V2.0 - the next generation of a Newton-classic

With i++ you can customize the menu shown when tapping an "i-Button". Menu items can be included to open applications or perform other "special actions". Those info buttons are present in most Newton OS2.x applications, since it is a standard component of the 2.x user interface. So "your" special purpose menu will be reachable in most situations without getting in your way when you do not need it.

In my opinion i++ is a "natural" extention of the Newton2.x user interface using only standard user interface elements.

The following image shows how a customized i-menu might look like. Note that it is the menu belonging to the "Connection" dialog. Of course the additional items will also show up when tapping "i" in Notes, Names, In/Out, Dates, ...
