Drafts, where text starts. Quickly capture text and send it almost anywhere!

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. Dont get bogged down in a timeline to tweet. Dont tap your way through multiple screens to get down an email or SMS. Dont 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. Drafts can make any workflow shine!

Pros and cons of Drafts: Quick Capture app for iPhone and iPad

Drafts: Quick Capture app good for

A very powerful little app for taking notes. I often want to take quick notes but Im not sure where I want to store them at the time. This is a great app for taking those notes and dealing with them later. It is also great for dealing with recurring items that one want to keep track of. I use it for tracking spam phone calls, to do items and other quick notes and reminders.
I use it for all of my draft documents and notes. I write a letter, email or document in Drafts first and then past into more complicated apps like Pages. Opens much quicker than pages. I can cut and paste into other apps easily. It is perfect for use in the right screen position on my iPad. If I see something in a document or web page I open drafts on the right screen and paste on the text. Fairly easy to find past notes with the file list.
One of my favorite features is the ability to reorder the text. No other text editor has this capability, aside from cut and paste, which is a little clumsy on an iPhone. This app stays on my home screen.
My all-around favorite editor! I love that you can extend its functionality. Its a solid app and I highly recommend it!
All writing starts here, and its so useful that I have the app on my dock.
For jotting down things quickly, and doing other things with them later, this is a very useful and handy app. It interacts with other applications in complex ways, letting you do many things without going through the process of copying and pasting text. It provides actions to do lots of things to either modify your text, prepare it for other apps, or send it without even activating the other app. It is also very VoiceOver accessible. Nice work, folks. Thanks very much.

Some bad moments

Used to use this all the time. Crashes every time I open it now.
Only reason I bought this app because of the copy from clipboard widget. Very convenient for citing from books, PDFs and Safari. Now its gone, what happened?
I bought Drafts 4.0 and it is plagued with bugs. First thing I did was try to import my notes from Drafts 3.0, error message. Nice. They promise to fix it in Drafts 4.0.2. Guess how many people are asking for a refund to Apple? I know I am.
I purchased this version since I expected to be the enhanced version of Draft but it is not.
If you need a sophisticated note taking app, it may suit you. However when I need to write down simple to do lists, which are easily available on the home PC as well, its not trivial. Markdown sound nice, but how about a simple display of bullets and check boxes?
Most of the ideas and features of this app were stolen from DraftPad and Textwell.
