DRO on iPad
« on: February 22, 2020, 05:26:44 AM »
Hello all, having recently upgraded to a new tablet I now have a surplus 2012-vintage iPad.  I know that Yuriy's Tools has a nice solution for DROs with Android tablets (or phones), but the iPad would be better for me, as it has a nice large display.  Does anyone know if there's a similar app available for the iPad please?

Sadly, Apple lock down the Bluetooth stack making it very hard for 3rd parties to develop apps for iPad along these lines.  Android tablets are so cheap it's hardly worth quibbling, if you must have DRO you could screen cast from an Android tablet.

 :palm:

Other than that the iPad is good for displaying drawings you are working with, or having the CCTV on so you can watch for the next tool delivery before the Mrs spots it !!!
Honour your mentors, and pay it forward.

Thanks - I also have some old Android phones so I guess use one of those.
