Draft

Draft


Draft is a versatile text editor for your Android smartphone and tablet. With Draft you can easily organise, edit and share all your notes.
You can create regular plain text files as well as Markdown and MultiMarkdown files.

Draft is powered by Dropbox, so all your documents are stored in the cloud where you can easily access them from any device you have.

(Notes created with Draft are not stored on the public storage of the device, so they cannot be directly accessed by other apps. Synchronization is only possible through the provided Dropbox integration.)

# Features

* Organise all your notes in folders and sub-folders
* Full text search of all your documents
* Fullscreen editing for distraction free writing
* Smart editing with a dedicated Markdown shortcuts toolbar and lists continuation
* Five different color themes
* Share your documents with other applications
* Share the Markdown generated HTML preview of your notes

# Dropbox synchronization

By default all your notes are stored in a dedicated folder in your Dropbox called 'Draft'; you can change this location in the application settings.
Draft provides full offline support, so every change you make to your notes will be propagated to Dropbox once the network is available.

Recent changes:
* New icon!

* Experimental: added support for images in markdown notes

* Fixed internote link navigation
* Fixed quick-note creation with external keyboards

* Added option to skip preview when opening a note

where are local files saved? I do not want to use Dropbox sync, I already have bittorrent sync. But this means I need to know where the app saves it's files on the filesystem so I can sync that folder.

Auto sync? I have to say this is what I've been seeking for quite some time. Fast, lightweight, powerful. If d-box sync was automatic, and the WHOLE app had a white on pure black theme it wood be perfect for me. I hope to see it update and grow :)

Cannot access old notes I've made a lot of notes with Epistle, and according to the developer Draft is the successor of Epistle. In fact, the developer disabled Epistle's Dropbox sync and encouraged users to buy Draft. Finally I did that, but I cannot import my old notes from Epistle into Draft. So the application is rather useless to me.

Randomly empties notes I like everything about this app except its occasionally deleting the entire contents of notes without warning, reason, or possibility of recovery. That's totally unacceptable in an app of this kind.

Need better sync with dropbox Too many Conflicts why can't we just manually save a file to dropbox
