Anything that Drafts 4 can that the non-pro Drafts 5 cannot?


the automatic backups are to iCloud but you can integrate actions with other cloud services.


Thanks …

BTW, I have already started my trial week … I was already missing Workspaces and different Themes.
I was falling more in love with every minute.

I think, this will be my very first subscription, even if my above (general) thoughts are still valid :wink:


Subscriptions are an app by app value proposition. We’re working hard to make a commitment to delivering that value. We hope we can for you.


for me subscriptions and their value are a case by case basis. I’m happy to support Drafts this way because I use it’s features, and while I may not be the most “power” of the power users, I’m definitely closer to that side than just what the free app does. So it’s a no brainer for me.

And really that’s what I think about with all subscriptions. I am subscribed to various services (like Dropbox and Netflix) but as far as regular apps, the only other two are Overcast (I’m listening to podcasts constantly and want to support the development ) and 1password, which is vital for me and my family. Had Workflow ever gone the subscription route I would have done that one too. That’s basically it for me. Its all about choosing on a case by case basis. If an app goes subscription and doesn’t offer the value for me, I just don’t get it. If it does offer value, then it’s a no brainer.


I balance my list of subscriptions accordingly. Like most, I can’t afford to subscribe to everything.

At the end of the day it is all about how you assign value. I don’t work for free, so I conversely don’t mind paying for top of the line work in return.

The bottom line for me is that Drafts 5 Pro doesn’t disappoint; it truly is a tool it saves me a ton of time, makes my life easier with key solutions for how I work on iOS. A yearly Drafts 5 Pro subscription is literally 0.05476; 5 cents (USD) a day.

And I can hardly wait for the upcoming macOS version that will be part of it all.

Best of luck!


I’m Windows based, so this is very sad for me.

But why I am constantly complaining about subscriptions, is not because I am not willing to spend money.

I think I wrote that 2 times above: There is a better solution than subscriptions to help out both customers and developers!

Subscriptions cannot work for all apps and developers - but this is what I see growing, which is very bad.

And I will be part of that, as Drafts will be my first subscription.


Subscriptions don’t work for all app, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t best for SOME apps. And having been a Drafts 4 user and a Drafts 5 user, it seems to me like this is a good fit.


Wow! I love Drafts, but I couldn’t ditch Day One for it!

Did not see that one coming!
