[] North Richland Hills, Texas - Agile Tortoise today is proud to announce the release of Interact Scratchpad 1.0 for Mac. Interact Scratchpad for Mac brings the popular Scratchpad feature of Agile Tortoise's Interact contact manager app for iPhone and iPad to the Mac for the first time. Interact Scratchpad is the quick, easy way to create rich, complete contact records from plain text on the Mac. Copy text from email signatures, web pages, or any document, and let the Interact Scratchpad turn it into a contact for you, without the clumsy fiddling required to create contacts in the Mac's built-in Contact's app.

* Automatic recognition of common contact values including names, addresses, email, phone numbers, URLs and more
* Simple tagging system to mark additional fields, notes and assign groups
* Works directly with your system contact accounts, no configuration needed
* Create new contacts in your default system contact account from the parsed text
* Add to existing contacts, appending notes or additional fields
* Preview before committing updates
* Share generated contact data as importable vCard file - without the need to add the contact to your contact list. Great for creating ad-hoc vCard files with partial contact information
* Touch bar support for easy tagging
* Configurable global hot key for quick access

System Requirements
