The title is quite self-explanatory. I find VUE an amazing tool, but as it isn't available on my iPad I've had to look for other solutions.
So please, an iOS port!

Keep up the good work!

This might help you with that - though I'm guessing there are possible privacy concerns (since apparently it involves cloud computing), and another problem is that it's closed source, proprietary software:

http://www.virtualchrome.com/

I don't know for sure if it will work, since I have no way to try it myself.

Sorry that I don't know of any free, libre, open source software that would work.

Best wishes,
Apollia

I just realized - VirtualChrome might only run Java in a web browser. (Not sure...)

But, perhaps if there's a way to run VUE in a web browser, then, VirtualChrome might work?

Or, if VirtualChrome can handle Java programs that aren't inside a web browser, I guess VirtualChrome might work.

Best wishes,
Apollia

I just figured out that VUE can run in a web browser, though with fewer features.

Info here: https://wikis.uit.tufts.edu/confluence/display/VUEUserGuide/20+Web+-+VUE+Applet

A page with a button you can click to go to a VUE applet hosted online: http://vue.tufts.edu/VUEApplet/info.cfm


I managed to get that hosted VUE applet to work with Java Version 7 Update 51, but I had to lower my Java security settings to get it to work.

And, since I'm wary of Java's security in general, I only tested it inside a Windows XP VirtualBox rather than my usual operating system (Lucid Puppy Linux 5.2.8).

I managed to successfully save a simple VUE map using the applet.


So, hopefully VirtualChrome would be able to run that VUE applet hosted online. And hopefully VirtualChrome would also let you save files, otherwise it won't be very useful.

I hope that helps!

Best wishes,
Apollia
