Research Notes

Drafts

Are too many apps getting you down? How would you like to have one app that can be used to write and send a note to Evernote (or Simplenote, Things, OmniFocus, DayOne and more), a tweet to Twitter or Tweetbot, an update to Facebook or an email to anyone? Drafts [iPad – $3.99, iPhone – $2.99] does all that and more.

When you open Drafts, you’re presented with a blank note – ready to start typing. Type your note, then tap on the share icon at the top of the screen. The share panel slides out from the right as you see here.

But that’s just the beginning. It took a look at the apps installed on my iPad and added them to the list.

So, if I want to post the same update to Twitter and Facebook, I type it once in Drafts and share it as many times and places as I want. All it’s missing is a scheduling function.

Oh, and it includes TextExpander support too. At first I was a bit miffed that I had to buy separate apps for the iPad and iPhone, but it didn’t take long to realize that they’re well worth the price. It doesn’t take long to find all kinds of uses for this app.
