Quick ‘How To’ Tutorial About Implementing x86 Support for Android Apps

Android-x86After my participation at the Intel Android CodeFest, I decided to make a tutorial on how to prepare Planet Conqueror to run on Intel based Android devices. The game uses the libGDX developer framework. I think it’s a good idea to write this article so that other developers using the same framework can successfully provide their apps with x86-architecture support and hopefully avoid any pitfalls while doing it.

Tips and Tricks to Optimize Android Apps on x86

Android-x86Intel has a vested interest in helping developers provide Android applications that run well (or even best) on Intel architecture. While Intel is working at the community level - optimizing Dalvik Java, V8 engine, and Bionic C; contributing to the code base; and providing releases with both 32 bit and 64-bit Kernels for IA; they are also creating new tools to help Android developers.

Forked Android build targets dual-boot x86 laptops, tablets

Android-x86A “Console OS” Kickstarter project is building an Android 4.4 fork for Intel CPUs on everything from PCs to tablets, complete with a dual-boot option. Intel is hoping to spur a new wave of dual-boot Android/Windows 2-and-1s and tablets with its Atom Z3000 and upcoming, newly announced Core M processors. So far, however, Android has yet to make much of dent in the PC market, either as a standalone or dual-boot OS.

Android on x86: Java Native Interface and the Android Native Development Kit

Android-x86One of Java's greatest advantages is that its design allows for cross-platform capability. This feature, however, is also a bug with regard to other aspects of programming. It is constrained in its interaction with the local machine, and thus the local machine instructions cannot be utilized to achieve the full performance potential of the machine.

How To Install Android KitKat On Your PC Natively

Android-x86When we talk about Android, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? I bet 99% of the people will answer smartphones or tablets (unless there’s an app that you’re crazy about and that’s what you prefer). However, Android, being the open source platform that it is, offers much more flexibility in terms of the hardware that it can run on, and so there’s Android out there that can run just fine on x86 computer architecture as well. Yup – full-blown Android running natively, not the likes of BlueStacks! In this post, we’ll show you exactly how to get that.

Android on Intel Updated to 4.4.2, Available Now for the Dell XPS12 and Intel NUC

Android-x86As you are undoubtedly aware, the vast majority of Android devices run on some variant of the ARM architecture. Despite this, Intel has been hard at work on the Android on Intel project. Intel’s efforts have resulted in the release of Android 4.4.2, which can be installed now on the Dell XPS12 and Intel NUC.

Acer Iconia A1-830 -- a budget Android tablet powered by Intel [Review]

Android-x86Android tablets are often hit or miss. There are typically two types -- good quality and poor quality, with very few in between. Android purists will tell you to stick with the Nexus line, but restricting the pool of available tablets defeats the purpose of Android entirely -- choice and diversity. Instead, consumers should keep an open-mind to all manufacturers.
