How to write and organize notes with Scratchpad in Mac

Scratchpad is an application for Mac OS X which can be called as the advanced version for TextEdit, the default notepad application in mac.
This application helps in organizing the notes in different pages you write, but you don’t need to waste time in organizing them as everything is done automatically and this saves lot of time.

How it works?
When you are in various topics and don’t want to save everything in different notepads and just increase the mess, here Scratchpad helps you by just organizing every note topic in different pages.

Some best features in Scratchpad

  • Supports rich text so you can customize your fonts and colors anyway you like.
  • Support for images and pictures – Only the Microsoft office’s Powerpoint does have this, not the normal notepad in Windows or Mac.
  • Lightweight – has everything you need without the bulk.
  • Multiple pages so you can organize your notes however you would like to
  • Automatic saving – Autosave option when you forget saving the file and something happens to your mac or the file.
  • Written in Cocoa to take advantage of Apple’s native API.
