Sponsor: Drafts 4

Drafts

This week Six Colors has been sponsored by Drafts by Agile Tortoise. At first glance Drafts looks like yet another iOS note-taker or text editor, but it’s so much more, and the new Drafts 4 takes it to a whole new level.

In Drafts, text comes first. When you open the app, you get a new, blank draft—ready to receive your text input. Don’t fiddle with names or tags or anything like that, and jump straight to the most important thing—getting your words down.

Once your words are down, Drafts goes to work for you. You can send that text to social media, save it (or prepend/append it) to a file on a cloud-storage site, or pass it on to a third-party app such as OmniFocus or Fantastical. Drafts can use its own multi-step actions as well as the power of JavaScript to perform complex tasks in a single tap.

Want to know more? You can read David Sparks’s review, or the five-mouse Macworld review, or the MacStories review.

Drafts 4 is available on the App Store for $9.99. Thanks so much to Agile Tortoise and Drafts for sponsoring Six Colors this week.
