Draft is one of my FAVORITE products. I use it daily and pay $4/mo not for any additional functionality but because I want to support the product and Nathan Kontny (who just happens to be a great guy). I wrote about this here: http://ryanhoover.me/post/49019854065/why-i-pay-for-draft-and-other-free-products
My biggest gripe with Draft is that the non-text-editing portions of the interface are super confusing. I hope it gets a redesign soon
Yeah I tried to get into draft (especially after your prodding, Ryan). Somehow I still go back to using iaWriter - It feels like the future to me is having snappyfast light clients paired with in-app purchasing like expert grammar corrections. At least, *I hope* that's the future :)
Admittedly, Draft has some usability issues and unfamiliar design patterns but once you learn how it works, it's very useful.
The amount of work and passion for details in Draft is impressive. I really love it. Some key features:
- Hemingway mode: you are not allowed to edit anything until you turn it off
- Ask for revision: send an email to your friends and reviewers, their revisions can be accepted or refused (works like git)
- One click publishing to Wordpress, Twitter, Blogger
I do like draft for its version control but I rely too much on keyboard shortcuts available in my favorite writing app Byword.
I use Draft almost everyday and purchased the annual subscription to hopefully spur added functionality and mature the experience
Is it me, or is there really no information or clue about any kind of price/cost of the tool?
Love the clean UI
@famousalan Personally, I don't like the user interface at all... This is why I prefer Typed.
Just wrote about you guys on Jeff Bullas' blog! http://bit.ly/1LiTM8b
Great tool definitely worth mentioning.
I have tried Draft and really like it for the slick UI and many of its nifty productivity features. My fav feature is definitely the statistics. :)
Late to this software, just used it this morning and realised they have the "Ask a Pro" and "Simplify" functions, very useful!
