Wine Android

5.11

With the Wine HQ application for Android devices, we can run Windows software on our smartphone or tablet. It's compatible with Win16 and Win32 systems

8/10 (41 Votes)

Wine HQ has been going around for quite a few years, a program that allows users of operating systems such as Linux or Solaris to run Windows software on their machines. Since Android is based on the Linux kernel, nobody should be surprised that there's also a version for this mobile operating system.

Run old Windows software on your Android

It comes along with functions similar to the PC version. In other words, we can run Windows applications on our smartphone or tablet. However, only Win16 and Win32 programs... but that's better than nothing.

We'll be faced with a user interface similar to the versions of Windows older than XP, such as Windows 95 and Windows 98, and we're going to need physical input devices such as a mouse and a keyboard. A good option could be to resort to a virtual keyboard app.

Thus, if you really want to, you can now run software designed for Microsoft's operating system on your Android phone.

Requirements and additional information:
  • Minimum operating system requirements: Android 2.3.
  • The installation of the app by means of the APK file requires the activation of the "Unknown sources" option within Settings>Applications.
