Interact Scratchpad is a tool to easily and quickly 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!

Interact sits in your menu bar, or is available in the "Share" contextual (right-click) menu on text selections. Simply type or paste in text snippets of contact information, and Interact will parse it in complete contact records.

Interact automatically recognizes many common contact values, including names, email, addresses, phone numbers, company names. Insert simple tags to mark additional values. Recognized values appear in bold.

Interact works with your system contacts account, so no configuration is required.

Once text is entered, the resulting information, you can:

* Preview the resulting contact card.
* Create a new contact with the information.
* Add the values to an existing contact record.
* Export a vCard format version (without the need to add it to your Contacts).

Great Time Saver - This little app saves me tons of time. One thing I wish it would do, however, is automatically recognize a name formated like this: Smith, John. I have to manually fix this each time. Otherwise, it’s awesome.

Interact should be built into MacOs - This brings to MacOs what has always been lacking in the native Contacts app. Cut & paste some contact info (e.g. address, names, telephones, emails, titles etc.) into Interact and in quickly and accurately parses this into a structured Contact record. This can become a New Contact or update an existing contact. When you use this you’re living in the future.

Flawless. Flawless on iOS too. - I first bought this for iOS and found it to be indispensable. It enhances the iOS experience to real utility. Why not enjoy the same elevation on OS X? Indeed, why not.
