Interact Scratchpad for Mac

Turn text into Contacts!

Interact Scratchpad is the quick, easy way to create rich, complete contact records from plain text. Copy text from email signatures, web pages, or any document, and let the Interact Scratchpad turn it into a contact for you!

Create Contacts Easier with the Scratchpad

  • Create or update contacts by simply typing or pasting plain text into the Scratchpad.
  • Works directly with your system contact accounts, no configuration needed.
  • Save time with natural language parsing, which identifies names, emails, phone numbers, addresses, and other details in plain text, then automatically sorts them into the proper contact fields.
  • Simple tagging system to mark values in text for fields that cannot be automatically recognized.
  • Access the Scratchpad from your menu bar, via global hot key, or as a Share extension in the contextual (secondary click) menu on text selections system wide.

Why use Interact Scratchpad?

  • Easily create more complete contact records without clumsy field by field editing
  • Add notes and other details to existing contacts quickly.
  • Create ad-hoc vCard format files with specific contact details, without adding those contacts to your Contacts list.
  • Reuse texts to quickly create multiple similar contacts which share many values.


  • Support for macOS 10.12 Sierra (also compatible with OSX 10.11 El Capitan).
  • Touch Bar support.
  • Customizable global hot key (Shift-Command-1 default).
  • Share extension to send text selection to the Scratchpad from anywhere.
