Here are the steps to Getting Started with Drafts

When you first launch Drafts, it opens ready for you to type so you can jot down your thoughts.

Drafts are organized around three basic areas:

  • Editor: In the center is the editor. Drafts launch directly to the editor, keeping your text first.

Drafts is a plain text editor, and supports syntax highlighting for Markdown and a number of other markup formats, and has unique modes to let you arrange text, work with links, and more.

  • Draft List: The draft list is where you manage drafts. Retrieve past drafts, filter and organize them, create workspaces, and more.

[2] Things 3

Things 3 is a  personal task manager for iPhone, iPad, and all Apple devices that helps you achieve your goals.

The Germany-based software startup Cultured Code is a 2017 Apple Design award-winning app for organizing your life that’s both simple and robust.

It works across Apple devices only right now. It is not available on Android or PC but, if you have at least one-Apple made product, it’s probably worth considering.

Just take a look at the basic building block of Things – its to-dos. You immediately get a sense of how the new apps feel.

When you open a to-do, it smoothly transforms into a clear white piece of paper, ready for your thoughts. If you like, you can add more details (tags, a checklist, a start date, a deadline), but those fields are neatly tucked away in the corner until you need them. There are no distractions here, it’s just you and your thoughts.

Once you’ve made your plan in the morning, the Today list is your go-to place for all daily activities. Calendar events now display together with your to-dos, giving an outline of your schedule.

Decide which calendars you want to see in Things: Personal, Family, Work, and more. The events are neatly grouped at the top of your Today list. With your to-dos below, your whole day is laid out before you.

There are often to-dos you won’t get to until later in the day – such as things you can only do when you get home. So they’ve added This Evening, which allows you to keep these to-dos separate from the rest, in their own discrete list.
