We've covered Drafts for iOS in the past, and it is now available on macOS!

Drafts is where text starts and is intended to be the first app you think of when wanting to input text. Just open Drafts and start writing. Once in Drafts, you can decide where to send your text using the Share sheet or copy and paste. With Drafts Pro, you can sync your drafts using iCloud, so use Drafts on the iPhone or iPad and your text will be waiting for you when you sit at your Mac.

Drafts for iOS has an extensive library of Actions that allow you to integrate with a huge number of apps and perform seemingly limitless multi-step tasks. Actions have yet to be implemented on the Mac version, but it's still a hugely powerful application as it stands.

I use iA Writer, so I wasn't too interested until you got to the part about saving versions and moving blocks of text. I can see this being useful for drafting long letters or other pieces of text.
