Scratch, cloud-enabled word processing app, drops price to $1 for NaNoWriMo

While we await the release of webOS 2.0 and its promised QuickOffice suite (with upcoming editing features), let's not forget that we already have a native word processing app for webOS: Scratch, by No Insult Software. Not only is Scratch already up to version 1.4.1, but it supports importing/exporting from Google Docs and offers features such as in-document search, text formatting (bold/italic/underline), "real paragraphs" and style sheets among others. It can be used for everything from quick (and easily exportable) notes to writing and editing long documents.

Even better, Scratch is on sale at $1 (a 75% discount) for the entire month of November, in honor of NaNoWriMo, aka National Novel Writing Month. While writing an entire novel on a thumbboard may be an overly ambitious (not to mention painful) project, given the confirmation that webOS 2.0 will finally include Bluetooth keyboard support, and its $1 sale price, Scratch should be a must-buy for anyone who is or might want to be a writer.
