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.

Draft is still under highly active development, so any feedback is greatly appreciated!

(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.)

# File formats

- org

# 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
* Added inter-note linking support using the standard Markdown syntax.

Best text editer I've used Worth the price because it's fast, intuitive, and smooth. What a sidekick!

Excellent app Was hostile when it first released because of the sync issues. All fixed and very useful app for old school text file types.

Exactly the kind of application I was looking for. I use it to maintain my "personal wiki". Some things I'm missing: - There seems to be no "unindent" key, to go back a level when editing lists. - Some reassurance that the Dropbox sync feature handles conflicts correctly (maybe sync on opening file would also solve the problem?) - Renaming files - A nice-to-have would be to define your own list styles (for instance, one I'm used to its "-" in the first level, two spaces and "*" in the second level).

Some bugs I really like this app. It's exactly what I've been looking for: Dropbox sync, text files with real folder organization (very important), and a widget to display a single note (to do list). However, the note previews don't always display correctly. So my widget rarely displays my to do list bullets right. Either it shows a space between lines where there isn't, or it removes the space, merging the lines together. I also lost the text only once, a few weeks ago.

1. To my eyes the Text Cursor is not Bright enough, especially upon choosing a Dark[er] style on my device. (Or I_could even say that Draft's text editing cursor is rather hard to find in Any style.) This UFL seriously compromises usability, sadly taking down two stars with me. (X4701.) /// 2._No_"Undo", or am I blind ? /// 3._At the up-side, the_inter-file link feature is great.
