Macintosh OS 9 Freeware



I know there are plenty of people out there who still run OS 9 and earlier, so I made these old programs available for those folks.

Everything on this page was written in 680x0 or PowerPC assembly language. The result is a program that is super small, loads super fast and runs super fast.
Diccionario 3.1/2.07 -- Spanish-English dictionary application. Has a Find function that can be used to go from English to Spanish. Automagically resizes to fit different size screens. This is a fat application that requires System 7.0 or later. The application version is 3.1 and the data version is 2.07.
Now available as an iPhone app.
QuickLearner 2.7 -- Flash card learning program. Includes 24 Spanish lessons, state capitals and a multiplication table up to 10 x 10. Now also include files from chapters 1 through 17 of Living Language -- German. Uses plain text files so you can create your own lessons. Will work on some really old Macs.
FKEYRunApp Maker 1.0 -- Application that creates FKEYs that run applications or open documents. Also can manipulate FKEYs in the System file, applications or FKEY archives.
Function Key Enabler 1.4 -- System extension that maps FKEYs to function keys. Makes up to 40 FKEYs available, depending on how many function keys your keyboard has.
