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


Drafts lets you turn text into action. It’s a quick notebook, handy editor, and writing automation tool, all in one. Instead of tapping around other apps, capture in Drafts first. Open it and write right away, then do something useful with your words.


How Drafts Works

Capture Everywhere

Drafts opens to a new page with the keyboard ready so you can type immediately. Go hands-free with Dictation, or ask Siri to "Create a note using Drafts".


Drafts lets you get things down before you forget – no choosing document templates or waiting for your file to download.



Drafts is a launching-off point for text – use the actions to copy it, share it, or deep link into other apps and services. Compose a tweet or message, create a file in Dropbox, send a task off to Reminders – there are hooks into tons of your favorite apps.



New entries go into the Inbox. Once there, you can Tag them for organization, Flag them for importance, or Archive them for long-term storage.



Set up a text editing experience that’s perfect for you, with tons of interface adjustments like custom fonts and control over spacing, line height, and margins.


Use the customizable extended row above the keyboard to quickly convert, manipulate, and transform your writing. Make lists, use Markdown to get things just right.


Process your drafts quickly using unique features like Link Mode, Arrange Mode, and Focus Mode.


Why You’ll Love Drafts


It Will Change How You Use Your Devices

Drafts gives you a new approach to using your iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch, letting you write first and think about what to do with it later. Try it in your dock for a week, you'll find you can't live without it.


Getting Words Down Has Never Been Easier

Drafts opens lightning fast and with support for capture via Siri, the widget, share extension, file import, and dictation - Drafts is like post-its updated for the smartphone era.



Actions make Drafts a Swiss Army knife for text. Integrate with a bewildering array of apps and services.
