Drafts for Scratchpads

An update for Drafts came out today that supports the file naming convention that I use for scratchpads. By using the predefined naming scheme Scratchpad_[[date|%y-%m-%d]] and the append action, you’ll get a new text document with that name if it doesn’t already exist or the text will be appended if it does.

If you’re on an iOS device with Drafts installed, use this link to import this Dropbox action.

I’m happy with my separate buckets for writing compared to using something like Drafts for everything because of the separate features and context of each app. Extending quick scratchpad functionality to iPhone and iPad using Drafts is handy though.
