A note to german-speaking visitors: Die deutschsprachigen Seiten finden Sie hier!

Welcome to my homepage dedicated to my software for the Newton.

I bought one of the first German Newton Message Pads and loved the concept right from the start. But there where also a couple of things which made the daily work with this very first Newton impractical. So I ordered the Newton Toolkit (the final version wasn't released at that time) to develop utilities that adapt the Newton to my personal needs.

With Newton OS2.0 many things changed to the better and it became much more fun working with the Newton. But for me the user interface of the built-in applications still lacked in some areas. That's why I wrote a set of utilities that are suited for my (but not only my) needs better than the built-in solutions.

Probably my best-known utility is i++ which found lots of users. In a survey by Planet Newton it ranked in the top ten of all Newton software titles.

WittyKeys provides the same functions as i++ but not as a popup-menu but as the user-definable keyboard shortcuts for the NOS2.1 keyboard.

The third utility with the same function set is Backyard. This is a backdrop application where these action can be assigned to on-screen buttons. Additionlly it features a virtual pinboard.

A different type of application (which at least in Germany became nearly as popular as i++ is AddressAccess. This program is a fully compatible replacement to the build-in names and offers improved searching, viewing and editing of contacts.

Finally there are many other utilities like FreeBack a minimalistic, heap-saving backdrop application, Wunschzettel a smart checklist-manager or XChange a currency converter.

Finnally let me express my hope that you will enjoy at least some of my programms - hopefully that much that you will gladly register some of them one day :-)
