Pfaeffikon, Switzerland – Pilcrow AG today is pleased to announce the release of Power DOS 1.4.0, a completely revamped version of their DOS-emulator for iPhone and iPad devices. Originally released in 2014, Power DOS gained some success and was widely recognized. But like many other apps, it was removed from the App Store when Apple changed their guidelines. Pilcrow went over the books and re-wrote the whole app from scratch so that it meets App Store guidelines. Version 1.4.0 offers even better stability and Bluetooth options for keyboards have been added.
Now in full compliance with Apples App Store guidelines, Power DOS is a perfect emulator of the DOS that so many games and applications in the 80’s and 90’s have been running on. There was a time when DOS-emulators were really popular, but due to changes on the App Store, all of them have been removed sooner or later. Pilcrow AG now claims that their latest version of Power DOS is not only fully compliant with the App Store guidelines, but also a real emulator based on proprietary code.
“Just a while ago there were a bunch of DOS-emulators available on the App Store, most of them being simple DOS ports. We decided to create an emulator with our own code for bigger flexibility and to block discussions about copyright violations. The result is the latest release of Power DOS, completely written with proprietary code.” as Christian Schaffner, general manager of Pilcrow explains.
