Trying something new with content capture on iPhone

As a long-time Drafts user, I’m experimenting with a new approach to capturing content.

Most of my capture happens on my iPhone. Traditionally, I’ve used Drafts to gather everything, then send it to its final destination. I’m thinking of bypassing Drafts and capturing content directly into its final app.

Here’s the plan:

  • Blogging/Writing: Capture in iA Writer
  • Notes: Capture in Apple Notes
  • Reminders and Tasks: Capture in Things

This method covers most of what I capture.

To streamline the process, I’ve created a shortcut called Quick Add on my iPhone for quick capture to Things, Notes, and iA Writer. The Quick Add shortcut, in my Dock, allows me to quickly add a new task to Things, a new note to Notes, or a new idea for a blog post to iA Writer. I’ll let you know on how this works out for me.
