Drafts 1.0.1 for iPhone Adds “Open In” Functionality

Drafts for iPhone

Drafts, the quick scratchpad app I covered earlier this month, is quickly becoming the spot for quickly composing text on the iPhone. In addition to being a great place to store tweet drafts and quick thoughts, Drafts 1.0.1 can now interact with other apps. If you’re an Omnifocus or Things user, a quick reminder to “Buy Milk” can be sent straight to your Inbox straight from Drafts. There’s still isn’t an equivalent button for sending text to Evernote, but you can send text from Drafts into most any text-editing application using the “Open In” feature. It still takes two taps to get a draft into Evernote as a new note using this method, but it’s certainly faster than e-mailing notes to Evernote (which is what I had to do previously).

The thing is, all of these great new features have spawned another request: I’d really like to be able to automatically delete a Drafts note after taking an action on it. This would probably be best left as an option so that it doesn’t confuse newer users, but it makes sense to delete a note in Drafts once I’ve copied it to the clipboard or opened the note using another app, e.g. Evernote, where it will presumably be preserved for the long term. This would save me a bit of time and fit right in with the thoughtful “let me get that for you” nature of the app.

If you’re looking to purchase Drafts, it’s still just $0.99 on the App Store.
