Did you know that in Canada, about 20% of people don’t have a cell phone ? Most youngsters have a cell phone, but 45% of people aged 65 and over (almost half of the population) don’t have any mobile device. I am 72 and like other people of my generation, I would like to know if EMO can work with only a desktop computer (with Internet, of course) ? Thank you.
I thought so. If EMO cannot work with a PC application, would it be wise to mention it somewhere on this website ? Or maybe specify that it only works using an application from a cell phone or a tablet ? Just a suggestion.
Hello, @Toxy . . . unfortunately, the only P.C. apps I am aware of are ones in the Microsoft store if you have Windows 11. It would be convenient for those without mobile devices to have a P.C. version.
I have a cell phone myself (age 66) which did not have a GPS chip, so I had to purchase a tablet so that I could run the app.
I would love it if you would submit your suggestion under the ideas for improvement topic here.

I have no experience with Apple products, but I would be shocked if a simliar system doesn’t exist
Thank you for the link. I will keep that in mind. But I think the most simple solution would be to be able to run EMO simply with a personal desk computer. That way, a lot more people could enjoy that lovable pet robot, especially older folks who always appreciate good company.
