Review: FromScratch

FromScratch is a simple scratch pad app.

  • Very Simple.
  • Cross-platform.
  • Open Source
  • Free.
  • Did I mention, simple?

As part of my regular workflow, I frequently open Notepad to take quick scratch notes or do quick text manipulations that a full featured application is overkill for.

FromScratch is a better looking version. I love it.

It actually took a day or so to get used to how little it does. However, it's exactly what I need. It just sits there and keeps your text ready for use elsewhere or deletion.

For my note-taking, I use OneNote. This does all my heavy lifting when it comes to notes. I describe a bit of how that works in other posts.
