It's the Names app. It was a follow up to a reply on my earlier post
which explains the reason for wanting this:


I'm not a Newton developer by any stretch of the imagination - though
I do have the "Developing for Newton with Macintosh" book, and have
managed to get 2/3 of the way through it on a couple of occasions
before my time was stolen away by other things. With a few pointers
I'd be happy to try having a go at this myself - though I wouldn't
suggest anyone hold their breath while waiting for me to produce
anything worthwhile.
