    Reunion Touch on an M1 Mac

    Has anyone tried installing Reunion Touch on an iMac with the new M1 chip? I want to share my tree with my Dad who doesn't have an iPad, but does have a Mac, and I understand that it is possible to install iOS iPhone and iPad Apps on desktops with the M1 chip.

    Not all iOS and iPadOS apps are guaranteed to run on the M1.

    Typically the software developer will adjust/tweak the app for M1 and then "enable" a setting in the app store that allows the apps to be installed on M1. If the developer has not yet done this, your next option would be to try "side-loading" the app, which is a bit more complicated.
