Subject: Enhanced version of AppleScript scheduler released
Apps & More Software Design, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of
version 1.2 of Script Timer, an AppleScript scheduling application for both
Mac OS 9.2.1 and Mac OS X.
Script Timer lets you schedule the execution of OSA based scripts, such as
those created using AppleScript. It will run your scripts at any time on a
daily, weekly, weekdays only, monthly, or one time basis as well as at
regular intervals ranging from minutes to weeks. Script Timer has an
extremely small memory footprint and is designed to run unobtrusively in
the background. The program comes with several sample scripts that
illustrate the use of the program, including examples of Finder and third
party application scripting, and the use of parameterized scripts.
New features for version 1.2 include the following:
– the ability to run scripts both synchronously and asynchronously
– the ability of scripts to return data to be saved in the Script Timer log
– the ability to launch stay open script applets
– the ability to directly launch any application or open any file for which
the user has sufficient access privileges
– automatic detection of changes to the data file

Script Timer 1.2 is $10 trialware, with site and academic licenses also
available. Registered users of a previous version of Script Timer are
eligible for a free upgrade.
