I don’t know if you have access to an Android device…but Einstein runs really well on my Hisense Sero 7 Pro tablet. (And I haven’t rooted—jailbroken it, in iOS terms—either.)

Fry’s Electronics (amongst others) often features smaller (7”) tablet devices at really inexpensive prices. While it’s like anything else—you have to do the due diligence, because some of them are junk—there are a few (like the Hisense) that are real gems. I got the Hisense there in September for about $60, IIRC. I’d bet you could still find one on eBay right now.

I can use the Targus stylus I got for the First Generation iPad to write notes, etc. in Einstein.

I’m pretty sure Matthias can set you up—he was a great help to me in my Android setup. Of course, I would be willing to provide any help that I can, as well.

Hope that helps.

And selling Einstein for iOS through the Apple Store - even if we sold it for 0.00$ - is not possible because Aplle STor clearly states that iOS apps must not be similar to any Apple product. That's quite hard to avoid for a simulator.

The Xcode project must be configured to sign the build with that certificate.  You'll also need a provisioning file installed on the device that includes the hardware ID of the device and the bundle ID of the app you will be installing.
