PenCommander for Tablet PCs includes several customizable features and increases productivity.

PhatWare Corporation, a leading provider of software products and professional services for mobile and desktop computers, announced today the launch of PenCommander for Tablet PCs. The new stand-alone application features a new powerful 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 in almost limitless ways, 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 the best tool 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.

"PhatWare is pleased to add PenCommander for Tablet PCs to our line of productivity solutions," said PhatWare President Stan Miasnikov. "This stand-alone application promises to make computing easier for those who mainly use the pen and a Tablet PC."

The new application also includes Visual PenCommander Integrated Development Environment (IDE), which provides a rich and easy-to-use 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.

"We are excited to see PenCommander launched as part of PhatWare’s line of products, and believe its short command productivity features will further enhance and extend the Tablet PC user experience," said Susan Cameron, group product manager for Tablet PC at Microsoft Corp.

PenCommander for Tablet PCs costs $29.95, and can be purchased directly from the PhatWare Web site or any of PhatWare’s network of authorized retailers. For more information about PenCommander for Tablet PCs or any of PhatWare’s other productivity solutions for mobile or desktop PC use, visit
