Homepak, published in 1984 by Batteries Included, is an integrated application for the Atari 8-bit family and Commodore 64. It includes a word processor (Hometext), database (Homefind), and terminal communications program (Hometerm). Homepak was designed by Russ Wetmore (who previously wrote the game Preppie!) for Star Systems Software, Inc. The Commodore 128 version was ported by Sean M. Puckett and Scott S. Smith.
Ahoy! warned "don't expect more than you pay for", stating that while HomeText was "quite nice" and HomeTerm was "wonderful", HomeFile was "very disappointing. Anyone who needs to use the database for even a mildly sophisticated operation will be frustrated and confused ... a total mess".
