Anyone running SmartSDR on a 5S iPhone? Screen is only 4" diagonal, and I'm worried that I the display will be too small to be usable.

I used it on a 5S. It works. The actual screen is minimal and you can set a smaller slice flag if you want.

Right now I use an iPhone X and an iPhone 7 which is my work phone. It's actually not bad on the iPhone 7 either.

I agree, I have a 5C that I've tested it on and it is quiet usable. The recent update greatly improves the dragging of the passband area of the panafall to QSY, which was the only area I'd found a bit challenging on the smaller screen.

It is not bad on a 7, but large fingers are not too helpful. The Ipad Pro is very nice.

Thanks Ria, Matt & Bill.  I installed SmartSDR iOS this evening, and it works great on the 5S.
