Newton never dies!

"If you are looking for good Newton software that is still updated and supported, you are perfectly right here!"

The Newton OS version of our "bestsellers" will be updated in the future. We try to port all the new features of the WindowsCE and PalmOS versions to the Newton OS version too.


VoiceNotes turns the Newton into a full-featured digital dictating machine with powerful management capabilities. Whenever you want to capture an idea you just had, just pop out the Newton pull down the power switch twice and start recording your idea. No need to power-up the Newton fumbling out the pen and starting the software.


MobileBackup is the only backup solution for NewtonOS, which supports automatic backups. After you have chosen once WHAT to save, WHERE and WHEN, MobileBackup will perform this job at predefined times automatically.



Here are some little applications, tools and patches, which can be downloaded and used for free.

Have fun.

IndexFixer is a little patch, which fixes a quite seldom bug. This bug show its ugly face when you tap on Extras and get the Error -48013. At this point no program on the Newton can be started or installed. Without IndexFixer you have to erase the whole internal memory, to get ride of this error.

IndexFixer must be installed on a memorycard, from which it starts automatically, if the error accource.

That's why you should download IndexFixer now, and keep it on a memorycard. In emergancy cases just but in this card, and everything is fine again.

XNewtBook is an extension for the Newton Book Reader (NBR). The NBR is missing a feature to markup sides and to make a note for this mark.

XNewtBook supplements this feature, and makes your marks+notes "portable" because it allows to copy them on a memory card. In addition there is a search function to find a certain string in the notes of the open book or any installed book.
