Drafts, where text starts on iOS. Quickly capture text and send it almost anywhere! One of the App Store’s most popular productivity apps has gone to the next level with Drafts 4!

#### Macworld, Eddy Award Winner, 5 Mice!
#### Lifehacker Pack for iPhone/iPad
#### Best of 2014 on MacStories, TUAW and more!
#### “Easily one of the best iOS apps I’ve ever used.” – Merlin Mann
#### Universal and now optimized for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus!

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 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.

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!
