About a year ago I decided to migrate from using a proprietary notes system like Apple Notes to using text files with Dropbox.
There are tons of apps that connect to my dropbox files, whether on mobile or Mac, including:
So I can essentially have a full use to access my files however and wherever I want, which is pretty cool.
My issue is that Drafts doesn’t sync with Dropbox, so I need an alternative for it. The ability to export from Drafts to Dropbox is not helpful enough because I am in the habit of re-accessing old files in my Drafts inbox and there is no way to auto export them to Dropbox it’s always a manual press which means inevitably I have leftover files on Drafts. Not to mention that it’s my favorite text editor anyways more than those other apps listed above.
Here are the three things I love about Drafts and wonder if there is an alternative that syncs with dropbox:
(1) The ability to put custom actions on top of the keyboard
(2) Drafts loads very fast compared to apps like Ulysses
(3) Apps like Ulysses and 1Writer keep trying to remove my navigation bar when I start writing. I personally find this bothersome and no way to turn it off in settings
