CrozzWord was awarded 1st place in Entertainment/Educational/Multimedia category in JPDA 2002 Application Developers Contest for Zaurus and iPaq sponsored by Insignia Solutions, HP, Intel, Metrowerks, Sharp, Softbank Publishing and Sun Microsystems.

With CrozzWord, a user can display, fill-in and solve crossword and cryptic puzzles, from Samples or local system, or more importantly, from an extensive categorized collection of public sites over a network; over 30,000 puzzles are accessible, in six formats, including secure access to New York Times. A user can customize application and puzzle appearance, add sites to Favorites or other categories, selectively check/reveal answers, skip to incomplete/incorrect guesses, and save partial games or archive remote puzzles for later local use. Online help. Shareware registration.

Versions available for many platforms, including Windows, Macintosh, Zaurus (and eventually PocketPC, Linux, ...). CrozzWord requires Java runtime support.

For other versions (Newton, JavaScript, Waba) of many of these apps, see below.


Newt's Cape icon Newt's Cape 2.1e2/2.0r
1.x/2.x; web browse; create books with text, graphics, links, tables and forms from HTML documents via TCP (2.x: using Newton Internet Enabler (NIE)) or in your Notepad, Inbox, Newtworks or over a serial connection. (co-developed with Greg Simon) [shareware]
versions available to registered users in Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Russian
in additon to support for .pkg and GIF built-in to Newt's Cape, there are some plugins/helperApps:
2.x; converts/displays .jpg, .jpeg image files
2.x; extracts files from .zip files, and converts/displays .bmp image files
2.x; displays Palm Pilot DOC text files and ImageViewer graphics
2.x; plays audio files(.wav,.aiff,.au) via SimpleMail audio extensions

2.x; HTML list authoring tool using Notes outlines, converts Notes/Newtworks docs to HTML, saves books to HTML or Newtworks; add "text routing" to regular and help books, e.g., Beam, Mail, Speak (former RouteBook functionality).
WabaTester 1.0o
2.x; runs Java(Waba) applets
noted here mainly for coolness/completeness -- it's more practical to install/run a prebuilt Newton .pkg
however, if you have the WabaVM, and waba and wextra libraries installed, if the app uses the Waba subset of Java, and its .jar file is uncompressed, it is possible to run applets directly from web (e.g., Worm or any of my apps)
