Quickly take notes
Drafts is about capturing and sharing text. Open the app and you get a new page, ready to be filled. You can then start typing, and when done use built-in or additional actions to send your text elsewhere.
This is nothing new, but what sets Drafts apart from the competition is its flexibility. Its rich features feel more akin to the now-closed Editorially app than a typical notes app.
The keyboard strip above the predictive text bar is fully configurable, and you can compose your own actions to craft bespoke workflows. An arrange button enables you to rearrange paragraphs, and there’s also Share sheet and iOS Document Picker support that boosts general system integration.
Getting text into the app is a mite fiddly – web capture is basic, and there’s no means to open existing text files from within Drafts – but this is nonetheless a versatile tool. Craig Grannell
A strong update to what was already an impressive app for making notes and sending them on.
