Drafts, where text starts. Quickly capture text and send it almost anywhere! #### Macworld, Eddy Award Winner, 5 Mice! #### Lifehacker Pack for iPhone/iPad #### “Easily one of the best iOS apps I’ve ever used.” – Merlin Mann #### See drafts in action at agiletortoise.com/screencasts Drafts is the quick, easy way to capture and share text. In Drafts, text comes first – open the app and get a new, blank draft – ready to type. Don't get bogged down in a timeline to tweet. Don't tap your way through multiple screens to get down an email or SMS. Don't navigate folders, create files and name them just to jot down a note or create a todo. Extensive output options let you send text to Twitter, Facebook, Mail, Message, a Calendar event, quickly save (or prepend/append) to Dropbox, Google Drive or Evernote and much more. Advanced multi-step actions and Javascript integration can combine all of these options in a single tap and more.

  • Very unhappy!

    By BACBC42
    I could not delete notes from my watch 3 no matter what I tried. It would beep but not delete note. I had to uninstall app after paying for it. It also did not sync with my iPhone-to it or from it.
  • One of my "absolute must have apps" on all the IOS devices I own!!

    By bhokey
    Best note taking app for IOS there is. What I would pay to have it on MacOS!
  • Quick

    I have looked for an app like this for a long time. Wish it would link to Wunderlist.
  • These developers rock.

    I can’t believe I’ve been without Drafts. Now that I’ve discovered it – it’s perfect for me! Love the Apple Watch app. And really love that the developers aren’t greedy, which is becoming rare.
  • Drafts, Part of the iOS

    By ArtfromDon
    I’ve been using so long Drafts seems part of the iOS. Texting, emailing, reminders and appointments exported to Fantastical using actions, just a place to put thoughts or ideas, even to jot down a new password (temporarily). Action steps are awesome. Need to send a text to a small group, then a different subset of the same, set up an action, done. Just scratching the surface.
  • Phenomenal

    Must have app...
  • Deserves my respect

    By SkyHighDevon
    So sometimes i like to draft long texts that I decide to leave unfinished until later and when I come back to it or at least attempt to, it's gone. I can draft text on this Drafts app and not have to worry about copy and pasting anything to something like Notes app for a potentially later time. I just finish where I left off and then send to messages not missing a beat. I know there are many other uses for this app however this always seems to save the day.
  • Superb app! Apple Watch owners take note.

    By IMWJL
    This tremendously useful app just gets better with each upgrade. The features for Apple Watch owners make it among the most useful Apple Watch apps. You can append and prepend notes with scribble as well as Siri. This is way more than basic notes. This app captures all sorts of content, formats, and sends to about anything. This is a power tool as much as it is a nice basic addition to modern computing that goes across devices and platforms. This is very much worth the app price and time spent to learn it.
  • Horrible

    By Marcia Z
    Spent 5 dollars, it doesn’t open on the watch, and developers don’t reply email how to fix it! Can I have my money back,please?
  • Drafts is great!

    By RR3121
    Extremely useful. Saves time. So many different pre-sets you can set up. I use this for group emails and group texts. All my different groups are there, I don’t have to waste time adding each name. You won’t regret this purchase, the developer earned their money.
