PhatWare has released PenCommander for Tablet PCs, a stand-alone application featuring a new scripting technology which was first introduced as a part of PhatWare’s PenOffice handwriting recognition application.
PenCommander allows users to use the pen to call up commands that can control Tablet PCs, 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 is suitable for entering repetitive data, accessing frequently used applications and documents, and overall extending Tablet PC functionality and user’s productivity, providing a simple and fast way to functions that typically take longer to complete.
PenCommander interprets instructions from the commands’ definitions one by one until the end of the definition. The software has several predefined commands that allow users to launch Microsoft Windows applications, perform standard editing functions, add their signature and the time and date, and more.
The new application also includes Visual PenCommander Integrated Development Environment (IDE), which provides a rich user interface that allows users to create, edit and test PenCommand scripts. There is no limit to the amount of commands users can create with PenCommander. In addition to written commands, users can assign PenCommands to up to 50 custom buttons on the application’s skin. PenCommander includes 10 predefined skins and a comprehensive documentation to help users create their own skins from bitmap (.bmp) files, giving consumers a way to personalize the application.
PenCommander for Tablet PCs costs US$29.95, and can be purchased directly from the PhatWare web site.
