Newbies have trouble wrapping their minds around using Drafts to launch text headed for Messages/Mail/etc, when it’s equally easy to use those apps. The answers are subtle, and you guys answer that a lot. But there’s a part of that issue that’s rarely discussed: ease-of-creating-new-Draft seems fundamental to getting over that initial hurdle.
For example, learning you can use iOS 14’s new “BackTap” function to double or triple tap the back of an iPhone to open a new draft opens up possibilities for people not already bought into the ecosystem.
But there’s no backtap for iPad. So how do people open a new draft there? Anything more convenient/clever than “Put Drafts in your dock”?
And, for that matter, on Mac? (my instinct would be to write an AppleScript and assign it a shortcut via Alfred’s powerpack).
