Application Switcher for the Apple IIGS
Requires: 2MB RAM (4MB recommended)
Ever wish you could easily cut and paste between Formulate and AppleWorks GS?
Ever wish you could pop into the Finder for some quick file maintenance while
in a word processor, or unpack Shrinkit archives without leaving your
communications program? Ever wish your IIGS was just a little bit more
like a Macintosh?
Well wish no more - Switch-It! is here!
Switch-It! allows the user to load many programs into memory at once and
to switch between those programs instantly. Switch-It! was the first
multi-application product for the IIGS - and is still the best!
Compare these features:
All told, the competition may look more like a Macintosh, and we give
them credit for that - but the IIGS is not a Macintosh. Switch-It!
was carefully engineered to work with the maximum number of applications
and specifically with the IIGS's capabilities and limitations in mind.
- Switch-It!'s Stack Sharing feature means that big programs like
AppleWorks GS or HyperCard won't take "bank 0" memory from other programs.
Only Switch-It! allows you to use both AppleWorks GS and HyperCard at the
same time. Many other program combinations are possible only with Switch-It!
because of its Stack Sharing.
- Switch-It! works with virtually any desktop and graphics application,
even those that do not follow Apple's guidelines. Also, Switch-It!'s
features work with existing IIGS programs - no programs need to be changed
by the programmer to work with Switch-It!. This means that you can continue
to use the software you use now, without having to pay even more for
- Switch-It!'s user interface is consistent across all applications -
you switch between programs with a single menu located at the right edge of
the menubar. There is no difference between a 320 mode or 640 mode
application, nor is there need to constantly juggle windows because the
IIGS' screen is too small.
- Switch-It! works with more applications than the competition - For example, all
DreamWorld products including DreamGrafix and DuelTris.
- Switch-It! is compatible with GNO/ME. Run it from GNO to get real pre
tive multitasking and multiple desktop applications - the best of both worlds!
- Switch-It! switches between programs in a snap, even on a IIGS without
an accelerator card. When you switch programs in Switch-It!, the screen
isn't redrawn from scratch - if you're an AppleWorks GS user, you know how
long this can often take!
- Switch-It! comes with three NDAs to help to use multiple applications
better - a ScrapBook to make cutting and pasting between some applications
easier, and a place to put often used clippings - ClipIt, which lets the
user cut a section of any graphics screen into the IIGS clipboard -
and Memory Bar, which helps the user keep track of memory usage.
These are included because we know you don't want gee-whiz, you want to
get work done.
- Switch-It! was created right here in the U.S., which means that
technical support direct from the authors is only a phone call away.
So what are you waiting for? Order Switch-It! today!
