I-Pads

Post by Barbara Novelli » Thu Nov 30, 2017 10:33 pm

Has anyone ever tried to function in Kitely with an iPad? I've been approached by a 1:1 iPad school that wants students to take my world's ESL classes via the students' iPads. Is that possible? I don't have an iPad to check it out with, but I do have a Galaxy Tablet, and it can't seem to download the Firestorm viewer. I've been searching on the web, but I haven't found any useful info yet.

Hi Barbara,

I'm not aware of an iOS-compatible SL/OpenSim viewer but you can use Lumiya Viewer to access Kitely from Android devices.

Okay, it works. But it will take some getting used to. The way you interface with it is very different, and the connection gets broken a lot. So far, I've been able to go into my inventory, and 1-finger chat a little. The maximum draw distance is 96 m, and that comes in very slow. I guess it's possible to teach a class with it, but I imagine tech problems like lag and lost connections will be very irritating for students.
