Scrawl is a place to put those little notes you need for just a minute and then never want to see again. Where did you park the car? What's the ten-digit code to disarm the bomb? What gate do you need to meet your mother at?

Scrawl gives you a small space to write these notes, then helps you access them again quickly. You don't even need to open the app again!
- Includes a widget that can be added to your lock screen and Notification Center.
- Displays notes when you 3D Touch the app icon.
- Notes can be added and read back via Siri on iOS 11.

Scrawl isn't a complicated app. It's not even a particularly good app. It's just a place to put some text for a bit, and then look at it later. If that doesn't sell you on it, you probably don't want it. But if it _does_ sell you on it: good news! It's free! I'm not even going to sell your information to pay for it! Act quick to take advantage of this unlimited-time offer!

What’s New

Version 20.0

Hey there, everyone. In case you've forgotten who I am, I'm Geoff, the dev who writes really dumb release notes. Also I make this app. Shoulda led with that one, probably.

I totally spaced on updating this app for a few… years. I ended up releasing some other apps instead — check them out! Two out of three of them are good and also there’s Debigulator. And, in my defense, I was still updating Scrawl, I just kinda… kept those updates to myself. (Have y’all tried dark mode? It’s great.)

Anywhose, I figured it was time to break that streak and actually ship something. Scrawl 20.0 includes:
- Widget support for iOS 14 — place your notes on your home screen!
- An Apple Watch app, so you can take your notes on the go. More on the go. On the wrist.
- A share extension, making it easier to get notes into Scrawl in the first place.
- Multiple window support on iPad, so you can edit your notes alongside multiple other apps. Or just edit the same text side-by-side, I don’t know your life.
- A new, more-robust syncing system so things don’t get all busted so much.
- Dark mode. Still kinda can’t believe I never shipped that.

Hopefully, this is the return of more frequent updates. I imagine we’ll be seeing another one real soon, to support that thing it’s obvious this app should support. You know the one.

Useful. Surprised this isn’t a native iOS app. Thanks!

Sits between the big todo and Siri

This feels like a nice addition to my knowledge prosthetic system, for ephemeral short term notes. I'd say it sits in-between my massive todo list and trusting Siri.

Thanks! Good to hear that Scrawl fits in your existing system.
