HyperCard

A software package by Bill Atkinson for storage and retrieval of information on the Macintosh. It can handle images and is designed for browsing. The powerful customisable interactive user interface allows new applications to be easily constructed by manipulating objects on the screen, often without conventional programming, though the language HyperTalk can be used for more complex tasks.
