Still none as far as I know. I just checked the App Store. Same old stuff. Nothing that helps you pick winners

I used to hope Jeff would do something like Jcapper for iPad……..

Thanks Ralph, Harry. I have exhausted my search. I was hoping someone had a app that has served them well. I do not know why this has not been developed.
Thanks Gentlemen

In the old days, we had some guys who ran HSH remotely from their iPads.

IOW, they were at the track and logged into their home computer to run HSH.

Theoretically, this should work with ANY software that your computer will run.

Thanks Dave. I have tried several times a remote PC app. I always lose connection and I am done. Frustrating.

I'd bet if anyone knows who to make it work, it would be Just Ralph.

Maybe ask him.

The simplest thing to do is get a surface pro and run whatever you want!

Yep………


I have one that only leaves my house if I’m playing the horses. But it sits next to my iPad at SHRP in the Simo center

There's a simple answer -- the handicapping software market is small, and I mean tiny. The R & D costs to create a worthwhile app are high relative to the revenue the app will generate. Add into that the program updates, customer service, web site costs, etc. and very few programmers want to invest the time and money. I have always wanted to create some good programs and have started many handicapping projects, but I fall into the category of not wanting to invest my time anymore even though doing so is on my bucket list and would be a labor of love. Never say never, but other things in life take precedence.

Surface Pro Results

Chris: Could you please let me know how it goes if you decide to purchase a Surface Pro? I, too have been looking for a tablet I can take to the OTB which has both commercial and homegrown horse racing software on it. Thank You in advance!
