Rapidweaver on iPad Pro

(John Tyler) #1

Is there any intention to release an iPad Pro version of Rapidweaver

(Robert Ziebol 🖖🏼) #2

The main reason this was always answered “No” when the iPad has first come out (and since) is that there is no way to get 3rd Party plugins/themes/stacks on the iPad. Now that RapidWeaver allows you to store them on places like Dropbox and other online areas, not sure if this is still an issue. Only @dan would be able to answer for sure though.

Also, since they are two different operating systems (Apple is not merging them) you’d need to purchase RW for iPad separately, plus purchase plugins via the iOS app store. So you’d be purchasing everything twice; once for macOS (desktop/laptop), once for iOS (iPad/iPhone).

Plus, there’d have to be enough demand for both to justify the financial investment in developing both.

Don’t think it’s the storing of them that would be the issue. Apple doesn’t let anything “run” on iOS that isn’t from the App Store, and gone through their “approval process“(and Apple’s 30%+ cut). Since at least “plugins” comes out of Xcode, they would probably need to come from the App Store.

As Ben pointed out I wouldn’t think there’s a enough of a market for it.

I’m sure we’ll see more sofisticated solutions (than screen sharing) connecting MacOS and iOS during the next couple of years…
