There is a new addition to my home screen, Drafts. Drafts came out about a month ago. The idea behind this application is a capture box for text. There is no mystery that I rely on text a lot to get work done and collecting random bits of text is pretty important to me.
In the past, I did this with a text file called “Daily” where I dropped bits of text and as I went through my day. The problem with this was that in order to capture text on my iPhone, I needed to open my text app, find the Daily file, insert the cursor, and begin adding text. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but those three steps could be a barrier to capturing something.
That’s why I have come to love Drafts. As soon as you open the application, it displays a blank screen ready for you to start adding text. Using the voice dictation features on the iPhone 4S, I’m able to add bits of text to my iPhone without any friction whatsoever.
