Yes, fantastic to see the return of a excellent emulation after the lost of m48 :(

It’s great to use, and fast, but there is no need to backup objects or directories. I don’t want to risk hours of programming followed by a crash and loose my programs...😊

You can easily backup objects. In fact, it’s easier now with iHP48 than with m48.

Maybe I couldn't find the instructions on how to save programs or other objects out of this iHP48 app.
Could you tell me which helpsfile or resource I could read in order to do that ? thank you.

It's not a usual way, but after you do it once, you will love how it is done.

Also, sorry I missed this post.

Open the "Files" app on your iPhone.
Go up the menu tree to "Browse." This page lists iCloud Drive, Dropbox, whatever you have set up.
Choose "On my iPhone."
Choose "iHP48.
Drop your binaries there.

Exporting objects to the same location from iHP48 and pull them out just like you put them in. Works every time like a charm.

I hope this helps.

FYI, I made a new photorealistic 48GX skin for iHP48 based on Eric Rechlin's (of hpcalc.org) Real Calcs skins that was designed to best fit my iPhone 12 mini's screen. I think it'll stretch ok to fit other iPhones, but I haven't been able to test that. If you're having issues, in the advanced settings of iHP48, try changing the Zoom setting to something else.

To use it, unzip the file and copy both the .png image and the .xml definition to your iPhone's /iHP48/Skins/HP48G folder and change the skin through the options menu. If you're curious about modifying the skin to fit a different phone, feel free to reach out and I can provide some tips.

Cheers!

It looks great on my iPhone 8. Thanks!

(And it turns out that you can download and unzip a zip file right on the phone nowadays, without even needing any third-party tools. When did that finally become possible? Nice, very convenient.)
