This week, MacSparky is sponsored by Drafts, where text always starts for me. Sometimes, apps need time to grow on me. With Drafts, it was love at first sight. First and foremost, Drafts is a text capture app. You open the app, and you’ve got a blinking cursor. Anytime I need to write down something on my phone. I tap the Drafts icon and get to work.
The thing is, my workflow on the Mac is the same. I keep Drafts in my menu bar. If I’m on a call and want to take notes or jot down a phone number, I click the Drafts icon and go.
But that isn’t all. Drafts is the poster child for third-party apps. You tap the complication, start speaking, and capture text that shows up on your phone and Mac.
In short, Drafts is the place to capture text. For some, that is enough. If you want more, Drafts has that too:
- Drafts also has a full suite of editing tools.
- Drafts can automate so your text gets sent to other places.
- Drafts lets you create actions right in the app.
Drafts is the Swiss army knife for text. I keep it on all my devices all the time. You should too.
That’s not all, Drafts’ developer has a special deal for MacSparky readers. You can get 50% off your first year of a new Drafts Pro subscription with this link. In order to work, this must be redeemed on an iPhone or iPad.
P.S. This post, like all others, began its life in Drafts. 🙂
