Apple2ix for Android

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,
mauiaaron

Java on the Apple IIGS?

Miraculously, Java on the Apple II isn’t something new. But Mike Kohn is taking a different approach and experimenting with Java Grinder (which recently added support for the W65C816 CPU) to produce code that will execute on an Apple IIGS.

Ivan Drucker releases A2SERVER v1.2.5

Hello, hello.

A2SERVER 1.2.5 is now available. Its main new feature is to offer to install GS/OS 6.0.1 for network boot (as it did before), as well as community releases 6.0.2 and 6.0.3. It also now includes HFS.FST with the install, and has a handful of bug fixes.

You can update by typing “a2server-update” at the command prompt in Raspple II, the A2SERVER virtual machine, or whatever Linux box you’re running on.

In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, A2SERVER is a file server and network boot host for Apple II computers, allowing you to easily share files between your Apple II’s, classic Macs, and modern computers on the same network. It’s easy to set up, and runs on a Raspberry Pi, which is pretty much the cheapest computer in existence. It also is available as a premade virtual machine (via VirtualBox) for your modern computer, or can be installed directly on some Linux computers.

You can get A2SERVER for free at: http://ivanx.com/appleii

Enjoy,
Ivan.
