Hi. Last month there was an Apple Keynote where they announced that they are ditching Intel and even ditching x64 architecture totally. They are moving to their own processors based on ARM architecture. To make it short: This means that you will be able to run iOS apps on your Mac PCs (and laptops too). So naturally this brings few questions.
Will you add the ability to control the spaceship with the mouse on mobile? Because you see, in 2 years Apple no longer will use normal apps and move completely to apps that use ARM. On Apple platforms it will be a brand new feature, but on android there already is OTG mouse function. I even tested it in CI5, but it wasn’t what you would expect (I had to click the LMB and then drag the mouse with auto-shoot function which is pretty mediocre).
Second. There is a really popular piece of hardware that uses ARM and is really cheap to get. No, it’s not smartphone. It’s Raspberry Pi - and especially the newest model 4B which ranges in price from 35$ to 75$ and the only difference is amount of RAM. Of course it being ARM device it can pretty easily run android apps. You can attach to it touchscreen device, but it’s better with mouse and for that we need to have mouse support in CIU. Of course in mobile version when it finally releases. So it would be good to have a great mobile version which could be then used both on android and Raspberry pi devices (as you can expect they both use OpenGL and not so long ago they started to work on Vulkan API which I highly recommend checking out since it can be used to achieve better performance and battery savings, but beware of it because it can be painful to use).
