Rough Draft started with Mac, but I'm really excited to write with RD on iOS since the focused nature of an iPhone/iPad better match the focus needed for drafting–not editing–than a multi-tasking Mac. Also, when you have a bluetooth keyboard and iPad there's no mouse for idle hands to wander to when my mind is wandering looking for a word. That's my biased … See more

I beta tested this when it was a *rough* Mac app with a fantastic team working hard to nail the experience and they did.

I found that using Rough Draft was a chance to take a fresh look at my own writing process – when editing was taken out of the equation, I had the opportunity to really think about how I write, and how I capture ideas. Though initially it was frustrating to get used to (I like to edit as I go), ultimately the experience was hugely rewarding for the way it ta… See more

Someone very wise once told me he gets up and writes around 4AM because the editor in him wakes up at 8. I think Rough Draft has the potential to help solve our self-censorship and allow us to get our ideas out faster. Not sure how much writing I do on mobile, but definitely going to try.
