Android Apps coming to iPad

The developers over at Myriad seem to be doing what some people have been asking Apple to do, open up their App Store. Kind of. Android apps seem to be coming to the iPad through a jailbroken application.

The project is aimed to make all Android apps in the App Store compatible to fit to the iPad’s 9.5 inch screen.

“Myriad Alien Dalvik brings Android applications to non-Android devices, allowing OEMs, operators and application stores to leverage the Android eco-system across a much wider range of mobile devices. Android applications run unmodified and with no loss of performance on non- Android platforms.

From a user perspective, Alien Dalvik is completely transparent. Ported applications appear as native and can be seamlessly installed on the user’s device without user disruption. All the user sees is that he now has access to a wider range of applications, thus encouraging a higher frequency of downloads and increased ARPU.”

Myriad wants all Android apps to run smoothly alongside iPad apps, allowing the Android apps that aren’t available in the Apple App Store to run alongside our iPad apps such as iBooks.

Are you excited to potentially use Android on your iPad? Leave your thoughts below.
