iOS: Bring Back an Email Draft—Quickly

Sometimes when you’re composing a message on your iOS device, you realize that you’ll have to finish your e-mail later. After saving your message as a draft, it’s quite frustrating to then have to navigate through your mailboxes to find the appropriate Drafts folder, especially if you’ve got a million mail accounts like I do and often compose messages from different addresses.

Gotta keep my secret identities secret using separate e-mail accounts, you know.

So to avoid having to try to find your draft, just touch and hold on the Compose button from any window within the iOS Mail app.

When you do, your last saved draft will pop back up, ready to be edited—no sleuthing required. Much better than searching through things, isn’t it?
