Extend Drafts with ready-to-install Actions from the Action Directory! →
News, Tips & Release Notes | Support and Documentation

Drafts is a different kind of note taking app. In Drafts, text comes first – open the app and get a new, blank draft. Don’t get bogged down in a timeline to tweet or post to Facebook and Don’t tap through multiple screens to compose an email or SMS. Don’t navigate folders, create files and name them just to jot down a note or create a todo. Drafts is available for both iPhone and iPad.

Try it in your dock for a week, you won’t regret it!

Quick Capture

Launch Drafts and start typing. It’s that simple. No upfront decisions about titles, filenames or folders. Return to drafts later, and a new draft is ready.

Easy Storage, Search and Lightning Fast Sync

Not sure what to do with that text? Type it and leave Drafts - no saving, it will be there when you get back. Draft history works like a stack of paper with recent items on top. Full text searching is also available, and enable sync to keep multiple versions of Drafts (on both iPhone and iPad) in line. Organization is simple – Inbox for new drafts, archive for old ones – or “pin” drafts you want to easily access later.

Flexible Output

Send tweets to Twitter, post to Facebook, compose and send email, SMS/Messages, create calendar events – or save drafts to Dropbox or Evernote. You can also use “Open in” to export a draft to any other app installed which supports importing text files.

Email and Message Actions

Configure an unlimited number of custom email actions with predefined values for recipients, subject, body templates. Send in the foreground or background, and even use Markdown. Message actions let you setup single tap actions to text predefined recipient lists. Read more about email actions or message actions

Dropbox, Google Drive and Evernote Actions

Create custom actions that create, append or prepend to files in your Dropbox or Google Drive, or notes in Evernote. Advanced tags allow you to construct rolling journal files, add timestamps and more. Read more about dropbox actions, Google Drive Actions or evernote actions.

URL Actions, the Action Directory and Workflow Automation

Download ready to use URL Actions from our Action Directory to integrate with a long list of popular apps and websites – including OmniFocus, Things, Tweetbot, Byword, Fantastical, Notesy and many more. Advanced users can create advanced URL scheme based actions as well. Looking to automate workflows on iOS? Drafts also supports incoming URL schemes to create drafts, and trigger actions in your action list – including callback support. See a great example using Launch Center Pro.

Markdown Support

Drafts supports Markdown, the structured markup language. If you write in Markdown, you can preview the HTML output, send it as a formatted HTML email or copy the HTML output to the clipboard for use in other apps. Advanced Markdown extensions such as footnotes and tables are supported as well.

Reminders Integration

Drafts can import reminders from the iOS Reminders app, allowing creation of drafts via Siri, or via the Mac OS X Reminders app (with iCloud). Drafts can also create reminders and lists in the Reminders app. Learn more
