OrangeGuava for the Tablet PC

I finally got my hands on the trial of OrangeGuava. There has been a lot of raving about it on so I decided to check it out for myself.

Tom Clarkson is building his app around much of the feedback he gets from the community and it shows. He is very responsive to errors and improvements. Just last night, he turned around 3 new builds.

OrangeGuava lets you ink all over your desktop, create new desktops, activate applications from your ink, etc. For example, I can ink Rob Bushway, right click the ink and choose Export: Search and a Google search will kick off. I can ink a note on the desktop, right click the ink, and choose Export Plain Text to create an Outlook Note. Ink some more, copy all the ink, and paste it in to Journal. There is a lot more to it than that, but that is a quick wrap-up.

One recommendation: do an Add / Remove on Office 2003 and make sure that everything is set to run from your computer. There are some pieces that OrangeGuava relies on that will cause an error if not installed.

We are going to have a full featured review of OrangeGuava on in the next several weeks from some power users. Meanwhile, download a 60 day trial and come over to to talk about it.

BTW: There is some great new stuff coming....
