Drafts Desktop App / Web App


#1

We all know how that Drafts is God’s gift to iOS users.

A glaring hole in the canon of the Drafts religion of extensibility is the lack of unified access to drafts via a desktop app / web app.

For example, most major note-taking and productivity apps, like Evernote and OneNote, are cross-platform. As a matter of course, a user can access his or her notes on any device or via web platform.

I happen to be a Windows devotee, dare I say. I am not naive enough to ever hope for a Windows version of Drafts, so I pose this question on behalf of of Mac users.

Are there plans to develop a Drafts desktop app or web app?

I am sure this has been posed before, and likely considered.

What is the current answer to this question?


Mac version planned?

Point 5 under About Drafts 5 states:

We hope to bring Drafts to the Mac. A lot of work has been done in the Drafts 5 development cycle to prepare the app to move to the Mac, but we do not have anything to announce at this time.

I’m excited about it, too - but I’ll have to be patient.

Still, it’s been acknowledged and has a better chance of happening than ever before :grinning:

Thanks for the reply!!

Such a prompt response from a truly vibrant community that loves this app!

Ahh, democracy!

This would really be worth a couple more dollars per month on the sub version in my opinion!

I totally agree. An extra couple of dollars would get my vote.

A lot of us are iOS devotees, but have to use Windows at work. Even if it was just a question of accessing and simple editing of my Drafts it would be a big help.

Note that the above is a reference to a Mac version. Not a Windows version or even a web version. If you use Windows at work (like me), your iOS devices will almost certainly continue to be the way to access your drafts for the short term.

I appreciate that was referring to a Mac version. However unlikely it is to happen, I was mainly mentioning simple editing in reference to a web version.

I’d love macOS version! To be honest, that’d be a total life-changer. Please, keep going!

Hi all - I discovered drafts via Do By Friday - looks incredibly useful and I will be playing with it for the next month to see if it has a role in my work. I’m another windows user and would love an integration into OneNote at minimum or (date I ask) a windows version of the app. Even web UI would at least allow me to pull it into more of my life.

Great app and nice to find this productivity community!
