Drafts is a terrific way to quickly capture bits of text on iOS and send them almost anywhere. But while it’s obvious Drafts can send text to many places, it now also uses iOS 8’s built-in document picker to import text as well. So if you’ve started a note on your Mac, as long as you’ve saved it in a compatible location, you can bring it into Drafts on your device to continue working or take an action.

Just tap and hold on the new draft button (+), and a menu will appear. Select your file storage option and you’ll be able to bring your text into the app. You can learn more about this functionality on the Agile Tortoise Support Page.
