ruff is your pocket-sized best friend that aims to make writing on the go fun and sharing it fast & easy. It's a single sheet of text with your progress automatically saved and restored between sessions — no file management to worry about here! You can set aside (aka stash) text to come back to later via a left swipe. Or you can pass it on (aka share) via the FAB.

ruff doesn't want (or need) to replace your text editor, to-do app etc. With its original blend of utility & versatility, ruff is the ideal springboard for all your writing on the go: drafts, notes, lists, ideas, thoughts etc. It's a pleasure to write in ruff, and effortless to move the writing out 💪

Throw a bone 🦴 by upgrading to ruff+ to unleash the following:

• Gain full screen estate by removing ads

• Set aside (aka stash) as much text as you like (as opposed to the basic 10)

This app has been quite amazing at writing down a quick note or if you want to put down something in long form. The material styling is fantastic and feels great to use and it just feels good to start typing...

Best text editing app, by far. I know this is a ton to ask, but I'd love to see this on web someday...
