NewtonScript was a programming language for the Apple Newton platform. It supported object-oriented programming and used a dynamic type system. The language was optimized for the input and data types common on mobile devices of that era, helping developers efficiently create applications for mobile computing — enabling pen-based interaction with early personal digital assistants (PDAs). NewtonScript is no longer in widespread use but provided significant influence on subsequent generations of languages designed for handheld devices.
