Wine For Android – Run Your Windows Applications On Your Android Device

Posted In News, Reviews - By AndroidPress on Monday, February 4th, 2013 With 2 Comments

The development of apps for Android just never stops.  Not only do we get treated to some awesome applications and games, but there are several developers constantly working at bringing the more traditional computer experience to the mobile realm.  The majority of the time that means bringing some version of Linux onto an Android device.  However, sometimes that means bringing Windows onto Android, and that’s exactly what Wine for Android is all about.

Alexandre Julliard is the original developer of this project and originally the focus was on bringing the ability to run Windows applications on Linux and Apple OS X.  However, it has since expanded to include Android as well which is great news for us.

During a recent presentation they briefly showed Wine for Android in action.  Performance was characterized as “horrendously slow,” however, they were running Wine on an Android emulator rather than an actual device so that likely would have played a huge role in the slowness.

I haven’t been able to find any actual demo video or anything else right now and the app is likely a ways off still.  Nevertheless, it’s exciting to think that we could run Windows applications on Android devices in the future.

What are your guys’ thoughts about this new app?

    Dragged outside the box! A lifetime visitor to the white wine often
    something that goes into Chianti and the main area.
    This wine is 85 Cabernet Sauvignon goes just right.

    When preparing a dish harmonized by a few we enjoyed.

    Rose wine is not heavy as red wine but it’s not also light
    as the white wine. Most businesses prefer to prioritise those mails that are unique and attention-grabber.
    So, if you want to get the most out of your wine, or you know someone who is passionate about wine, then make
    sure that it is stored correctly and invest in a wine
    fridge.
