Drafts 3.0, Better and Better

Drafts 3.0 (iPhone) (iPad) is out and this app just keeps getting better and better. I know there are some other applications claiming to do the same thing as Drafts (quick text capture and processing on iOS) but I’m so in love with Drafts. First, in creating Drafts, Greg Pierce filled a huge void in the iOS market that I didn’t even realize existed. Second, he just keeps raising it to new levels.

At version 2.5 he added some really useful Dropbox workflows. This new version 3.0 gives the same treatment to Evernote. There is more though. Libraries of tasks are easier to manage, there are URL schemes, and other bits of trickery to pull off automation on iOS that makes my nerd-heart go pitter patter.

For a really good review, go check out Federico Viticci’s write-up at MacStories. For OmniFocus geeks, go check out this trick from Sid O’Neill that lets you add multiple OmniFocus tasks from Drafts. If you’re still not sold on Drafts, listen to Merlin Mann and I wax poetic on it in MPU 132.
