Communicate Lite

Send Article to a Friend

Communicate Lite may replace some of the abysmal programs currently bundled with modems. The communications program from Mark/Space Softworks uses a document-oriented approach along with support for Apple's Communications Toolbox, which allows users to add power by adding tools. Communicate Lite is available for bundling, and costs $49.95 for single copies direct from Mark/Space. A more-powerful version due this summer, Communicate, will add more communications tools, Apple events scripting for Frontier and AppleScript, automated virus detection, and integrated In and Out boxes that simplify file transfer.
