Version for Tablet?

Postby Alexguv » Wed Oct 12, 2011 5:08 pm

Is there a version of the program available for the tablets? That's what everyone seems to be moving to.

The tablet is a different operating system, and unless the tablet has a FULL Windows emulator, the market might be too small to incur the cost of converting the software to a tablet's OS starting with some version of Apple operating system. Please consider that the Tablet might be using a different version of Apple's operating system, too.

There has been some success with others who are running their PC or laptop running Linux with this program but required available bits of software that turns the Linux system to add a Windows emulator to run TLDCN. Maybe the tablet will add a Windows emulator?

I'm not sure I agree your statement that everyone is moving towards a tablet anymore than a Windows emulator will be added to the tablet. There are plenty of us how might ADD a tablet to our communications tool chest, but there will be far more that stick with a PC or laptop running Windows which is right where Undertow and Trailer Life's niche currently exist and keep these as separate tools. I'm sure one of these days they may add this support but for now it seems the revenue stream versus the cost of development aren't there yet.

I recommend you contact Trailer Life and ask for this capability. If enough people start to ask, then something might be done but this will not be an overnight addition. I'm guessing there would be a significant development cycle to add any other operating system support. Then UnderTow would have to consider if they can support another version of the same program.

I did contact them. The went on and on about their iphone/ipad app that's already available. I tried to explain to them that the app they are talking about is a great quick finder for Campgrounds, but it's not a trip planner, but they wouldn't listen to me. When I finally was able to ask them the DVD product, but for a tablet, they said, not in the foreseeable future :-(
