Newton Tool Builds Custom Applications

Send Article to a Friend

Pinehill Software Corporation has announced a new version 3 of its AppGen software for Apple's Newton handheld organizers, scheduled to ship in early October. AppGen allows users to build customized complete applications for data management on any Newton.

The currently shipping AppGen 2.1 supports only one custom application at a time, though version 3 will allow multiple applications. It also lets users use previously entered data in calculations and offers more direct access to data transfer via the Newton Connection Kit.

AppGen development takes place entirely on the Newton MessagePad, so no external computer is required for programming. Setup is simple and intuitive, with an on-screen form that lets users specify field names, data types, and behaviors.

Currently, AppGen 2.1 is available for $49.95 ($69.95 for a bar-code-capable version). Those who purchase AppGen during September 1995 will receive a free upgrade to version 3, and a free copy of the company's FormulaGen tool for adding custom formulas to AppGen.

Pinehill's package includes step-by-step instructions for setting up a time-and expense-tracking application, though the software can clearly be used for data collection and management in almost any field, from inventory to farm management.
