My new favorite text editing iPhone app? Drafts. I heard about it last month via Ben Brooks, and after an initial hesitation (the design didn’t really appeal to me at first), I bought it. And now I love it.

It’s a simple idea, really — when you open the app, it creates a new note with the keyboard open. Which means you can start typing immediately. Which is awesome.

In fact, in the last few days I’ve started using it almost entirely to the exclusion of my other iPhone text editors (Simplenote and iA Writer). It’s really, really good for getting thoughts down quickly. I recommend it.
