I now have my new iMac and am running Schwab's StreetSmart EDGE. It works perfectly and is way faster than my old (but i7 chip) PC. I will continue with two computers until the PC or my VV subscription runs out. It will be a sad day for me, after about 28 years with the VV system, but times change. My trading style is now more conservative and VV is only marginally useful. I's stay the course if it were compatible, but that's not my call.
Thank you Eugene Rosenberg and all of the others who have added their voices to a request for a real Apple version.
I am a long time friend of VV -all the way back to the time when VV was a weekly printed newsletter. I do not want to give up VV ever!
But at the same time I will not replace my sick and clunky Windows PC with another POS. My next computer will be a Mac and I know that this is more than a mere trend.
Please pay attention to what we are saying. There are many new and functional investing software out there- none in my opinion as good as VV, but they are getting closer. And they run on Macs. Wake up.
I think it is past time for a response from someone at VV on this issue. That your are working on it and you expect it in X amount of time; or you have no intention of ever making a MAC version; or . . .?
As a very long term VV subscriber and former VV User Group leader in two major metropolitan areas I'd like to speak out on this issue:
You are losing out on attracting a very rapidly changing dynamic of PC usage. The Windows OS is losing share to the Apple OS. This is happening primarily in the demographic that in my view VV most appeals to.
If re-writing for Apple is too daunting a task, then why not move the system into the cloud?
I have been a VV subscriber since the very early days (the printed weekly version, predating the early PC versions!).
The only reason I still hold on to this piece of crap Windows OS is because of my attachment to VV. I think it's time for you guys to get a clue. The major trend is away from Windows PC's in general and to the Mac OS for the type of work we do on VV.
I do use the mobile apps on my iPhone and iPad and they are useful for quick information. But for heavy lifting we need something better, faster and more reliable than the Windows OS.
For options traders who use (or want to use) VV this should be a no brainer! I would like it to also be included in the ORR in Unisearch. Just think how this could energize the PayDay Portfolio. This might even solve the unemployment crisis.

As an active trader it is very easy to have many ideas floating around on a number of watchlists. The ability to make notes or establish buy points (or other info) will greatly enhance the value of what is already an outstanding program.
