PhatWare recently released PenCommander 2.0 for Windows Vista based Tablets and Ultra-Mobile PCs. This updated version offers many new features such as new PenCommander skins and it’s enhanced for Vista.
This is one of the many skins to choose from and users can also customize their own.
PenCommander 2.0 allows users to employ the pen to call up commands that can control Tablet PCs and UMPCs in almost limitless ways, such as editing documents, inserting often-repeated text into documents and launching applications. PenCommander scripts are executed by writing a PenCommand name on the PenCommander input panel. It’s a nice tool for entering repetitive data, accessing frequently used applications and documents, inserting time, date and signature and overall extending Tablet PC functionality.
PenCommander 2.0 new features:
- New PenCommander skins
- Updated scripting engine to allow for new user level functions and improved performance
- Ability to select a handwriting recognition engine, which is useful if multiple languages are being used
- Commonly used keyboard shortcuts and PenCommands can now be assigned to single stroke gestures
- New customizable user interface for Visual PenCommander
- Input panel can be made semi-transparent, allowing a user to view other applications’ windows under the panel
PenCommander 2.0 is available now for $29.95, but for a limited time you can get it for $19.95 here. Registered users of previous versions of PhatPad can upgrade the product at no cost. Keep checking back for my hands-on review of PenCommander 2.0, which I will be posting soon.
