Myriad announced Alien Dalvik quite awhile ago – an app that lets you run Android apps on non-Android devices, but it’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything about it. Well recently the folks over at Engadget managed to get a hands on preview with Alien Dalvik version 2.0, and this time it’s bringing Android apps to iOS devices. I highly doubt we’ll be seeing this on the Apple App Store, (and it’s not like iOS users need Android apps in the first place – iOS has a much larger selection of apps to choose from). However, it’s always interesting to see cross platform computing taking place.
Myriad’s VP of Business Development, Olivier Bartholot, also talked about Alien Dalvik version 2.0 – the new version of the app runs in the cloud instead of doing all the processing on the device itself like the previous version of Alien Dalvik did. No word on how much difference this seems to make since the video demonstration looked pretty choppy. Not to mention relying on the cloud to do the processing will limit the places where you can use Alien Dalvik. Myriad does plan to introduce Alien Dalvik to different devices such as TVs, in-flight entertainment system and cars though. Visit the source link for a video demonstration.
