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 just to tweet or post to Facebook. 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.

In Drafts you can get that text down quickly and decide what to do with it later. Extensive output options let you send text to Twitter, Facebook,, email, SMS, a Calendar event, quickly save it to Dropbox, Google Drive or Evernote – or forward it to a growing list of other Apps such as OmniFocus, Things, Fantastical, Byword and more. Customize actions to fit into any workflow.


- QUICK ENTRY: App opens to a new blank draft to quickly jot down ideas.
- SAVE, SEARCH, SYNC: Not sure what to do with that text? Just type it in and leave drafts – no saving, it'll be there when you get back.

What's New

- [New] Action Export. Similar to new Drafts Export feature, all custom actions can now be exported in JSON, CSV, HTML or Markdown format via the Settings. Export Actions screen. Useful for backup and sharing.
- [Change] Markdown auto-list completion re-enabled thanks to update to the TextExpander SDK which avoids the issue which caused me to disable it. :-)
