Hi there,

I would like to announce “Apple2ix”, a new Apple //e emulator app for Android (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.deadc0de.apple2ix.basic).

The Apple2ix emulator is designed for cross-platform (Mac/Linux/*BSD desktop and iOS/Android mobile), only the Android version is officially released and supported at this time. The source code primarily derives from the discontinued “apple2-emul-linux” project from the late ’90s and also contains more recent contributions from AppleWin.

Source code and collaboration is through GitHub: https://github.com/mauiaaron/apple2

Apple2ix features:

  • Apple2ix for Android integrates minimalist “touch keyboard” and “touch joystick” UI elements to make the playing of old arcade titles on a touch screen feel almost seamless
  • Provides support for a wide range of Android 2.3.3 “Gingerbread” and later phones and tablets
  • Minimal permissions (read/write external storage only)
  • Currently out in Play Store for Australia, Canada, New Zealand, U.K., and U.S.plans for more releases as translations become available
  • Free as in beer and free as in liberty

As the primary/sole developer on this side-project of love, I am very much interested in Android bug reports for the Android variant. Stay tuned!

Kind regards,
