With a user-created template system,
Transcriptionist allows flexible data capture on the Newton which in turn may be used to
generate notes, reports and summaries by entering only select pieces of information. After
a user creates a template system and a form, drop down lists help users insert information
into their document easily. The latest update fixed a problem which occurred when
importing duplicate templates. Credit: Tactile Systems.

TimeCards is an application
specifically designed for tracking time spent working with different projects. During the
development of TC rapid, efficient entry of data was the driving requirement leading to an
interface that requires 1 to 4 taps on the screen to enter Time record. When time entries
are added to TC comments can be appended as well. The newst version of timecards includes
a fix for a reported startup error. Credit: Volker Deffner.
GeekSafe 0.9b is a handy freeware application
which lists all those private passwords and numbers that you wouldn't want to fall into
the wrong hands. GeekSafe is PIN secure, small, and best of all -- it's free! If you've
used a previous beta version of GeekSafe, use the included cleaner before installing the
latest. Credit: Newtopia.
TimePak is a large digital clock which utilized
voices via SayTime. The clock voices available include include languages ranging from

voice archive contains a high-quality version and one that is smaller in size, for older
machines or a Newton lacking in memory. The Wei Xu (English) voice is included with the
basic TimePak download. Credit: Saint John Morrison.
