Evaluation time: 30+ days (Jan. 20, 2007 to the present (Feb. 19, 2007))
Tested on: HW2 TI-89 with AMS 2.09
Pros: Great if you find the default key repeat rate annoyingly slow
Cons: No way to fine-tune the key repeat to your personal tastes

A frequent complaint I have heard is that the TI-89's auto keyboard repeat rate (the frequency at which keys like the arrow keys repeat when held down) is too slow. It is also too slow for my taste. This program solves this problem by speeding up the keyboard, and keeping it sped up even when the calculator is turned off (many programs like this only work while the calculator is still on). It works great.
There isn't really much that I think can be added to the program, except for the fact that a way to actually adjust the key delay and repeat rates (like some similar programs allow) would have been nice. If you don't like the exact key repeats that this program sets up, it seems you're out of luck unless you edit the source code. I think this feature is essential for programs like this to ensure their flexibility, and this is the only reason my Features and Overall ratings aren't 10/10.
Note: Before using a TSR like this, be sure to get and install HW3Patch or h220xtsr first if you have a Hardware 2.00 or higher TI-89; otherwise, you may experience stability problems. With h220xtsr, this TSR has so far never crashed my calculator.
