About the App
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.

With its original blend of utility & versatility, ruff is the ideal springboard for all your writing on the go: drafts, notes, ideas, thoughts etc. It's a pleasure to write in ruff, and effortless to move the writing out 💪

Available in 🌍🌎🌏 Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Russian & Spanish.
