W4AX's (who I gather is an alpha tester sort of fellow) nice video of K6TU's new SmartSDR iPad control app seems to indicate that SmartSDR may eventually be multi-platform.

At 09 seconds to 23 seconds in, Mack says:

"On the right here you see the SmartSDR application. It's a TCP/IP enabled application that runs on Windows; it will also eventually run on Linux and the Mac OS."

Les,

Thanks for noticing. I thought this video was initially just for the Apple App store to evaluate Stu's software.

I won't speak for Flex radio since I act as an unpaid advisor and don't want to fuel speculation.

All things are possible in software. It will simply be a matter of someone writing the bits. This could even be a third party developer. If you look at Stu's K6TU iPad app it really is a functional interface less the panadapter which can be added at a later time.

I've been loving the Flex journey from the beginning. At the start of the 6xxx series each element of the SmartSDR software had to be manually installed on prototype hardware. We've come a very long way and v1.1 is just around the corner.

Happy New Year es 73,
