Drafts by Agile Tortoise has only been out a few weeks and is already incredibly popular. It’s fast its clean its simple and supports Markdown. It is the perfect place to write a quick note or list. It’s so simple so easy it is amazing.
Tonight the developer released an update, to version 1.01, with a few great new features.
The first I am thrilled about is support to send a quick note into OmniFocus. Drafts is the perfect tool to add something to your inbox when you quickly think about it and now with OF integration it is even easier. Support for Things for Mac has also been added in this release.

The second thing was better support for “Open with”. Now if you start a draft you can select which application you want to open it in to finish a longer piece.

The update is fantastic. I am not sure what is on the roadmap for Drafts but here are a few things I would love to see:
