The subscription is for 2 PCs and 2 Mobile devices, is there anyway this could be changed to allow an M1 MacBook to be counted as a PC rather than a mobile device?

I ask as I do not have access to a Windows Computer for use with Skydemon

How do you use Skydemon on M1, installed the mobile iOS Version with the usual hack? How do you suppose should the software be able to tell it is on a Macbook, when it really is a mobile application running by surprise on a laptop computer?

M1 Macs can load any IOS app without doing anything special - no VMs or emulators required and it is very easy to install.
SkyDemon works very well on it but it is a real nuisance that it thinks it is on a mobile device in licensing terms - how quaint!

Good Morning,

is there any update on this topic?

On my MacBook I actually use SD through parallels environment for planing my trips. What I dislike is the speed of that solution. I made the experience that the iOS Version is much more powerful und is running better and more smooth.

Unfortunately there are some issues running SD on an MacBook with M1 chip. The biggest pain is regarding the print features of the pilot log and the charts from the AIPs. You can use the overlay function but you are not able to print - and to be honest, I prefer having a printed approach chart with me.

Are there any plans to fix that?

I think the future of Apple will be the silicon platform and with your current iOS Product, you do already have a really good product which makes you able to provide a rock solid version for the new generation of Apple desktop Hardware by fixing the existing issues.

I would be very thankful If you can address that task to one of your developers.

SkyDemon is the best solution on the market for VFR Pilots. Thank you for providing us that great tool. I do not want to seem ungrateful  but as customers it is our job to push you forward ;-)

I also have an M1 Mac so like the sound of this and would support.

Loosely related, it would be good to be able to designate a (in my case iPad/IOS) device as the 'prime' which would never log out.

Hello,

i also like to know if there can be any solutions. I use 1 Licence for my iPad an one for my iPhone as backup-option. It will be helpful to use it also on my Mac M1 as iPad app, so i can save the windows emulator and system to buy and install.
