Today Agile Tortoise released a new Mac App, Interact Scratchpad (website)(Mac App store). One of the best features on the Interact for iOS app is the scratchpad, where you can paste any address-related clump of text and the application sorts it out for you. It’s way faster than manually adding a contact and now that same scratchpad is available in the menu bar on on your Mac.
In addition to helping me sort out somebody else’s poorly formatted address information, the Interact Scratchpad is also an easy way to capture address information on your Mac as someone gives it to you over the telephone. You don’t have to fiddle with clicking on fields. Just type in the text and let the app do the rest.
When you’re done, you can share the contact data into your contact database. You can even pick which Contacts Group, the new contact goes in.
Not surprisingly, Agile Tortoise, did a great job with this app. I bought it as soon as it went on sale. Check out the developer’s video below.
