Reflex™for the Newton Introduced at Macworld Expo


Casady & Greene, Inc., developers of award-winning software for over eleven years, will introduce Reflex™, a powerful shortcut-utility for the Apple Newton™Personal Digital Assistant, at MACWORLD Expo in Boston, August, 1996. Casady & Greene's booth will be located in the Bayside Expo Center this year, Booth 1400.

Reflex is a productivity tool that will save time - every time the Newton is used. By accessing the task menus that come with Reflex, or by creating personally-customized menus, a user can simplify complex jobs and drastically reduce the time needed to perform many common Newton tasks. With Reflex, users can place all their frequently used applications, such as the Styles Palette or Pocket Quicken™in one of three easy-to-access menus.

Reflex menus can also contain frequently used "Actions" or shortcuts to cut down on performance time. Reflex ships with 44 pre-set shortcuts and users can customize their own. Shortcuts perform tasks in a single tap that would otherwise require complex multi-taps. Some common actions include Beam my Card, Connection via Appletalk, Go to last note, New Meeting, Receive Beam, Print Queued Items, and many more.

Third party developers can create their own "Actions" or shortcuts to work with their programs. The actions that ship with Reflex are based upon applications and system services found in every Newton device, but Reflex is completely expandable. New actions can be loaded at any time which can be application-specific.

Donald Beirdneau, Executive Vice-president for Operation at C&G;, states, "The Newton simplified your life, Reflex simplifies your Newton."
