# Interactive checkboxes
Jot down some simple todos or your grocery list. Use the checkbox button or standard Markdown checkboxes ("- [ ] ") to activate interactivity. From there, tap to mark as completed.

Changed my workflow entirely

Quick Draft has literally changed my workflow entirely. I was searching for the perfect app to be my easy scratchpad for thoughts that came to mind in the moment.

Nothing came close, either it was too complex or it took too long to get to the new note. Quick Draft solved all of that for me, immediately. Would 100% recommend.

A great start.

Firstly, the app does what is says and I have encountered no bugs.

Being able to choose your own font in the settings would be great though, as I would prefer to type in a font such as Helvetica. In addition, being able to format selected text to a title and/or subtitle by pressing one button would be useful, especially for larger drafts.

Hi BritishJames, thanks for the kind words! Font selection is coming soon!

Most useful app on my phone

There are other options out there for quick notes, but this one just gets you straight into it and so easy to get things out of your head.

A lot of the more powerful task managers and note apps offer an “Inbox” feature, but I’ve yet to come across one that is as quick to get to as this app.

This app works as my “inbox” for these more powerful apps and is honestly the most useful app I have on my phone because of it.

One small request: it would be good to be able to have Quick Draft on share list for links rather than having to copy and paste.
