is the best writing app on the store. Whether I am sending a text or working on my novel, Drafts is always where I start.
  • Daily use

    By howard.weaver
    This is one app I use many times every day. It’s great for taking notes, copying from articles and writing all manner of things. It’s quick, clean and regularly updated. It will do many automated tasks that I don’t much need, but even with all the firepower it’s also nimble for the non-power user (me). Come on, what more do you want? Support Drafts.
