One of my favorite things about 37signals’s Backpack service is that it offers a rich API with read/write access to just about everything you can store in it. My thanks to Stand Alone for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed to promote Satchel, their Backpack client for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Satchel lets you create and edit Backpack pages, notes, and reminders; lets you update your Backpack status and journal; supports multiple Backpack accounts; and more. Satchel even lets you edit Backpack items offline.

I use Satchel, and find it particularly handy for editing and managing checklists. Version 1.2 was just released this week and includes a bunch of performance and multiple-account improvements. The full version is $9.99, and you can try its read-only sibling Satchel View for free.
