Two plain text tools

Although my time to serendipitously (or rather randomly) browse the web is very limited the other day I stumbled upon two very interesting applications which make capturing and managing data in plain text much easier.

First is Scratchpad – the name says it all. A very simple tool to quickly capture thoughts, ideas and other information while at your computer and then get it saved in plain text file. I already see it could nicely fit into my workflow.

Second tool is something to help you organise your plain text files. Text Haven is simple plain text editor and file organiser which supports Markdown and wiki linking and lets you keep tabs on your notes. What sounds most interesting about this application is that it allows for managing folders of text files and the neat preview mode.

Thanks to Taking Note blog for sharing these tools in the first place.
