Alien Dalvik 2.0 Brings Android Apps to iPad

by: Matthew SabatiniOctober 13, 2011

The Myriad Group has now created the ability to run Android apps on your Apple iPad. Thanks to Alien Dalvik 2.0.  But, the joy doesn’t stop there–the team has gone so far as to enable the use of Android apps on tablets, e-book readers, TVs, and even in cars.

In fact, the software does all of that with little to no changing or “hacking.”  Android Package (APK) files will be installed and launched on the device. According to The Myriad Group, in a nutshell, “From a user perspective, Alien Dalvik 2.0 is completely transparent and installed without user disruption.”  And, CNET also wrote, “Users simply enjoy the same rich Android ecosystem they have become accustomed to via mobile on other key screens, such as playing Angry Birds on HDTV.”

Although this may be seen as “useless” to some, if you are truly an Android fan, this next conclusion is for you. Now that Alien Dalvik 2.0 can put Android apps on almost any device out there, is there still a need for developers to produce apps for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and possibly other platforms? Of course not, and that is where this product will be helping Android overtake iOS. Imagine this: with Alien Dalvik 2.0, Android could possibly become the “standard” platform for applications.

    Just because something can be done doesn’t mean it should be done! This is one of those examples and is just soooo wrong.

    This is one of the stupidest things I’ve seen in a long time. Apple doesn’t want Android apps running on its iOS devices and they won’t let it into the market. These people could have made this for webOS & the Playbook out of the gate and they would have seen lots of use out of it asap instead they do it for iOS?!?!?!

    The other thing, this is only for Java apps. You know, those that need to be run via the Java VM in Android?

    This will be great for getting developers off a dead-platform where some corporate overlord is going to be making needless changes to your tool chain on a whim…
