Sorry for my lack of information. Yes a Newton Clock application that
speaks the current time and is preferably configurable so that you can
set the interval it speaks the time.

Speaks the current time when 5 minutes have elapsed.

I saw a website that said that Lunasuite was released to the public
domain, but my trial period expired and now it won't work. Is there
somewhere else I am supposed to register it? Or is the source available?

There probably isn't a "best" only a "best" for your particular setup
and preferences. Personally, I use StandAlone's freeze utilities. It
puts a "freeze" and a "thaw" option into the envelope menu, and can be
set to automatically thaw and run and app, and then, on quit,
re-freeze it. It works great on low-memory Newtons like the 120 or
2000, where you probably want to keep most non-integrated apps frozen
most of the time. However, I don't remember if other apps provide the
same function or not. I've been using this app for about a decade

OK, I'm curious. What are you guys putting on your cards??? I mean, a
gig??? I've got a 32meg, and I'm not anywhere near full-up. :-)

Jon, I don't need 1GB of space.  I want 32MB on a single card.  If I had
64MB, that would be idea.  But no, I don't need a Gig.  I want speed though
