Notes2Notes V-2.1b3

Notes2Notes is a Windows program that synchronizes Newton notes with Microsoft Outlook 97, 98 & 2000. The creator of Notes2Notes is Brad Smith. However, Brad has given me development rights to Notes2Notes since I developed V-2.0. Thanks Brad! Version 2.0 has many new features and has had the serial communication improved to work just as well on Newt 120/130's as well as Newt 2100's. It uses the Sloup communication package by Steve Weyer on the Newton side.

Screen Shots

This is the main screen for Notes2Notes, (without the view pane active). Notes can be sorted by title, folder or date using the column tabs.


This is the Note view. The example shows show a Note I wrote on my Newton to help me remember how to make pancake batter.


This is Sloup Talk. Sloup Talk allows experienced Sloup users to send commands to the Newton and for the results to be displayed. This example show how you can retrieve a list of packages installed on your Newton.



Notes2Notes was written to be compatible with Win9x, WinNT and Win2K. It has been tested using Outlook 97, 98 and 2000.
