Interact Scratchpad for Mac →

I often create records in on my Mac from those blocks of text every adult has at the bottom of their emails. It involves a lot of copying and pasting back and forth, as I’ve found Data Detectors in Mail don’t often get things the way I want them.

Now there’s a Mac app that makes this common task a lot faster: Interact Scratchpad. Made by developer and part-time wizardry camp Agile Tortoise, its a menubar app that includes a text field. Copy that block of contact info into it, and it sorts out what’s what then allows you to add a new contact to your database quickly. Greg’s video shows it off nicely.

Interact Scratchpad is $4.99 on the Mac App Store. I’ve been super impressed with it, and I think you will be, too.
