When I reviewed CaliGrapher I mentioned PenCommander andsaid I would review it. Well, here it is. PenCommander is a cooltool for your Tablet PC that allows you to execute commands by writing. The program makes it easy for you to:

  • Insert repetitive text
  • Launch applications
  • Edit text
  • Open documents
  • And more!

PenCommander, by PhatWare Corporation, is like a macro program inthat you can "program" commands that you can run over and over again.The ability to launch programs, open documents, and insert large amountsof text with just a few pen strokes is a real benefit.

PenCommander comes with some handy commands already defined foryou. The program also comes with Visual PenCommander which is aninterface that makes it easy to create PenCommander scripts. On top ofall this you can also assign PenCommander commands to nearly fifty (50)buttons, which gives you even more options. In testing out the program Ifound there was very little it couldn't do.

PenCommander, by PhatWare Corporation, is a powerful tool for theTable PC. The interface comes with 12 "skins" and you can also make yourown. The program also supports Windows Vista. So, if you have a TabletPC and you'd like to get the most out of it, I'd recommend givingPenCommander a try. I like it so much that it's one of my Dr. File Finder Favorites! Check it out foryourself. I recommend it!
