Actually there were several ideas. And anyone could use the current
version. If you don't like any upgrades, one is free to not use them.
That is one nice thing about such apps you can choose to use older
versions if you have a problem with the newer versions.

The only real problem with Geeksafe is that there are ways for someone
to get in and steal anything they want if they got your Newton even if
the password features were enabled. Granted the average the thief is
not going to know how, but still why take the chance if the program can
be upgraded to eliminate this?
