Is there a way for a App-challenged guy like myself to get offline functionality of MP on my laptop rather than a smartphone?

Please be gentle - I realize I should join the 21st century, etc., etc......

Thanks,

Howard

It might be possible to use the iPhone OS on Windows through VMware or some other emulation software. If it is, then you should be able to use the app on your computer. Honestly, I would be surprised if an emulation does not exist.

Print a mini-guide of the areas you are interested in to PDF (PDFCreator is a good free PDF package for Windows). Sunny Yum

do what I do and instead of paying for an iphone just pick up the iPod touch (the 4th gen, the newest). Everyone needs a music player, and then you can run whatever apps off of it. As a bonus it's also a lot thinner than an iphone so it's great to bring up on multi pitch. generationfourth

Hey Guys -

Thanks for the suggestions. I've done the mini-guide pdf several times, and it's useful for regions that are organized well. Some other regions aren't set up for it as well.

I'll look for an emulator.

Thanks again,

Howard
