      Operations for Mac?

         I have been away from the list for awhile but getting back into everything.

         Has any operations software been developed for a Mac? I know none had been a few years ago.

         I use a Mac Ipad and Mac Mini.

      Actually the iPad is a different operating system from the Mac, so what runs on one won't run on the other.

      Due to the large difference in computing power, I doubt if you will ever see operations software for the iPad.

      The Mac mini will run JMRI, and has for a long time. Many people have switched to JMRI.

      There are a few Excel spreadsheets floating around the interwebs which folks have used to generate switch lists. Here's a link to a discussion of one that I came across: http://model-railroad-hobbyist.com/node/27714 . Excel works across all platforms, so if you've got guest operators with phones or tablets of almost any stripe, they can call up their switch list on their phones as they switch out their industries.
