HP-48/49/50 emulation on iOS
I'm a longtime user of m48 and m48+ on iOS, but today I noticed the apps weren't working any more. I switched to a new phone last week, and apparently the data files used by these apps weren't transferred over, and the servers from which the apps load the ROMs, skins, help files, etc. appear to be down.

I sent an email to the author this morning, but given that his apps have disappeared from the App Store as well, I'm not holding out much hope of being able to use them again.

So I turn to the Forum for advice: what do you recommend for RPL calculator emulation on iOS? I'm interested in 48G *and* 49g+/50g emulation, but it doesn't have to be in one app; I used to use m48 for 48G emulation and m48+ for 49g+ emulation, and that arrangement worked fine. Any advice or insights would be most welcome.

Facing the same problem I only found i48, which emulates the 48G but cannot load external progs or libs.
I also found HCalc lite cute because looking like my good old 28s, but I did not unlock the premium features.

Thanks! i48 looks like a decent m48 replacement.

There doesn't seem to be anything that emulates a 49g+/50g now. That's a shame...

Check out Emu50g. At $8.99 it isn't super cheap but I thought it was as worth it. I just used it the other day to run the sum of three cubes solution for 42Smile

Ooh, that looks promising. I'll give it a try. Thanks!

I'll tell the author he should update the app's keywords in his App Store listing. It's a bit unfortunate that it isn't found when you search for HP 50g. Smile
