This is almost a dream come true for many iOS device owners. If you really want to see what Android is all about then we might have a window here without buying an Android phone. An open source project by FlexyCore, called In-the-box, will let you run Android apps on iOS devices. Now that might sound music to ears to many, it is not a simple click and install stuff. It definitely is not for the faint hearted who love their iOS devices way too much.
As a part of this project, Flexycore has ported Dalvik runtime to iOS, a subset of Android API and a iOS framework Java bridges are provided as a part of this project. Anyone is free to contribute to the project to enhance it further.
Here’s a video of explaining and running the omniscient “Hello World” program :
Looks like Android is the new darling of almost everyone including quite a few iPhone lovers. We had Bluestacks which lets Android run on Windows and now In-The-Box lets it run on iOS. Android is living the true open source dream. Happy hacking.
