Myriad Develops Software to Run Android Apps on iPad

Myriad has designed new software that allows users to run Android apps on the Apple iPad.

The Alien Dalvik 2.0 allows individuals and enterprise users run Android apps on non-Android smartphones, including those that run on iOS.

The company said it would demonstrate the software at the CTIA Enterprise & Applications 2011 next week.

Alien Dalvik 2.0 also allows Android applications to run on other tablets and many other devices like e-books, TVs, autos and even avionics.

“Digital screens such as Internet-enabled TVs and in-vehicle displays, along with other consumer devices like tablets and e-books are proliferating at an astounding rate. Consumers are driving multimedia evolution and are demanding more converged multi-screen services,” Simon Wilkinson, Chief Executive Officer, Myriad Group.

“With Alien Dalvik 2.0, we are creating a more flexible, consistent user experience by mobilizing content such as live sports, recorded TV shows and on-demand movies, so users can enjoy content seamlessly from one device to the next,” he added.

The technology is expected to open more markets for the already booming Android platform and allow developers to develop an Android application once and distribute it everywhere.
