Scratch — Your Quick-Input Notepad

By Karbon

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Scratch is a different kind of notepad. It launches lightning-fast, always ready for input. No fussing with file lists or file names. Just launch and start typing. It's the fastest way to get your ideas into your iPhone when you're on the go.

Once you’ve captured your ideas it’s time to put them somewhere. Send notes or even just parts of notes via email, Dropbox, iMessage, Twitter, Facebook or to your favorite text editor. Scratch supports a constantly-growing list of 3rd-party apps and services.

Your notes are free. Enable Dropbox Sync to access your Scratch notes on any Dropbox-enabled device and sleep well knowing your notes are backed up to the cloud.

Configure emails with predefined recipients and subjects and send them with one tap. Great for quickly emailing yourself notes or sending content to services like Evernote and Tumblr.

In addition to sync, create new files anywhere on your Dropbox or use the fantastic append feature to add a note's contents to an existing Dropbox file—great for adding to ongoing lists or journals.

With our Markdown toolbar, easily add all sorts of formatting to your note without having to remember all that syntax. Also, Markdown lists auto-continue for rapid list creation.

Create a myriad of custom keys for every occasion. Love to use the Emoji symbol for surfing? Make it a custom key!

Use Scratch in Launch Center Pro or anywhere else you'd like that supports URL schemes. ("scratch://" to launch, "scratch://new" for a new note or "scratch://new?text=anything" for a pre-populated note.)

Other features:
+ Always launch with a new note
+ Tap to open URLs and phone numbers when the keyboard is down
+ TextExpander support (including fill-ins)
+ Word and character counts

What's New in Version 2.2

Enjoy all those extra pixels!

More iOS 8 features are coming soon, but we wanted to get this update to you as quickly as possible.

As always, find us on Twitter @ScratchByKarbon and please take a moment to rate the app. Thanks for your support!

Customer Reviews

Love this app, but it needs a tune-up

This app works exactly the way I want it to, but lately, on iPhone 6/iOS 8.3, it's been showing some bugs, particularly the keyboard disappearing in certain situations. Also feels like it's launching slower than it used to. Again, this app is exactly what I need, it could just use an update.

Best Quick Note Ever

There are not words for how much I use, like, endorse or support this app. It's awesome. The Dropbox and Evernote sync have been indispensable.

Really hoping they'll update to include a widget for the new iOS, but either way, I will still use this app.

Simple & Excellent

Great app. Quickly and easily capture notes with great flexibility in output options. Quick update to support iPhone 6 and iOS 8. I just wish it were universal.
