PhatWare Corporation is releasing PenCommander 1.5, a stand-alone application that features a powerful scripting technology and is now enhanced to support Microsoft Windows based Tablet and Ultra-Mobile PCs.
PenCommander allows users to employ the pen to call up commands that can control Tablet PCs and UMPCs, such as editing documents, inserting often-repeated text into documents and launching applications. To execute a PenCommand, simply write a PenCommand name on the PenCommander input panel.
PenCommander can be used for entering repetitive data, accessing frequently used applications and documents, inserting time, date and signature, and overall extending Tablet PC and UMPC functionality and user's productivity. It provides a simple and fast way to access functions that typically take longer to complete.
In addition to support for Microsoft Windows based UMPCs, PenCommander 1.5 also includes an updated scripting engine, which supports new user-level functions and improved performance. Most commonly used keyboard shortcuts and PenCommands can now be assigned to single stroke gestures. The application supports 32 gestures.
PenCommander 1.5 has a new customizable user interface for Visual PenCommander, which provides an IDE-like environment for creating and testing new PenCommander scripts. PenCommander's input panel can be made semi-transparent, allowing a user to view other applications' windows under the panel.
