Project Cider enables native execution of iOS apps and services on Android

Have you ever imagined what it'd be like if we could run iOS apps and games on our Android companions? We bet you have. Well, there are certain workaround techniques that allegedly allow you to do the unthinkable, but most of them require some kind of a virtual machine and the process is rather cumbersome. Project Cider might put an end to this, as it enables native execution of iOS apps on Android...

I think its cool. Just another cool thing that Android can add to its tool belt. It just keeps on making the best OS even better.

Agree. It just proves how flexible Android OS can be.

I will write a long generic comment, copy to my desktop notes, and wait for a new article to come, so I can paste it there and be the First Long First Comment!

Why buy a tiny little toy, with a tiny little non HD display, no NFC, no multi-window, no real multitasking. When you can buy flagships like the Galaxy S5, HTC one, Xperia Z2, Note 3, and many more that are superior to any iPhone in terms of hardware and software specs. You can do much more on any Android then could ever dream with any iPhone.

in my mind nokia n95 is still superior to itoys because it had a file manager and freedom and file transfer and many others things that apples phones will never ever have

Never saw this coming. Guess this was unavoidable though unexpected it is possible.
Now I am waiting Android apps on iOS.

Don't get excited, this will never be released publicly. Apple's legal department is already drafting the cease and desist orders.

Who would want buggy, force close apps on iOS?

Satatistics says taht iOS apps tend to crash more than Android apps!
"Do iOS Apps Crash More Than Android Apps? A Data Dive"
"Apps on iPhone 5s are crashing twice more often than on previous models"

The real question is, why would we want buggy force closing apps from iOS?
Stuff taken from a polished turd is still crap.

As an example of what not to do maybe?

iOS 7 made it buggy. iOS 6 was better than 7 IMHO
