    Is it possible to run Android Apps in Symbian or other OS? What makes Android apps unique when compared to other platform apps?

    I am trying to do something unique with my Android device that is to check if it is possible to run the Android apps in Symbian or other OS? Is there anyway to do it? By changing some code structure or so? What makes the Android apps unique when compared to the other platform apps?

    Hello Guest,
    It is impossible to run android files/apps in Symbian or other OS, simply because the extension won't be compatible either ways. Each OS is designed in a unique manner with different kernels and firmware versions, so you cannot think of running Android apps on Symbian or other OS. What makes android unique is that it provides a very smooth Graphical User Interface and is quiet different than the others. Its use on touch phones is rather addicting, and no wonder it has given a strong competiton to other mobile OS. Nowadays everyone prefers android over Symbian, BADA, Java. Thank You for contacting us.

    Hi,
    It is not possible to Run android apps in other mobiles such as Symbian OS or any videos OS. They both are using the same Java platform but the compiling of android applications is lot different when compared to that of the other OS so it is not possible to run those applications in other OS. You can try to port those applications based on the source code implementing the same methods. Also Symbian is a closed source which makes it much difficult to get the source codes where as in case of android it is open source so development is much more easy compared to Symbian and also it is more open so many developers will develop applications and that makes android application community a vast one when compared to Symbian. Also the Open Source community is the one that is making android a big unique community so it is more user friendly.
    Hope this Helps.

    No it is not at all possible to use android on other platforms. Android is specific and android itself is an operating system so there is no way you can install it in other Operating systems.

    Advantages are many it comes to usage and look. It has all the features one would need in his/her Mobile device. Good looking, easy usage menu, advanced graphics appearance, Price is cheap. and made of linux so its very stable.

    Hello,
    No, it is impossible to use android apps in other platforms like Symbian,ios.

    Android is different
    -It's a open source operating system based on Linux
    -Provides millions of applications
    -Support customizations,themes, live wallpapers


    thank You
