* AppleScript Applications
Our second book, which includes a Demo version of FaceSpan 2.1, AppleScript 1.1 runtime, and more on the included CD ROM. It's now available in stores, and can be ordered directly from AP Professional.
* BASIC for the Newton
Our first book, which includes a Demo version of NS BASIC. This book can also be ordered directly from AP Professional. The Demo NS BASIC on the original bundled disk only works with 1.3x Newtons. The book now includes an updated version of the Demo that works with all versions (including Newton 2.0). If you have a Newton with the 2.0 operating system and the Demo NS BASIC does not run with it, you can get a new version of the Demo disk from AP Professional.
Both books can be ordered on the web from AP Professional,, and Developer Depot.

Calendar Marker 3.00 Mac (.hqx)
The link below points to the last Pre-Newton 2.0 version (2.01)
Calendar Marker 2.01 Mac (.hqx) version
(This is a link to the old 1.2 version at AMUG  site)
$10 Shareware, Places marks on the month display in the Dates application, so you can see which days have morning, afternoon, or day notes (days with day notes have a box drawn around them).

Thanks to all the folks who've paid their shareware fees. Calendar Marker is faster, and more configurable now. You don't need to see the week numbers, or can only see week numbers, for instance!

Here's the ReadMe  file for Calendar Marker 2.01.

This is Calendar Marker (all options enabled, with Boxed day notes) in action:
