[NTLK] iOSEinstein with no jailbreak

Yes, I am up and running on an iPhone 6 Plus! (Thanks to Marisa for some head’s up observations on the TestFlight setup.)

There’s some odd stuff, like when it asks for text input (for example, during the initial SETUP phase) the chime that plays on boot-up loops continuously...but it’s easily fixed by first lowering the iPhone’s volume, then completing that line of text entry.

I’m able to use my Targus rubber-tipped stylus (that I got for my iPad years ago) to access the virtual keyboard and also write in Notes. The HWR, while slow, was surprisingly accurate, maybe even more so than my actual Newtons.

I wanted to pass along my experiences so that others might join in. We only have until February 26th!

Thanks,
--Forrest

This means I will not be able to offer the nonjailbreak version of Einstein after this time as apps that use the new service have to be approved by apple before testing can begin. If you want to get in on this offer please sign up in the next few days and I will make another build for your devices.
