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

* Create, view and edit plain text and Markdown or MultiMarkdown notes
* 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
* Receive text from other applications
* Store your notes in the cloud with Dropbox

# File formats

* Draft can create notes with the following extensions:
- txt
- md

* Draft can import (from Dropbox or other apps) files with the following extensions:
- txt
- md
- markdown
- 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.
Both absolute ( [Absolute ref](/folder/subfolder/note.txt) ) and relative ( [Relative ref](subfolder/note.txt) ) paths are supported.

Don't use this app. Don't use this app if you value your notes. Randomly deletes your notes regularly. Developer please fix this.

Excellent markdown editor Far better than any of the free apps I tried! Most importantly, it can access all of your Dropbox files so you're not limited to a subfolder. Nice smooth interface. The only problems are that sometimes files get duplicated if you edit them multiple times on the same day - but if you delete any of the duplicates, the original vanishes on Dropbox. I imagine this is to do with Dropbox's version history. Also some of my files wouldn't show. A reinstall fixed this though.

Data loss needs fixing, otherwise good. I've used and liked Draft for months, but a recurring bug has caused complete loss of a text file several times (file saved as empty, 0 bytes). This bug also appears in other reviews here, and in a note-taking app, that kind of bug is completely unacceptable! It's a shame, I like the app otherwise; if the bug is fixed I'd give it 4 stars and use it daily!
