11 Sep 09 - Version 1.1 now released that fixes bug that caused PCSim to crash on first generation devices. Now everyone can enjoy this old-school PC.
Let us know what upgrades you would like PC Sim to have. Possible future updates include:
- An extra 32MB of RAM!
- Larger hard disk
PCs take a long time to start up. To turbo start the computer (though this takes away realism) place a finger on the fan while pressing the power button and for the initial second of startup.
PCSim may not have 99% of the functionality of a real PC. Probably closer to 98%.
What's New in Version 1.1
- Important bug fix
- Upgraded RAM from 64MB to 96MB
Good.... For a start.
For $1.99, I thought this app would be pretty fun. The first few times, it's funny (Annoying Beep......Detected). But after a while, it started to bore me. And I caught on quickly that all you can do is start up, shut down, change the desktop, turn the monitor on and off, and break the computer screen. If you try to do anything else, it just crashes.
Maybe you can include more things in the start menu? (Computer info, settings, etc.) And maybe being able to actually connect to the Internet.
I won't delete the app for now because hopefully you'll update soon, but I would advise others to not buy this app. Not unless you're looking for a decent one-time laugh and have nearly two bucks to toss.
The Black Titan
I like how some people thought this was actually going to be something that you could use. It's like they thought someone made a working computer emulator for the iPhone, then put it in the AppStore, and sells it for $1.
It's fun to be able to relive when computers sucked and didn't do anything.
An update would be good, more things to do, error messages, all that fun stuff.
Love the app but...
The app is great and the pc itself is so realistic, but it needs more things on it and more stuff to do to it like pour water on it and damaging stuff like that. More applications and a working browser would be cool. And the pc not always crash just at random every now and then. Hope to see an upgrade soon cause this seems to be a promising fun app. Love it!
